NEW YORK, Nov. 5 (UPI) -- New England quarterback Tom Brady was among those named Wednesday to weekly player honors in the NFL.

Brady completed 20 of 35 passes for 350 yards and three touchdowns Monday night in the Patriots' come-from-behind 30-26 win at Denver. He had one interceptions and a passer rating of 108.0, helping the Patriots improve to 7-2, one-and-a-half game better than Miami in the AFC East.

Brady was AFC Offensive Player of the Week. He was joined by end Dwight Freeney of Indianapolis (defense) and punter Chad Stanley of Houston (special teams).

NFC honors went to wide receiver Amani Toomer of the New York Giants (offense), end Willie Whitehead of San Francisco (defense), and punter Cedric Wilson of San Francisco (special teams).

Among the superlatives, Toomer finished with six receptions for 127 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' 29-17 win over the New York Jets. The 100-yard game was the 18th of his career, passing Homer Jones for the most 100-yard receiving games in franchise history.
