Brady, the AFC's top offensive player, torched Dallas for five touchdown passes and 388 yards in a 48-27 rout, and became the first quarterback ever to throw three or more touchdowns in six straight games to start a season.
Also named in the AFC were Jacksonville end Paul Spicer (defense) and Baltimore place-kicker Matt Stover (special teams).
Spicer had three sacks and 11 quarterback pressures in a 37-17 victory over Houston. Stover booted five field goals, as the Ravens topped St. Louis, 22-3.
Peterson scored three times and rushed for 224 yards, as the Vikings beat the Bears, 34-31. Hester became the third player ever with an 80-yard punt-return touchdown and an 80-yard-plus scoring reception in the same game.
