Will Randy Moss Break the TD Record of 22 by Jerry Rice?
We almost thought Randy Moss was washed up, or at least damaged goods, after watching him seemingly lose interest in the game while playing the last couple of seasons in Oakland. Hey, we can admit when we’re wrong.
A change of scenery has certainly done Mr. Moss well, as has playing with a quarterback who throws great long balls, and often. Moss caught 16 TD passes through New England’s first 10 games, including four against the Buffalo Bills in a 56-10 Patriots’ rout. But Philadelphia and Baltimore slowed him up a bit the next two weeks, although he bounced back with big numbers against Pittsburgh. The weather slowed the whole team up the next week vs. the Jets, though, and threatened to do the same the last two weeks.
Still, Moss grabbed two more scoring throws Sunday vs. Miami, bringing his total on the season to 21. So heading into the season finale this Saturday night at the Giants, a game the Patriots will play to win in their pursuit of perfection, Moss has an excellent shot to set a new record.
