Tennessee Sweet Mash

On this given Sunday, there was more historic going on than a Nor'easter in mid-October.

Your New England Patriots tied the all-time NFL record for margin of victory with a 59-0 pummeling of the hapless (now 0-6) Tennessee Titans. But wait, Tom Brady also passed for 5—count 'em—5 touchdown passes in one quarter, setting a new NFL mark.

Add to this over 600 yards of offense, another touchdown pass by Brady, a decent performance by back-up QB Brad Hoyer (undrafted), and a 100-plus yard performance by suddenly stupendous Laurence Moroney, and this one is enough to make any Pats fan giddy!

So, they're off across the pond to face another winless team next Sunday at Wembley, and the 6-hour flight to Merry Olde England could not possibly be sweeter.
