The Patriots set an NFL record on Sunday, recording their 17th consecutive game with at least 350 yards of offense, a run that began last year against the Giants in Week 9.

To establish the record, the Patriots had to rack up yardage against the franchise they came into the game tied with: St. Louis. The “Greatest Show on Turf” Rams had a 16-game streak of 350 yards-plus over the 1999-2000 seasons.

The Patriots could have set the mark a long time ago: their loss in Pittsburgh last October, when they had 213 yards, was the only game last year that they did not top 350 yards.

New England had 473 offensive yards on Sunday.

Here's the streak game by game:

11/6/2011 vs. Giants - 438 yards (332 passing, 106 rushing)
