Brady, Patriots get historic 59-0 win over Titans

TOM Brady threw an NFL record five touchdown passes in one quarter as the New England Patriots thrashed Tennessee 59-0 on a snowy yesterday to send the hapless Titans plummeting to a new low in their winless season.

Brady had five TD passes in the second quarter, a record for one period. His six touchdown throws for the match tied Brady's own record at the club. And the 59-point margin matched the largest since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. The Los Angeles Rams beat Atlanta Falcons 59-0 in 1976.

The Titans, winless from six games, took their worst loss since they began play in 1960 as the Houston Oilers, eclipsing the 61-7 setback to Cincinnati in 1989. They won their first 10 games last season.

Vikings 33, Ravens 31

At Minneapolis, Brett Favre's 58-yard completion to Sidney Rice set up Ryan Longwell's fourth field goal, and Baltimore's Steve Hauschka missed a 44-yard field goal as time expired, allowing Minnesota to remain undefeated.

Favre threw for 278 yards and three touchdowns, but the Vikings nearly blew this one when they let the Ravens erase a 17-point deficit with 10 minutes to play.

Saints 48, Giants 27

At New Orleans, Drew Brees ended his two-game streak without a touchdown throw by completing 23 of 30 passes for 369 yards and four scores yesterday as New Orleans remained unbeaten.

Eli Manning was 14 of 31 for 178 yards. He lost his cool at least once, yelling at Ahmad Bradshaw and slapping his shoulder pad after the running back's lapse in protection precipitated a rushed throw that Jabari Greer intercepted early in the third quarter, stalling a promising drive.

Panthers 28, Buccaneers 21

At Tampa, Florida, DeAngelo Williams gained a season-best 152 yards on 30 carries and scored twice, including the winning TD with 29 seconds left.

Carolina squandered a 21-7 lead, giving up a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the third quarter and watching Tampa Bay pull level.

Texans 28, Bengals 17

At Cincinnati, Matt Schaub equaled his career high with four TD passes - two to tight end Owen Daniels - as Houston pulled away to deny the Bengals another shot at a late comeback win.

The Bengals had won three straight games in the last 22 seconds.

Steelers 27, Browns 14

At Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisberger threw two touchdown passes as the Steelers beat rival Cleveland for the 12th time in a row.

Roethlisberger, second in the league in passing and on pace for what would easily be the best statistical season of his career, was 23 of 35 for 417 yards in his second career 400-yard game. He threw for 433 during a 31-20 loss to Denver in 2006.

Raiders 13, Eagles 9

At Oakland, California, Louis Murphy made two key blocks to spring Zach Miller's 86-yard touchdown catch, and Justin Fargas ran for 87 yards as Oakland's defense harassed Donovan McNabb all day.

The result was one of the more shocking ones so far this season as the Raiders had lost three straight games by at least 20 points for the first time in franchise history, while the Eagles were second in the league in points per game.

Cardinals 27, Seahawks 3

At Seattle, Arizona moved into a share of the National Football Conference West lead as Warner completed 32 of 41 passes for 276 yards and two touchdowns.

Kurt Warner tied an NFL record for being the fastest to throw for 30,000 yards in a career and Larry Fitzgerald tied his career high with 13 receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown.

Bills 16, Jets 13, OT

At East Rutherford, New Jersey, Rian Lindell kicked a 47-yard field goal with 2:44 left in overtime, making up for a miss at the end of regulation.

The Bills (2-4) took advantage of Mark Sanchez's fifth interception of the day to snap a three-game losing streak, and send the sputtering Jets (3-3) to their third straight loss.

Falcons 21, Bears 14

At Atlanta, Michael Turner scored the go-ahead touchdown on an otherwise forgettable night, powering over from 5 yards with 3:06 remaining, and the defense held at the end to preserve an Atlanta victory.

Matt Ryan threw two touchdown passes for the Falcons (4-1), who matched the best five-game start in franchise history.

Packers 26, Lions 0

At Green Bay, Wisconsin, Aaron Rodgers got sacked five times but still managed to have a big day against Detroit's defense, throwing for 358 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

Donald Driver became the franchise's career receptions leader with a first-quarter catch and rookie outside linebacker Clay Matthews III had two sacks as the Packers (3-2) turned in a dominant defensive effort against an undermanned Lions offense.

Chiefs 14, Redskins 6

At Landover, Maryland, Ryan Succop's four field goals, including the go-ahead 46-yarder with 3:36 to play, plus a last-minute safety were all the Chiefs needed.

They earned rookie coach Todd Haley his first win and Jim Zorn another week of extreme questioning about the future of his job and the Washington franchise.

Jaguars 23, Rams 20, OT

At Jacksonville, Florida, Torry Holt had 101 yards receiving in his first game against his former team, Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 133 yards and three touchdowns and Jacksonville won in overtime.

Josh Scobee provided the winner, a 36-yard field goal with 8 minutes to play in the extra frame.
