LAST MEETING: Patriots 23, Rams 16 on Oct. 26, 2008 at Gillette Stadium

This will be the sixth regular-season NFL game played in London. It is New Englands second game in London; the Pats beat the Buccaneers, 35-7, at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 25, 2009.

The Pats have also played four international exhibition games in their history: In Montreal in 1969 (lost to the Lions, 22-9); in Montreal in 1990 (lost to the Steelers, 30-14); in Toronto in 1993 (lost to the Browns, 12-9), and in Mexico City in 1998 (beat the Cowboys, 21-3).

WHAT TO LOOK FOR
With one touchdown pass against the Rams, Tom Brady will extend his streak to 40 straight games with at least one touchdown pass and continue his third-longest streak all time, behind Drew Brees (49-current) and Johnny Unitas (47).

Brady has 49 career 300-yard games in the regular season and needs one more to break a tie with Warren Moon (49) for seventh place all time.

Brady has two rushing touchdowns in 2012 and needs one more to tie his single-season career high of three, set in 2011.

Stephen Gostkowski (7-of-10 from 50 or more yards) needs one more 50-yard field goal to tie Adam Vinatieri (8-of-17) for most 50-yard field goals in Patriots history. Gostkowski has two 50-yarders so far in 2012 and can become the first Patriots player with three 50-yard field goals in a single season.

Wes Welker (16) needs one more 10-plus catch game to tie Jerry Rice (17) for the most 10-catch games in NFL history.

Welker (8,184) needs 78 yards to move past Irving Fryar (8,184) for fourth place on the Patriots all-time all-purpose yards list, behind Kevin Faulk (12,349), Stanley Morgan (11,468) and Troy Brown (11,053).

The Patriots have gained at least 350 total yards in 16 consecutive games, tying the 1999-2000 St. Louis Rams for the NFL record for consecutive 350-yard games. They will break the tie and hold the record alone if they gain 350 or more yards Sunday.
