A week after setting the NFL record with his 28th player of the week award, Brady earned his 29th after completing 25 of 35 passes for 378 yards and five touchdowns and no interceptions in the come-from-behind victory. The five-time Super Bowl champion connected with Brandin Cooks for a 25-yard touchdown with 23 seconds left. It was Brady's 52nd time leading the Patriots to a win following a fourth-quarter deficit.
The NFL also announced Wednesday that Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his team's Week 3 win against the Oakland Raiders. He was 25 of 30 for 365 yards and three touchdowns to lead Washington over Oakland 27-10 on Sunday night.
Dallas defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his dominating performance Monday night in Arizona, posting three sacks and three tackles for loss with six quarterback hurries in the Cowboys' 28-17 win over the Cardinals.
The NFC Special Teams Player of the Week went to Philadelphia rookie kicker Jake Elliott, who booted a 61-yard field goal as time expired to send the Eagles over the New York Giants 27-24.
The AFC special teams award was earned by Buffalo Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka, who was 4-for-4 in field goals -- including from 53 and 55 yards -- and made both his extra-point attempts in the 26-16 victory against the Denver Broncos.
