A bit of history tonight

The New England Patriots are the first NFL team to ever score touchdowns passing, rushing, on an interception, kickoff, and on a blocked field goal. In the same game.

Yeah, baby.

UPDATE: Here's an article from 2005 looking at the emphasis and culture that Coach Belichick has built around special teams, where he exposes his starters to more fatigue and injury risk.

UPDATE: Also, Tom Brady gets 100 wins faster than any other QB in NFL history. I will concede to my favorite management consultant that a lot of those wins came off the backs of a Seymour/McGinest/Bruschi/Vrabel/Law/Harrison/etc. Belichick series of defenses.
