Patriots’ Brady Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week
In Tom Brady’s first game back from his 4-game suspension, the 11-time Pro Bowler put a beating on the Cleveland Browns completing 28 of his 40 passes, throwing for 406 yards and connecting for three Touchdowns with Martellus Bennett. Brady also rushed twice for 14 yards, along with posting a QBR of 96.6, the highest among Quarterbacks in week 5, which contributed to the Pats 33-13 victory.
Brady’s performance against the Browns, marked his eighth 400 passing yard game, which help seal his 26th POW honor. Brady now only trails Peyton Manning who has been named for the honor 27 times.
Along with Brady’s return and stellar play, came season-high performances from TEs Martellus Bennett (6 Rec, 67 Yds, 3 TDs) and Rob Gronkowski (5 Rec, 109 Yds), WR Chris Hogan (4 Rec, 114 Yds) and RB James White (4 Rec, 63 Yds). On the season the Pats are now 4-1, and look destined to go on a run with a determined Brady under center and getting all his receiving corps involved.
As for their next matchup, the New England Patriots will face off against the shaky (2-3) Cincinnati Bengals, as they look to continue their hot play and improve to 5-1.
