1st quarter notes from Foxborough
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- While the Miami Dolphins have surrendered their instamatic 10-0 lead in Kansas City, the New England Patriots continue to dominate the Arizona Cardinals.
A few notes from the first quarter, with thanks to ESPN researcher Mark Simon:
- The Cardinals have allowed at least 21 points in the first quarter three times in their past four games.
- LaMont Jordan scored the Patriots' first two touchdowns. It's his fourth career multi-TD game, but his first since Week 12 in 2005. He never before had scored two in the same quarter.
- Kevin Faulk had the other Patriots touchdown in the first quarter on a 15-yard catch and run. He has 14 career receiving touchdowns and 14 career rushing touchdowns.
- The Patriots haven't lost a game in which Faulk has scored a touchdown since December 20, 2004. They're 7-0 in that span.
