J-E-T-S, Just Easy To Score. OK, maybe that's too harsh on our Border War Buddies from the swamps of New Jersey. NAH! The Patriots began their mission to the Super Bowl by dominating Mangini's Minions with a 38-14 rout.
Newcomer Randy Moss caught 9 Brady throws for 183 yards and a TD, and Wes Welker got 6 passes for 61 yards and another TD. To top it all off, Ellis "The Rim Man" Hobbs set an NFL record with a 108-yard kick-off return to open the second half. So, the new, improved Uber-Team that is your New England Patriots has come to play. And they have made their opening statement.
