Brady sets a record for TDs in a quarter
New England quarterback Tom Brady set an NFL record with five touchdown passes in one quarter in the Patriots’ 59-0 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Brady threw those five passes in the second quarter, and the Patriots built the biggest halftime lead in league history at 45-0. The six touchdown throws tied Brady’s own Patriots record. And the 59-point margin matched the largest since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970 - the Los Angeles Rams’ 59-0 win over the Atlanta Falcons in 1976.
“Every week we’re learning something more about ourselves and what we can do,” said Brady, who finished with six touchdown passes. “There’s no doubt a game like this can give you a lot of confidence.
The Patriots (4-2) gained a club-record 619 yards, with Brady completing 29 of 34 passes for 380 yards and matching the number of scoring passes he totaled in his first five games.
BENGALS: Defensive end Antwan Odom has a severe Achilles tendon injury that will leave Cincinnati without its top pass rusher indefinitely.
Odom was tied for the league lead with eight sacks when he got hurt during the first quarter of Houston’s 28-17 victory on Sunday. Coach Marvin Lewis said afterward that the injury is “probably pretty severe,” but tests would determine its extent.
PANTHERS: Carolina safety Dante Wesley was ejected late in the first half of Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay when he launched himself into Buccaneers punt returner Clifton Smith, who had signaled for a fair catch.
The hit with 10 seconds left in the second quarter brought players from both teams off the sidelines. No penalties resulted from the pushing and shoving between the NFC South rivals.
SEAHAWKS: Seattle linebacker Lofa Tatupu will miss the rest of the season after tearing his left pectoral muscle in Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Seattle coach Jim Mora said Tatupu will undergo surgery and be done for the season.
LIONS: No. 1 draft pick Matthew Stafford said he knew nothing about a report that tests on his injured right knee are being forwarded to Dr. James Andrews for review.
Stafford said immediately after the Lions’ 26-0 loss to the Green Bay Packers that it was the first he had heard of any report about Andrews, the noted orthopedic surgeon in Birmingham, Ala., looking at tests on his knee.
