New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley and New York Jets return man Brad Smith have been named the AFC players of the week.
Brady won the offensive player of the week award for completing 23 of 26 passes for 267 yards and four touchdowns in a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He set a Patriots record for the highest completion percentage in a game.
Woodley won the defensive player of the week award after abusing a banged-up Ravens offensive line. Woodley had seven total tackles and two sacks, and he also forced a fumble and knocked down a pass.
Smith won the special teams player of the week award after he had a 106-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against the Colts that kept the Jets’ playoff hopes alive.
