    Quarterback Drew Brees of the San Diego Chargers gets AFC Offensive Players of the Week for games played the fourth week of the 2005 season (October 2-3), the NFL announced today.

    QB Drew Brees - With a 137.5 passer rating on 19 of 24 passing (79.2 percent) with a pair of touchdowns, San Diego quarterback Drew Brees guided the Chargers to a 41-17 win at New England. The home loss for New England was its first since December 22, 2002. Brees' accuracy was consistent under pressure, completing seven of nine passes on third downs for 99 yards and a touchdown. The 6-0, 209-pounder from Austin, Texas completed his final seven third-down attempts. San Diego's 41 points account for the most scored against the Patriots in nearly seven years (Nov. 8, 1998: Atl 41, NE 10). With the win, San Diego ups its record to 2-2.

    The fifth-year veteran from Purdue is the second Charger to earn Player of the Week honors in as many weeks as LaDainian Tomlinson earned the distinction for Week 3. This is the second Player of the Week Award for Brees (Week 8, 2004).
