Tom Brady named AFC offensive player of the week

FOXBOROUGH, MA (WHDH) - The New England Patriots announced Wednesday Tom Brady has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his 33-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns Sunday.

This is the 26th time in Brady’s career that he has received the honor.

Peyton Manning was named offensive player of the week 27 times, the most in NFL history.

Brady completed 28-of-40 passes for 406 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the victory at Cleveland. It was his eighth career 400-yard game and first since he passed for 466 yards at Buffalo on Sept. 20, 2015. Brady finished with his 72nd career 300-yard game in the regular season, third in NFL history to the 98 by Drew Brees and 93 by Peyton Manning.

This is the fourth time this season a Patriots player has earned an NFL honor in 2016. Stephen Gostkowski was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in the win against Arizona on Sept. 11 and Ryan Allen was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance against Houston on Sept. 22.
