In what might be a precursor to a second NFL MVP award, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady won AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors for December/January.
Brady led the Patriots to a perfect final five weeks, en route to an NFL-best mark of 14-2.
He set a new NFL record for most consecutive passes without an INT in December, and he ended the year by extending the mark to 335. Brady hasn’t thrown an INT since Oct. 17.
In December and January, Brady threw 13 of his NFL-high 36 TD passes and had a passer rating of 124.5.
The Player of the Month award follows back-to-back Offensive Player of the Week honors Brady earned in Weeks 12-13.
Brady is the favorite to win the league’s MVP award that will be announced later this month.
