ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes in leading the New England Patriots to a 34-3 rout of the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, clinching the top seed throughout the AFC playoffs.
Two of Brady's TD passes went to rookie tight end Rob Gronkowski. Alge Crumpler and Danny Woodhead also scored in helping New England extend its winning streak to seven in a row.
The Patriots forced seven turnovers to create numerous scoring chances. Brady finished 15-of-27 passing for 140 yards and set the NFL record for most attempts (319) without an interception. He topped the mark set by Bernie Kosar in the 1990 and '91 seasons.
