Tom Brady Wins AFC Offensive Player Of The Week Again After Five-Touchdown Game

Tom Brady was not great in Week 1 of the 2017 NFL season. Since then, however, he’s been phenomenal.

The New England Patriots quarterback completed 25 of 35 passes for 378 yards and five touchdowns in Sunday’s 36-33 come-from-behind win over the Houston Texans, earning him AFC Player of the Week honors for the second consecutive week.

In his last two games — both Patriots wins — Brady has completed 74.3 percent of his passes for 825 yards and eight touchdowns with zero interceptions. He leads the NFL in touchdown passes this season despite not throwing any in New England’s season-opening loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

In Sunday’s contest, Brady led the Patriots on a 75-yard drive in the final 2:24 that culminated in a 25-yard touchdown pass to Brandin Cooks. That score allowed New England to hold off the upset-minded Texans, who entered the game as 14-point underdogs.

Brady and the Patriots will host the Carolina Panthers this Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.
