After struggling two weeks ago in Foxboro against the Carolina Panthers, Randy Moss caught four touchdown passes in yesterday’s 35-7 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars back at Gillette to keep the New England Patriots atop the AFC East Division. The 10-5 Patriots are certainly playing with confidence looking ahead to their upcoming post-season campaign.
“It’s the time of year where we really need to start playing good football,” said QB Tom Brady, “and I think today was one of our best 60 minutes that we played all year.” Brady was able to complete 26 of 28 passes for 267 yards and four touchdowns.
Wes Welker pulled in 13 receptions for 138 yards. He has now caught over 10 passes for at least 100 yards in his last seven games. He is the NFL leader in receptions with 122. “I knew my numbers would probably go up just having Tom and the type of offense we’re in,” said Welker, “but I never knew it would be like this.”
