New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week, for the third time this season, after leading the team in their 41-16 thrashing of the Denver Broncos, Sunday night. 

Brady was a nearly perfect in Denver, completing 25 of the 34 pass attempts he had on the night for 266 yards. Of those 25 completions, Brady spread the ball to nine different receiver and connected with three different targets for touchdowns.

Brady's stellar effort helped him notch his 86th career regular season, road victory. That pushed him ahead of Peyton Manning for most such victories by a quarterback in league history.
