The drive towards an undefeated season was never in question last night as the Patriots easily dismantled the Bills in a 56-10 rout.
Tom Brady threw four TDs to Randy Moss – all in the first half leading to a 35-7 lead at the break – and a third quarter touchdown to Ben Watson as the Patriots never looked in jeopardy of getting trapped by the streaking Bills.
Brady now has 38 TDs and just four interceptions, sitting just 11 away from Peyton Manning’s single season record. Brady now owns the franchise record for TD passes in a season and career TD passes. With his 16th TD catch, Moss owns the single season franchise record for TD receptions and is just six away from tying Jerry Rice’s NFL single season record of 22.
This game was dominated in all three phases of the game by the Patriots. Though J.P. Losman connected with Roscoe Parrish fora 40 yard touchdown in the first, the Bills would never snap the ball in the Patriots redzone as the defense caused chaos all over the field.
10 down, six to go for a perfect regular season. With the Ravens unable to put many points on the board and the Steelers falling to the previously 1-8 Jets, the Patriots are very close to locking up the AFC East, a first round bye and home field throughout the playoffs. The Patriots played in the first of three consecutive night games. Next Sunday night the Patriots host the Philadelphia Eagles on NBC then travel to Baltimore for Monday Night Football.
