In today's News Blitz... New England has best record in NFL, Moss is at a loss and Green-Ellis, Tate, defense get job done.

The New England Patriots are now 6-1, the best record in the National Football League, with their 28-18 victory over the Minnesota Vikings last night during a Halloween showdown at Gillette Stadium. Read a recap of last night's win, as well as how a team, which leads the league in rookie starts and has a roster with the second-most undrafted players, has somehow made it work, on **.

Read more game recaps in the *Boston Herald* and the *Boston Globe*. ** also reviews how New England was able to make the "Moss factor" a non-issue.

Moss: the grass is always greener. Read about Vikings wide receiver, and former Patriot, Randy Moss, who may regret his move to Minnesota, on **.

Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis led New England's running game, which has suffered significant loss in Fred Taylor and Kevin Faulk (not to mention a Laurence Maroney trade to the Broncos) in its 2010 season. Green-Ellis rushed for a career-high 112 yards on 17 carries, setting a personal precedent with multiple touchdowns in the Patriots 28-18 victory over the Vikings last night.

Then there's wide receiver Brandon Tate, who had three catches and led the team in receiving yardage with 101 yards--one a second-quarter 32-yard reception off a near Viking interception to set up the Pats first score; another a third-quarter, 65-yard reception off a broken play for a touchdown. Read about Tate's stand-out performance in the *Boston Herald*.
