Chandler Jones, Tom Brady Win NFL Awards

Stew Milne-US PRESSWIRE

Happy Days! Two Patriots are getting recognized for their outstanding play.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the week for this outstanding performance in the weather against the Denver Broncos. In 22 degree weather, dropped to single digits because of the wind, Brady put on one of his best performances in his career (in the second half). Brady went 34 of 50, for 344 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions, and a long throw of 43 yards into the 22 mile an hour wind.

Brady topped current MVP front runner Peyton Manning, who posted a pedestrian 19 of 36 for 150 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, with a long of 31 yards (on a checkdown). Brady's level of competition and his output clearly contributed to why he was given the award.

On a bigger note, Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones was named AFC defensive player of the month because the voters would get bored of giving the award to J.J. Watt, Von Miller, and the now IR'd Geno Atkins every single month.

Jones put in great work this month, with 17 tackles, a tackle for loss, and four sacks in his three games. Juke move by Cam Newton aside, Jones has been a phenomenal player for the Patriots and has been lining up all over the defensive line to generate any sort of pressure the team needs.

Congrats to Tommy and Chandler, and keep up the good work!
