Just how dominant was New England's performance against the Broncos last weekend? They accomplished something that they haven't done in almost two decades.
Tom Brady earned the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week and Dion Lewis was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, giving the Patriots two weekly award winners for the first time since 1998. Back then it was Drew Bledsoe and Adam Vinatieri who took home the honors.
Brady hit on 25 of 34 passes for 266 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Patriots to their seventh win. The victory was also his 86th career road win, which moved him past Peyton Manning for the NFL record. The Player of the Week award was Brady's 30th of his career (a record) and 2017 is now the fifth season in which Brady has won three Player of the Week honors (also a record).
Lewis scored on a 103-yard kickoff return against the Broncos, helping him earn some hardware. He's the first Patriots returner to win Special Teams Player of the Week since Julian Edelman accomplised the feat back in 2014.
Remember when Brandin Cooks rode Rob Gronkowski around like a horse to celebrate a Patriots touchdown back in November?
Well, Gronk doing Gronk things in Miami managed to find about the only person he could ride.
Shaquille O'Neal, at 7-foot-1, gave 6-7 Gronk a ride on his shoulders as they celebrated the debut of "Shaq's Fun House" as part of the three-day Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
So, who won the dance-off?
Patriots safety Duron Harmon has returned to the U.S. after he was reportedly temporarily detained when he tried to enter Costa Rica with 58 grams of marijuana.
The Costa Rica Star reports that Harmon, 27, was traveling from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and was temporarily detained Friday night in Costa Rica with the marijuana inside a can of Arizona ice tea, along with three pipes with cannabis oil, THC candy and four glass containers with compressed marijuana weighing a total of 4.3 grams.
"We are aware of the situation involving Duron Harmon Friday night in Costa Rica," the Patriots said in a statement. "He has since returned to the U.S. and we are seeking to gain more information. At this time, we have no further update."
Harmon, who has been with the Patriots his entire five-year NFL career, had four interceptions and 23 tackles last season.
