FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) _ Tom Brady and Randy Moss team up for touchdowns as if they've played together all their lives.
In a game that was a big mismatch on paper _ and on the field _ Brady threw two of his four scoring passes to his new deep threat. The New England Patriots rolled to their third straight rout, 38-7 over Buffalo on Sunday.
Moss became the first receiver in NFL history to gain at least 100 yards receiving in each of his first three games with a new team. He also has five touchdowns and finished the day with five catches for 115 yards.
Picking apart a defense missing three starting defensive backs, Brady also threw touchdown passes of 8 yards to Benjamin Watson and 4 yards to Jabar Gaffney as the Patriots outgained the Bills 485-185 yards.
All of them came after the Bills lost another key player. Rookie linebacker Paul Posluszny, a second-round draft pick from Penn State, broke his left forearm with 11 minutes left in the half. They already had lost quarterback J.P. Losman to a knee injury when he was sacked and lost a fumble on his third play.
With Posluszny and Losman gone from an already weakened team, the Patriots rolled to their third 3-0 start in six years.
A rare bright spot for the Bills was rookie Marshawn Lynch. He scored their only touchdown, and just their third of the season, on an 8-yard run as Buffalo took its only lead of the game 7-3.
