Patriots quarterback Tom Brady named AFC Offensive Player of the Month

Quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, linebacker Kirk Morrison of the Oakland Raiders, and kick returner-wide receiver Joshua Cribbs of the Cleveland Browns are the AFC Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Players of the Month for September, the NFL announced.

From the NFL release:

As the Patriots posted a 3-0 record* in September, Brady led the NFL with a 79.5 completion percentage and a 141.8 quarterback rating. Brady completed 70 of 88 passes for 887 yards with 10 touchdowns. In Week 3 against Buffalo (9/23), Brady set a new career-high with a 150.9 passer rating and tied a career-high with four touchdown passes. The veteran signal caller tossed three or more touchdowns in three consecutive games (9/9-9/23) and his 10 touchdown passes are the highest three-game total of his career. With Brady at the helm, New England was the league's number two ranked offense in September as the team scored 38 points in all three games.

In his eighth season from Michigan, this is Brady's first career Player of the Month Award.

* Please note: While the rest of the league (minus bye teams) played their fourth game in September, the Patriots played their fourth game on Oct. 1.
