Rex Burkhead breaks out for career day in Patriots' big win

1 month ago   |   By

FOXBORO - In the locker room after Sunday's win over the Raiders, Patriots running backs Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead allegedly traded teases about their combined rushing performance that yielded almost 200 yards.
How Michel shouldered much of the heavy lifting, ripping off the longest runs of his career, from 38 and 48 yards away, to set up Patriot touchdowns in the second half; rushes that won't be remembered because it was Burkhead who did the scoring.
In fairness to Michel, most of what the Pats accomplished during their 36-20 win Sunday won't be remembered outside of Burkhead's career...

Patriots roll Raiders 36-20 behind Rex Burkhead's three TDs

1 month ago   |   By

FOXBORO - Cam Newton played poorly, the defense allowed two passing touchdowns, couldn't stop a nose bleed on the ground and a kick was missed.
No matter. The Patriots, as they typically do on Sundays at Gillette Stadium, found a way.

Burkhead and Co. bulldozed the Raiders for 250 rushing yards, the second time they've eclipsed 200 this year. Sony Michel's 117 yards were the third-most he's recorded in a...
