A record-setting season has earned New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady the AP's 2007 NFL Most Valuable Player Award.
Brady and the Pats established numerous league records while becoming the first team to finish a regular season 16-and-0. He tossed 50 touchdown passes to break Peyton Manning's mark of 48. Brady also led the league with a 117.2 passer rating, a 68.9 completion percentage and 4,806 passing yards. He had 12 games with at least three touchdown passes, and played just one game in which he didn't throw for a TD.
The Pats shattered NFL marks by scoring 75 touchdowns and 589 points.
Brady is the first Patriot to be named NFL MVP. He received 49 of 50 votes from a nationwide panel of media members who regularly cover the NFL. Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre picked up the other vote.
