The NFL refused torelent in going after Tom Brady. So excuse the Patriots quarterbackif he couldn't help making up for lost time.Brady, barring injury or some other ridiculous suspension, will play only 12 regular-season games in 2016. That'splenty for him to win league MVP.MORE: Patriots-Bills highlights | Week 8 scoreboardYes, New England did go 3-1 to start the season without Brady. Yes, there are several other good candidates who didn't more probably than not deflate footballs.Brady would have to playat an insanely high level for the league to accept the nightmare of him gettingitsmost prized individual award for the third time, and forthe first time in six seasons.It's happening.When we last saw the Patriots play the Bills, in Week 4during the fourth and final game of Brady's suspension Carolina Panthers Jersey , New Englandcouldn't score and lost, 16-0.Fast-forward to Sunday's rematchin Buffalo, Brady's fourth game from suspension. The Patriots dominated, 41-25. Brady was 22-of-33for 315 yards, 4 TDs, zero INTsand a sparkling 137.0pa ser rating.That rating actually improved his numberover his first three games back, which was an NFL-leading 132.6. He Julius Peppers Jersey went in averaging 335 yards per game with 8 TDs to no picks.Hecomes out ofWeek 8 with 1,319yards and 12 TDs. Over his version of a "full" 2016 season, No. 12 is looking at 3,957yards and 36 TDs.MORE: Phallic object thrown on field at Bills-PatriotsThe first thing a playerneeds in orderto win MVP is the numbers.When Bradylast wonthe MVP, six seasons ago in 2010, he totaled 3,900 yards with 36 TDs to only 4 INTs. That works nicely.So his current projectionswould be terrific for someone playing 16 games. By the way, without Deflategate, Brady would be looking at 5,276 yards, 48 TDs and, yep, stillno picks in 2016.Winning MVP also requires being on a dominant winning team. That's aneasy part, too.The Patriots are now7-1, 4-0 with Bradyand back to lapping the AFC East and separating from the rest of the NFL.Ben Roethlisberger was a strong favorite just two weeks ago, but he got James Bradberry Jersey hurt.Matt Ryan and Derek Carr keep making their cases, but their teams have cooled a little. Ru sell Wilson and Cam Newton have the potential to get hot in the second half to carry their teamsbutfor noware far out of the conversation.The bottom line is nobodyin the NFL is playingas well as Brady, and he'ssurpa sing his own lofty standards. And he's 39 friggin' years old.PHOTOS: Brady's NFL life | Best of Week 8There's no doubt Brady looks rejuvenated from his month-long "vacation." He was beat up through another long season deep into the playoffs in 2015. A good indication of his fresh legs is the fact that, at his age, he's also on pace for a career-high 132 rushing yards after an impre sive 15-yard rumble in Buffalo.Brady Mama may be on to something about that Devin Funchess Jersey "speed."Brady is doing plentyfor the Patriots with his armand dealing like it's 2007 or '10. Given the circumstances, this is setting up as the greatest season of his elite, all-time career.
