Few players in the league are playing as well as Tom Brady. He's averaging just over 370 yards per game to go along with nine touchdowns and zero interceptions through three games. He has the third-best passer rating behind just Aaron Rodgers and Andy Dalton, and has thrown the second-most touchdown passes in the league this year.

All of those numbers were good enough to earn Brady another award in his illustrious career as he was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for September.

It's the eighth time Brady has won the award in his career which is tied with Peyton Manning for the most ever. It's also quite possibly the best start to a season he's ever had. His numbers are reminiscent of his 2007 campaign when he threw 50 touchdown passes and won the MVP award.
