AFC East: rapid reaction 12
Nine weeks later, the Patriots flashed back with a high-powered passing attack in a 48-28 victory in Dolphin Stadium. The game featured six lead changes, but the Patriots outclassed their hosts.
Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel has been criticized for his inability to throw the long ball and for not being able to connect more with Randy Moss. On Sunday, they hooked up three times for touchdowns.
Cassel recorded his second straight 400-yard game, rolling up a career-high 415 passing yards. He also ran for a touchdown.
Moss had his best game of the year and looked like the receiver who could do whatever he wanted last season with Tom Brady running the offense. Moss finished with a season-high eight receptions for 125 yards.
