For the second straight week in 2017, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in the teams 36-33 victory over the Houston Texans last Sunday.
The honor marks the 29th time Brady has earned a Player of the Week award and is the fourth time it has happened in back-to-back weeks during a season. Brady accomplished repeat honors in 2007 (Weeks 6 and 7), 2010 (Weeks 12 and 13) and in 2011 (Weeks 1 and 2).
On Sunday Brady completed 25-of-35 passes for 378 yards and 5 touchdowns to no interceptions. For the 52nd time in his career, Brady led the Patriots to a win following a fourth quarter deficit and it was the eighth time Brady threw a final minute touchdown pass leading to a win.
Down 33-28 with 2:24 to play in the game, Brady completed two third down plays which helped set up Brandin Cooks 25 yard touchdown pass to complete the comeback victory.
Player of the Week. Again.
