For the second consecutive week and 17th time in his career, Patriots’ QB Tom Brady has been named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week.

Brady was 21-for-29 for 326 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in New England’s 45-3 win over the Jets on Monday night.

He got the nod for his Thanksgiving Day performance against the Lions as well, a day when he earned a perfect passer rating.

Since the NFL instituted the weekly awards in 1984, the Colts’ Peyton Manning has been honored the most times, at 20; Dan Marino – 18, Brady – 17, Brett Favre – 16, and John Elway – 15 round out the top five.
