This season, Brady has totaled 28 passing touchdowns and just two interceptions. His 14:1 touchdown to interception ratio is a new NFL record. The great season from Brady has resulted in him being an MVP candidate this season. The ability of Brady to protect the ball this season has been outstanding.
