Now that September is over, the NFL has handed out Player of the Month honors to players from both conferences and, according to WEEI, two New England Patriots ended up taking home some hardware. 

First, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady snagged AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors after torching the Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Jacksonville defenses through the first three weeks of the season. in the first month of the season Brady completed 72 percent of his passes and threw for 1,112 yards and nine touchdowns, without throwing an interception. He also became just the fourth quarterback to ever enter the exclusive 400 touchdown club last week against the Jaguars. It seems safe to say that the award was well deserved.

Joining Brady with a Player of the Month award himself is the team's kicker Stephen Gostkowski, who took home the honors as the AFC's top special teams performer in the first month. Gostkowski snagged his third ever P.O.M award after going perfect through the first month of the season, sending all seven of his field goal attempts through the uprights. Like Bady, he also made history in week three as he broke the NFL record for most consecutive extra point attempts made. His total is currently at 425 and counting.

Both of these guys were important parts to the team's 3-0 start to the year and will continue to be vital pieces to the puzzle as the season goes on. For now, New England looks to be well on their way to another great season. While the team has always been one that celebrates individual accolades much less than team success, let's celebrate the awards for them.
