Orchard Park, NY - Patriots quarterback Tom Brady set a new NFL record Sunday for most pass attempts without an interception.

He did it on an incomplete pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski in the third quarter of New England's 34-3 rout of the Bills in Buffalo.

It was Brady's 309th consecutive attempt without an interception, passing Bernie Kosar for the all-time mark.

Brady hit Gronkowski for an eight-yard touchdown on the next play, the second time they hooked up for a score from that distance, and the Patriots went on to clinch the AFC's No. 1 seed in the playoffs.

Brady entered the game needing 17 mistake-free attempts to set the record. He went 15-of-27 for 140 yards -- extending the new mark to 319 passes without a pick.

His last interception came during a win over Baltimore on October 17.
