Tom Brady, QB (TB)

Spectacular effort in win

Brady completed 38 of 51 passes for 368 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday. He also rushed once for minus-1 yard.

The numbers basically speak to Brady's dominance Sunday, with the future Hall of Famer looking locked in from the start of the game. Brady particularly focused on Chris Godwin throughout the afternoon, targeting his fifth-year wideout a whopping 17 times and connecting on 15 of those attempts for 143 yards. Somewhat surprisingly, none of Brady's four scoring tosses went to either Godwin or Mike Evans, however, as he connected twice with Rob Gronkowski and once apiece with Leonard Fournette and Cameron Brate. The 22-year veteran now has multiple touchdown passes in seven of the last eight games, a sample that includes four tallies of at least four scoring throws. Brady's next opportunity to continue adding to that impressive stretch comes in a Week 14 home showdown against the Bills.
