    Okay, admittedly this is not going to have as much as the 2007 version.

    http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/10/68138-2007-patriots-record-tracker.html

    But we should cherish the ones we do have even more.

    Week 7

    Award - QB Matt Cassel has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

    Week 3

    Franchise Record - Ellis Hobbs totaled 237 yards on six kickoff returns, setting a Patriots record for most kickoff return yardage in a game. Hobbs
    topped the previous Patriots record of 220 kickoff return yards,
    set by Kevin Faulk against the New York Jets on Dec. 22, 2002.


    Week 2

    NFL record - 21 game regular season winning streak. Breaking 18 New England, 2003-04

    Week 1


    Franchise record - Tom Brady 128 straight starts. (old record Steve Grogan 78)

    Franchise record - Tom Brady 111 regulars season starts (old record Steve Grogan 74)

    I know this is a reach but I bet the six sacks allowed on Monday night are a record for most allowed sacks in a 30+ point VICTORY.

    Probably true. I wonder where you'd ever find that stat?

    We might own the stat for the most consecutive sacks not forcing a turnover, too, if not now, soon.

    I got no idea. But I am really hoping this stat never makes the list... He is on pace to break it.

    Couple of records could be noteworthy today:

    • If Moss catches ONE pass he will join only 18 other players to break the 800 catch mark.
    • If Welker has six receptions today he will become only the 4th player (Mike Ditka, Jimmy Smith, Hines Ward) in NFL history to catch six passes in a team's first seven games of the season.
    • If we win we will be be at 13 consecutive straight regular season wins against NFC opponents. Not sure what the record for the AFC is, but we may very well hold it as NE is 25-4 in the regulars season against the NFC since 2001.

    Did any of the other 18 wear a Patriots uniform? If not, it is a franchise record.

    Good question. I'll see if I can find out. Gathered those from an article at National Football Post.

    Well, Larry Centers came to NE after catching his 800th pass, so I don't know if you'd count him or not. [BTW--I cheated, and looked at Pro-Football-Reference.com. :)]

    I keep forgetting about that site. Yeah, I guess if he didn't catch all 800 w/ NE it's a pretty dull team record. Of course, I'm often amazed at the records kept in football. Some weird ones out there.

    hmm - I wanted to edit my original post to add today's accomplishments but the edit button is gone. Anybody know why? Is there a time limit to edits? Any workarounds? Also anybody know how one applies to make a thread sticky?

    Anyhow.....

    Week 8 Pats 23 Rams 16

    Franchise Record - Least number of penalties - 0 (first time)

    NFL Record - Least number of penalties - 0 (tied)

    Franchise Record - Wes Welker became the only Patriot to 6 or more receptions in each of the first 7 games of the season.

    Wasn't there something about Harrison making it to 30 sacks/30 interceptions last Monday night...and that it was a record?

    Chris Price mentioned one worth watching in his Metro Article:

    It would be nice if this was a sticky and if GordInAGayHoodie could edit his posts so we can keep things organized.

    Ian? Pweeese?

    Did he not get an interception Monday night? If so....did he not break his own record?

    From NFLN:

    Wes Welker could join Jimmy Smith as the only two players to record at least six catches in their team's first eight games.

    Welker ranks second behind Cincinnati's T.J. Houshmanzadeh with 161 receptions since 2007

    Hobbs still leads the league in return yardage.

    NFL record--Welker becomes the first player to have nine consecutive games with 6+ receptions to open the season.

    Franchise record--that last drive (19 plays) was the longest drive, by number of plays, in Patriots history.
