TAMPA ― Tom Brady had a career passing day Sunday against the Dolphins ― which is saying something, given all of his records ― and the NFL took notice.

Brady was named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Week after passing for 411 yards and five touchdowns in a 45-17 win over the Dolphins. It was the first time in Brady’s remarkable career that he passed for at least 400 yards and five TDs in the same game.

It’s the 32nd time Brady has won the weekly honor during his career, extending his record for the most in league history.

For the fourth consecutive game, Brady did not throw an interception, extending his streak to 203 consecutive pass attempts without an INT.

Brady led all quarterbacks in Week 5 with five touchdown passes and owned a 144.4 passer rating. It’s the ninth time he has thrown for five or more touchdown passes in a game.
