Brady throws five second-quarter TD passes

In snowy New England conditions, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw five second-quarter touchdown passes against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. It was one short of the number he had totaled in his team’s first five games and the most by any quarterback in one quarter since 1950.

The Patriots took a 45-0 lead into halftime against the Titans. The 45 points is tied for the third-most points ever scored in a half by an NFL team. The Green Bay Packers scored 49 points in a half against Tampa Bay on Oct. 2, 1983, and the Buffalo Bills scored 48 against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 18, 1966. Four other teams scored 45 points in a half.

Besides the five touchdown passes, Brady was 24-of-28 for 345 yards and no interceptions before halftime. The Patriots’ first drive of the second half ended, predictably, with another Brady touchdown pass, this one going for 9 yards to Randy Moss.
