Tom Brady led New England on five straight touchdown drives after the Rams jumped out to an early 7-0 lead. The Patriots blew out the Rams 45-7 in the NFL’s annual game at Wembley Stadium in London.
Things started quickly for Sam Bradford and the offense as Bradford hit Chris Givens for a 50 yard touchdown giving the Rams a 7-0 lead. It was the fifth straight game that Givens has had a reception of 50 or more yards, setting a record. After that, it was all Brady.
Brady passed for 304 yards with four touchdowns, and tight end Rob Gronkowski caught eight passes for 146 yards and two scores. Brandon Lloyd also had two touchdown catches, while Stevan Ridley ran for 127 yards and a score as the Patriots find themselves leading the AFC East heading into their off week.
The Rams (3-5), who also will be off, are last in the NFC West after losing two in a row. Bradford summed up the game perfectly.
“It’s embarrassing the way we played tonight,” Bradford said. “Just embarrassing.”
