After a slow and scoreless first quarter for the New England Patriots, the team found success on the ground, leading to a 36-20 win over the Los Vegas Raiders. With less than 30 seconds to play in the first half, the Raiders drove down the field and scored a touchdown to cut the Patriots lead to three. However, Bill Belichick’s team refocused at the break and played a well-put together final 30 minutes.
The Patriots rushed for 250 yards and found success with Rex Burkhead, who finished the game with 98 total yards and a career-high three touchdowns. Sierra Goodwill and Evan Lazar break down the win that moved New England to 2-1 on the season.
