If you read last week’s selection and think you’re experiencing a little déjà vu, that isn’t the case. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has once again outplayed his peers with relative ease. For the second straight week, he threw four touchdown passes with no interceptions en route to a 45-3 New England blowout over the division rival New York Jets. With his performance, Brady may have not only helped the Patriots lock up the AFC East, but also a second league MVP award for himself.
Brady picked apart the Jets defense, throwing a touchdown pass in every quarter of the game. When he wasn’t throwing touchdowns, he sustained drives that were capped off by BenJarvus Green-Ellis punch-ins. The Patriots scored on their first four possessions of the game, essentially putting any hope that this rivalry game would be competitive out to pasture early.
The big Patriots win is the 26th consecutive for Brady at home, surpassing Brett Favre’s record of 25-straight. Brady also moved into 13th place on the All-Time Touchdown Pass leaders list with 252. On the season, he’s thrown 27 touchdown passes and only 4 interceptions, presumably making him the front-runner for league MVP.
