 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -Chasing perfection is second nature to Tom Brady.
At 9-0 coming out of the bye week, the New England Patriots quarterback welcomes the challenge of making a run at history.
``I try to win every single time I take the field,'' Brady said Wednesday as the Patriots prepared for Sunday's game at Buffalo. ``I try to win at backgammon. I try to win in cards. I try to win driving to the bubble when we practice in the bubble.
``That's competition and being an athlete. If you don't want to be in that position, you might as well just quit the game. If it's too much to say, hey, you're winning and now all of a sudden there's pressure, this probably isn't the right sport for you.''
Only 17 times has an NFL team started a season 10-0. It has happened nine times since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger, most recently in 2005 when the Indianapolis Colts started 13-0.
Although linebacker Adalius Thomas joked, ``What perfect record?'' when the subject was broached, it's becoming increasingly difficult for the Patriots to dodge the inevitable comparisons to the 1972 Miami Dolphins, who went 17-0 to become the NFL's lone perfect champions.
From the covers of national magazines to a regular spot in prime time, the Patriots seem to be everywhere these days. After Sunday night's game against the Bills, the Patriots play Philadelphia the following Sunday night in Foxborough and visit Baltimore on Dec. 3.
``It's been that way for six years,'' Brady said of the attention on a franchise that has won three Super Bowls and five AFC East crowns since the 2001 season. ``I think I'd rather be in this position than in any other position.''
