Patriots Set Franchise Record with Four 100+ Yard Players

New, comments

I quickly ran through the numbers- and it seems as if the New England Patriots have set a franchise record for more players recording 100+ yards from scrimmage in a single game.

The New England Patriots showed resilience (I walked away in disgust for a bit when they were down 21-7) and were able to pull through in historic fashion.

Brandon Bolden - 17 touches, 148 yards, 1 TD

Wes Welker - 9 touches, 129 yards

Stevan Ridley - 22 touches, 106 yards, 2 TDs

Rob Gronkowski - 5 touches, 104 yards, 1 TD

Four players recorded over 100 yards for the Patriots. Four.

The last time the New England Patriots had 3+ players rack up 100+ yards from scrimmage was the 59-0 romp in the snow against the Tennessee Titans in October of 2009.

The last time they had four? Never (as far as I can tell).

Never before, in the regular season or the playoffs, have four New England Patriots notched 100+ yards from scrimmage in the same game. Well, this was one heck of a game to do so.

Congratulations to the Patriots for pulling out a win and for setting a team record.
