Great Games: Randy Moss And The

The New England Patriots have consistently been one of the better teams in the National Football League over the past decade. In that same time period, the Buffalo Bills franchise seems to have fallen on hard times. These two teams have played twice a season for decades, and often play each other very tough. On November 18th, 2007, the Patriots went into Buffalo though and showed no mercy.

The game was at Ralph Wilson Stadium and New England was sitting with a 9-0 record at the time about to take on a 5-4 Bills team. The first quarter saw Laurence Maroney and Randy Moss both score for the Patriots and Roscoe Parrish score on a long passing play for the Buffalo Bills. The second quarter started with the Bills down 14-7 and that would be as close as the game ever got again. Randy Moss scored on passing plays of 16, six, and 17 yards in the second quarter, all on throws from Tom Brady, as the Patriots put the game away by halftime. The score at the half was Patriots 35 Bills 7.

The third quarter saw the Patriots add a touchdown on a Tom Brady to Ben Watson three yard score and Buffalo answer back as best they could with a 52 yard field goal by Rian Lindell. The fourth quarter would see New England add two touchdowns, the first a one yard run by Kyle Eckel and the second a 35 yard fumble return by Ellis Hobbs. The final score of the game wound up being 56-10 with the Patriots upping their record to 10-0.

The final numbers that Moss had to show for the game were very impressive as he caught 10 passes for 128 yards and four touchdowns.
