EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Tom Brady tied a season record for touchdown passes and Randy Moss for touchdown catches when the two combined on a 4-yard touchdown on the first play of the second quarter against the New York Giants on Saturday night.
It also gave New England a record for most points by a team in a season - 561.
The play gave Brady 49 TD passes for the season, tying Peyton Manning's 2004 record. Moss now has 22 catches, tying Jerry Rice, who did it in 12 games during a strike-marred 1987 season.
The play gave the Patriots a 10-7 lead over the Giants and 561 points for the season. The old mark was 556 by the 1998 Vikings.
On the TD pass, Brady turned to his right and threw the ball high to the right corner of the end zone to Moss, who jumped over the Giants' Aaron Ross to bring it in.
