FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tom Brady and Stephen Gostkowksi picked up some more milestones. The New England Patriots picked up another lopsided win.
Brady threw for two touchdowns, including the 400th of his career, to help the defending Super Bowl champions run away from the Jacksonville Jaguars for a 51-17 victory on Sunday. LeGarrette Blount had three 1-yard touchdown runs, and Gostkowski delivered the extra point on all six New England TDs to run his streak to an NFL record 425 in a row.
After a summer dominated by deflated football talk, the Patriots (3-0) opened with victories over Pittsburgh and Buffalo and then proved they weren't looking past the overmatched Jaguars (1-2). Brady became the fourth quarterback in NFL history to throw for 400 touchdowns, and he added his 401st, a 13-yard pass to Keshawn Martin late in the third quarter.
By that time, it was 37-10, fans were trying to beat traffic on Route 1, and the Patriots were heading into their bye week with a perfect record.
In all, Brady completed 33 of 42 passes for 358 yards. Rob Gronkowski caught four passes for 101 yards for the Patriots. Blount ran for 78 yards. Julian Edelman caught eight passes for 85 yards. Gostkowski, who has led the NFL in points for each of the past three seasons, added three field goals.
It was the most points ever allowed by the Jaguars (1-2).
The biggest highlight for Jacksonville was a 59-yard catch and run from Blake Bortles to Allen Hurns that made it 30-10 midway through the third quarter. Jacksonville's other touchdown came on a 6-yard pass from Bortles to Clay Harbor.
Brady completed a 1-yard TD pass to Danny Amendola in the second quarter for No. 400, and added a 13-yard touchdown to Keshawn Martin in the third.
