FOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts (Reuters) - Quarterback Tom Brady passed for five touchdowns in the second quarter as the New England Patriots crushed the winless Tennessee Titans 59-0 in the snow on Sunday.

Brady, who had a career-equaling best six touchdown passes for the game, connected twice with Randy Moss and Wes Welker and once with Kevin Faulk in the second quarter while building a 45-0 halftime lead.

Moss caught a third TD pass in the third quarter from Brady, who passed for 380 yards.

New England (4-2) also set team records for points in a game and total offense (619).

Tennessee dropped to 0-6. Last season, they posted the NFL's best regular season record of 13-3.
