The New England Patriots are good. They are on pace to break the NFL record for most points in a season. By around 100 points (approaching 20%).

Their quarterback is on pace to break the NFL record for most touchdown passes in a season. By around 10 touchdowns (also approaching 20%).

Randy Moss is on pace to catch 25 touchdown passes for the year, which would break Jerry Rice's all time record of 22.

The Patriots are undefeated after ten games, and their remaining 6 games include only two in which the opposing team has even the slightest chance of stopping the juggernaut (Pittsburgh and New York, both at 7-3).

Last night the Patriots scored touchdowns on their first 7 possessions. They did not punt or otherwise fail to score a touchdown until 3:56 of the fourth quarter with their backup quarterback in the game. Moss caught 4 touchdown passes in the first half.

This team is unstoppable. This year the rest of the NFL is merely a sideshow.
