Tom Brady is the AFC Player of the Week

After the amazing performance against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, in which he threw for 341 yards and four touchdowns, Tom Brady was named the offensive player of the week for the AFC. Keep that in mind when you are going to make your NFL Picks this Monday night when the Patriots host the New York Jets.

Brady is one of the most powerful players out there to be named the 2010 NFL MVP, as he has thrown 23 touchdowns this season with just four interceptions. Not to mention that he hasn’t thrown a pick since Week 6 when they faced the Baltimore Ravens; now he has six games without throwing a pick.

To me, there isn’t anybody out there that can compare with Brady right now. He is red hot reading the defenses, taking the spaces they give him, and adjusting to the different looks the defenses show.

Think about it, he has Danny Woodhead, a guy that no one wanted, and Berjarvus Green Ellis as his running backs. Ellis was the third running back when the season begun. After Randy Moss left, only Ben Tate presented himself as a true deep threat because Deion Branch is aging, let’s be honest. But also he made two rookie tight ends his primary receivers, whichi is another unique thing that Tom Brady is doing this season.

Of course, Brady is not the only one to attribute the Pats recent success, as their defense is doing an amazing job. Despite that they are not a classic hard-hitting unit, they do make big plays that change the game, just ask Peyton Manning if you don’t believe me.
