Brady named FedEX Air Player of the Week

Tom Brady has done it again. Brady was voted FedEx Air Player of the Week for the second consecutive week, the NFL announced on Wednesday.

Brady has now won FedEx Air Player of the Week honors four times in Tampa Bay – the most in team history.

In Tampa Bay’s 48-25 win over the Atlanta Falcons, Brady completed 24-of-36 passes (66.7 percent) for 276 yards, five touchdowns, and zero interceptions, earning a 129.2 passer rating. His five passing touchdowns were the most by any player in Week 2, while his 129.2 passer rating ranked third. Brady also tied the Buccaneers franchise record for single-game passing touchdowns, making him the first player in team history with multiple five-touchdown performances.

He is just the fifth quarterback in league history with four-or-more touchdown passes in each of his team’s first two games of a season. Sunday’s game vs. Atlanta marked the 35th time Brady threw at least four touchdowns in a game, tying Peyton Manning (35) for the second-most such games in NFL history.

Through two games, Brady’s nine passing touchdowns lead the league, and his 655 passing yards rank fifth in the NFL, while his 113.3 passer rating ranks seventh.
