METAIRIE, La. The NFL has named Drew Brees its NFC Offensive Player of the Week after another standout performance on Monday Night Football.

Brees was 30 of 39 for 413 yards, four touchdowns and a 144.5 quarterback rating in helping New Orleans improve to 4-0 with a 38-17 win over previously undefeated Miami.

The honor is the 15th time Brees has been honored with the award since coming New Orleans in 2006. Only Tom Brady, with 16 AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors, has had more in that period.

The Saints are one of only two NFC teams to remain undefeated heading into Week 5.
