* Patrick Pass’s 6-yard touchdown run was his first career TD by way of the rush. The six-year veteran had one prior career TD, a 23-yard catch in the 2001 season.
* Pass’s rushing score was the first rushing TD scored by a Patriots player other than Corey Dillon this season.
* Daniel Graham’s 45-yard touchdown catch wasn’t a career high. His career high reception is 48 yards, which came in the 2004 season at Kansas City.
* Rookie safety James Sanders is active, playing his first career game for the Patriots.
* Today’s referee, Terry McAulay, was also the referee in the Patriots’ victory over the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX.
