While Rex Burkhead had only 36 rushing yards against the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football, the New England Patriots running back had a big game. He also had three receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots win.

Burkhead was in the game for 36 snaps, but had only 13 carries. He started his night by beating Broncos corner Dorian Stewart on a slant route for a 14-yard touchdown.

Not to be outdone, Burkhead also came up huge on special teams, as he blocked a Riley Dixon punt in the second quarter.

Burkhead, who signed with the team in the off-season, is expected to compete with Dion Lewis for playing time now that Mike Gillislee, who also signed with the team in the off-season, has fallen out of favor in the backfield rotation. Burkhead, even after Sunday night’s performance, should be able to be an option for the team in the final weeks of the season, barring an injuries.
