    @Patriots Tom Brady has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his 340-yd, 4-TD performance in Buffalo!

    @Patriots: This is 21st time Brady's received Player of the Week - tying the @nfl record held by Peyton Manning.

    Well, it's good that he got some props, but to be honest, I don't even think he was the Offensive Player of His Team (nevermind NFL).

    This must be the first time a QB has won Offensive Player of the Week when his team provided over 250 yards of rushing offense.

    Wow, I thought Peyton would get it because he had better numbers. They both played garbage defenses.

    It helped him that the rushing yards were split between two guys. If Ridley or Bolden had gotten all 250, they would have probably won it.

    How did he have better numbers? He only had a higher completion percentage, but Brady also rushed for a TD and brought his team back from a 14 point deficit in the middle of the third quarter.

    Furthermore, Buffalo's D was not considered garbage before the game. What with all the hubballoo I was reading about their front seven. And they did put a fair amount of pressure on TB ...that is, until the pats started running it down their throat. LOL

    Well Brady was quite surgical, except for those times when he was not.

    Though, I hadn't commented on this and I had planned to. Brady did buy himself some time in the pocket (in different ways than usual) and did end up making some key plays that he normally doesn't attempt.

    It's an honor for him and he had a good game, but that was a team butt whooping and all the parts worked well together (must be the O flowing back through Welker).

    I thought it was one of his best pocket awareness days in a long time. He was stepping up and around like a champ.

    He's done a great job the past two weeks against a team that usually gives him fits and another that has geared up to try to give him fits. His reads have looked flawless, his pocket presence has looked flawless, and his throws have been about as good as you can expect from anyone. I think he's as deserving as anyone, and thought the last two games were a nice bounce back from what looked like a less than stellar one against the Cards.

    The Bills inability to stop the run lost them the game.

    It was not lost on Bills fans, however, that the game turned not when the Patriots started running with great success, but when Brady was finding Welker open for 15 yard scampers.

    Go to the play-by-play log of the game. Down 21-7, Brady was passing.

    I think I agree with you on this one. Those RB's should have shared the award.

    Disable Jersey

    Precisely my take on his game. Got off several passes after even being grabbed by a defender. Most notable pocket movement was pocket collapses, Brady rolls to his weak side left and hits Woody who smartly had broken off his pattern seeing the QB in trouble, resulting in a TD.

    Now add in 2 drives killed by player fumbles and a couple drops by Gronk, one a TD toss and his day was beyond stellar. Galactic.
