Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for games played the 11th week of the 2007 season (November 18-19), the NFL announced today.
Moss played a prominent role as the Patriots defeated Buffalo 56-10 and improved to 10-0. The veteran receiver hauled in 10 receptions for 128 yards (12.8 average) and set a franchise record with a career-high four touchdown receptions. Moss’ four touchdown receptions in the first half tied an NFL record for the most touchdown catches before the half. The last NFL player to accomplish the feat was Roy Green (11/13/83). In the first quarter, Moss hauled in his 13th TD reception of the season and surpassed Stanley Morgan (12) for most touchdown receptions in a season in franchise history. Moss leads the league with 1,052 receiving yards and became the first Patriot since Troy Brown in 2001 to reach the mark.
In his 10th year from Marshall, this is Moss’ sixth Player of the Week Award and his second in back-to-back games.
