    Well next week both Tom Brady and Cam Newton have the chance to make history - to be the first QBs to ever have 3x 400 yard games in a row. So who do you think will enter the record books? Vote above.

    Jason Campbell threw for 323. I'd expect Brady to throw for 400+ with the way the Pats offense has been the past two weeks. Bills held McFadden and a OAK rushing attack (which is probably better than the Pats) to 20 carries/72 yds.

    unless that game somehow unexpectedly becomes a tough low scoring game

    Voted neither, also don't care honestly. I see us rushing for 200+ before we pass for 400 against the Bills.

    Both games last season were under 300 yards passing and both were close to 200 rushing. I don't see any reason that will change, especially with their star LB playing for a different team.

    16 of 27 for 145 yards and 1 TD.....That is Brady's stat line for SB XXXVI.......

    I couldn't care less about another meaningless record....to be honest, I hope the Pats run for 200+, Brady throws for 200 yds and they control the clock....

    Not a record I really care about though. All that matters is the W.

    I guess this is like the steroid era of baseball. I can't say I enjoy having every tom dick and harry throw ridiculous amount of yards in every game, it's starting to not mean much anymore.

    I dont get while people always say that they dont care about a stat..yes, the W is the most important thing, but this is a disscussion board, why cant we just discuss whatever we want..if you dont care, why bother posting in a certian thread?

    If the Panthers were playing ANY other team than Jacksonville, I would say Brady has the best chance although I don't see it happening. But they are so both have a decent chance.

    Personally, I'm not convinced by Buffalo's recent success, and I can see the Pats getting a larger lead and thereby not having to pass as much. I think part of the reason why Tom has passed so much is that both games they've played was close enough so that each drive had some urgency to score and not just wear down the clock. Personal opinion, of course.

    This game has TRAP written all over it! But I think we will see lots more running in this one.

    I expect that Tom will get a lot of yards. Buffalo will not be able to keep up in a track meet, so I think we'll go to a dominant running game by the middle of the third and Tom will be a little short of 400.

    Generally, it's abad sign when a QB has to pass for 400 yds as it generally means they are playing catch up. I think that Cam has a shot at it, but then again, it's just as likely that he comes crashing back down to earth too.

    I'd much rather see 200 yards rushing by the Pats.

    I said "neither". Newton has to come down to earth some time, and I think the loss of Hernandez this week will have a negative effect on our passing game (hope I'm wrong). I believe Buffalo is as bad against the run as it is against the pass, so I think the Pats will turn to BJGE & Co. more this week. If I'm wrong I won't be upset! Go Pats!

    Hopefully Brady doesn't need to pass for 400 yards to come up with a win this time.

    This is like predicting the score of a game... impossible because it's so hard to predict the nature of the game. Each game takes on its own scoring pattern and its own passing yardage.(some games close down in the early part of final quarter and some take off then, for example)

    I know right now some of you are saying it's a meaningless record. But down the road, don't you think this will be talked about if it happens? When the Marino fans want to say how he is the greatest statwise, then the Brady fans can say right back - 50 tds, 3x 400 yards+ in a row. Even Marino didn't do that. Just food for discussion. ;)

    Seriously.

    It's like so many people ignore the fact that 400+ yards passing means the QB is either losing, or in the middle of a shootout.

    Also, most players on that 500-yard-game QB list? They lost the game despite throwing for 500.

    Last week Buff got SCORCHED in passing yards

    ppl say Run D is terrible 4 them. We establish the Run then TFB and us PATRIOT fans will be having lots of FUN watching the record being set by TFB for 400 yds plus x 3 games consecutively. Can you say play ACTION and screens? :) If Buffs Run D is terrible... I know for a fact their Pass D is not good at all:)

    i see the JAX game being easy for the panthers, and so they will have attained an easy lead

    but instead of holding it by running, they will have Cam go for the record

    so he will pass for over 400

    we, im not so sure about, i believe we can run pretty well against the bills....if it turns out we cant, than 400 wont be a problem

    Not true; of the 11 QBs that have passed for 500 yards, 6 have won their games.

    In fact, it's only in the last five years that you see QBs throwing for tons of yards because they're way behind: historically, 56% of 400-yard games have been wins, but, since 2006, only about 1/3 of 400-yard games have been wins.

    After watching the Bills game and the Pats game last week, I'd be mildly surprised if Brady didn't throw for 400.

    That said, I don't get why people are being negative about this. Seeing Brady set yet another passing record would be pretty cool. You don't have to choose between setting passing records over a couple-game span early in the year when NFL teams are scoring at a record pace OR having a tough team that can win Super Bowls. Yeah, I get it, Brady didn't pass for a ton of yards in 2001, but guess what? The 2001 Patriots wouldn't win the SB in 2010- the league has changed too much. Instead of complaining about how unfortunate we are to have the most prolific quarterback in the NFL, let's appreciate what we have and enjoy the quality of play that we get watch every week.

    You have a very strange definition of the word "most". Also, I wouldn't categorize either of the Pats' two wins as shootouts, and they didn't have to meaningfully come from behind (down 7 after one possession doesn't count) in either of them. A QB throwing for 500 yards means that the QB torched the opposing defense. No more, no less.

    Precisely. Beat me to it.
    I voted that TB does 400 but I'd much prefer a game managed 24-13 win, Bills finally scoring a TD with 4 minutes to go with TB going two hundred something yds through the air.

    I'd also like to see our #2 QB in the 4th QTR as Tom sits on the bench.

    I voted Neither but if had to choose I choose Newton

    Buffalo is at home and that crowd will be going wild and I think their defense will make things difficult to hear signals and performance may drop to about 250 Yards or so for Tom IMO

    As far as Cam,I doubt it, but he is playing at home and the Jags have one of the worst secondaries in the league.

    I'd say probably neither. Brady surprisingly only has 3 400+ games in his career(although he's been really close a bunch more times). So I'd say odds are against it and cam's going to cool off at some point. I say Brady goes for 225 this week and BGJE run for 125 and a pair of touchdowns and pats run for over 200.

    Both. We're no longer in the era when having a lot of passing yards means you had to come from behind. Teams are intentionally going ultra pass heavy, because that's what's winning in the league right now.
