Tom Brady is AFC Player of the Week

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady continues to set records in 2012. He earned another record Wednesday by being named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for an NFL-high 23rd time.

Brady was honored after throwing for 296 yards and four touchdowns in a 42-14 thrashing of the Houston Texans. Brady was masterful and put another stamp on his case to be named NFL MVP.

Brady has gone 45 straight games with at least one touchdown pass, which is third all-time in NFL history. This also is the third time this season Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
