The love for Moss in New England remains strong.

One of the best parts of Tom Brady's Patriots Hall of Fame induction ceremony Wednesday night at Gillette Stadium was a standing ovation one of his former teammates received from the fans in attendance.

About an hour-and-a-half into the event at Gillette Stadium, Brady and host Mike Tirico were joined on stage by the four players who caught the most touchdown passes from the legendary quarterback -- Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, Wes Welker and Randy Moss.

Tirico asked Moss about the special 2007 season during which Brady set a record with 50 touchdown passes and Moss set a record with 23 receiving touchdowns.

Before the Hall of Fame wide receiver could finish answering the question, the fans gave Moss a lengthy standing ovation that brought him to tears.

It was a really cool moment.

Even though the 2007 campaign didn't end with a Super Bowl win, it produced some of the most memorable Patriots moments during the Brady era.

The Brady-to-Moss connection was one of the best in NFL history, and even though the star wide receiver only played a little more than three seasons in New England, he'll always be a fan favorite in this region, and deservedly so.
