Hey everyone … after out appearance on 890 ESPN across the street at Auto East, we’re in our seat (No. 203) in the Gillette Stadium press box ready to blog our way through the Patriots-Bills game. It’s a great day for football, with temps expected in the 80s. Precious few national media are here, other than USA Today and NBC Sports. There is a credential for the Toronto Sun, as well as one for the New York Jets.
The Patriots are wearing their silver jerseys today — the sixth time the team has worn them since they were introduced in 2003. New England has compiled a 4-1 record while wearing silver, with the last time coming in a Dec. 17, 2006 40-7 win over Houston.
Courtesy of the New England PR staff, here are a few things to look for today:
•Randy Moss needs 12 more receiving yards to reach 11,000 for his career and become the 19th player in NFL history to reach 11,000 receiving yards.
•In addition, Moss needs 7 receptions to reach 700 for his career and become the 26th player in NFL history to catch 700 passes.
•Junor Seau is slated to play in his 244th career game today and pass Bill Romanowski for second-highest games played by any linebacker in NFL history. (Clay Matthews owns the record with 278 career games.)
