Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is back, and he’s clearly still on top of his game.
On Wednesday, Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his role in dismantling the Browns last weekend in Brady’s 2016 debut. Brady was 28-of-40 passing for 406 yards and three touchdowns, all three to Martellus Bennett. The Patriots scored touchdowns on their first three series of the game.
Brady went over 400 passing yards in a game for the eighth time. It was his second career game of over 400 yards while throwing three touchdowns and no interceptions. Afterwards, Brady admitted he was rusty after serving a four-game suspension to start the season.
The weekly award is the 26th of Brady’s career. He’s now just one behind Peyton Manning, whose 27 are the most ever.
