Doing his job

The New England Patriots' leading rusher in Monday's win over the Buffalo Bills was Cordarrelle Patterson, a wide receiver.

In a game the Pats won by 19 points, they ran the ball just 25 times (including Tom Brady's 8-yard lope) for 75 yards. Running back James White had just eight carries for 15 yards and Kenjon Barner earned two totes for four.

Coach Bill Belichick noted on WEEI Radio in Boston on Tuesday that the position is a concern for New England.

Rookie running back Sony Michel missed last week's game with a knee injury. The pounding tailback, however, avoided a major injury and is considered week-to-week.

As long as they have Brady's arm, they'll be fine. The run game is just a way for Belichick to make Tom's life a little easier.
