NEW YORK, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the first AFC Offensive Player of the Week in the 2009 NFL season.

Brady, 32, playing for the first time since a season-ending knee injury against Kansas City in Week One of 2008, completed 39-of-53 passes (73.6 percent) for 378 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in a 25-24 victory against the Buffalo Bills Monday night.

He rallied the Patriots from a 24-13 deficit with two touchdown passes in the final two minutes.

Other AFC honorees were New York Jets linebacker David Harris (defense) and Pittsburgh place-kicker Jeff Reed (special teams).

Harris made a team-high 12 tackles with one sack in the Jets' 24-7 road win at Houston.

Reed's 33-yard field goal gave the reigning Super Bowl champions a 13-10 overtime victory against the Tennessee Titans.
