Without starting half back Laurence Maroney, Head Coach Bill Belichick was forced to start veteran Sammy Morris, who for the previous three games was splitting the carries with Maroney. Morris performed above expectations as he ran for 117 yards on 21 yards.
Randy Moss amounted 100 receiving yards (102) for the fourth straight game along with his 9 catches. Donte Stallworth reeled in 4 balls. Kevin Faulk and rookie Kyle Eckel both caught 3 passes.
On defense Randal Gay and Asante Samuel each intercepted Carson Palmer passes.
