The New England Patriots play to extremes – they either go too low or too high. One thing stands for sure, these guys can’t get held down for too long. The Patriots were below 13-3 in the first half of their Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions, and didn’t have nine minutes of possession against their opponents. However, they were able to break through with the help of a touchdown pass.
The interception of Ja’Whaun Bentley gave the team a ball with an excellent field position at the beginning of the second half. Quarterback Tom Brady took advantage of the play, and took his teammates into the red zone. He hit James White for a score that cut the lead down to 13-10. This touchdown pass did the trick for him.
White is one of Brady’s most favorite targets, and he’s also an important player on the Patriots’ offense this season. Julian Edelman is serving his suspension, and the New England Patriots are struggling with their receiver unit. Those guys keep getting hurt, and most of them were released.
The Patriots have trouble with the depth at receiver spot, and White was one of the very few players to save the game. The team needed him to perform as one of their main pass-catchers out of the backfield.
Things are going in a good direction, and head coach Bill Belichick isn’t disappointed in White. The receiver has 13 catches on the season and 10 carries. This was his second touchdown of the year.
White is a receiver who also plays at running back spot. This is not the regular rout to a running back, and he took a risky wheel route. He’s probably the only player on the team that Brady could’ve trusted to run the route. It worked for the Patriots, and they have their first touchdown.
