Many thought Sony Michel had hard time coping with the game, but the running back is doing an excellent job in the Week 4 contest.
At the 13:43 mark in the fourth quarter, Sony Michel got to the end zone for the first time in his football career.
Michel took a pass from Tom Brady, and managed to rush for 10-yards and brought the Patriots even higher, 38-0.
In this game, the rookie rushed 25 times for 112 yards and a score. If by any chance you haven’t realized, Michel is the first Patriots rookie to rush for 100 yards since Brandon Bolden’s brilliance on this day six years ago. Bolden is having his return to Foxboro on Sunday for the first time since inking a deal with the Miami Dolphins.
The New England Patriots drafted Michel in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Georgia product missed the preseason and a big portion of the training camp because he suffered a knee injury. He had fluid drained of his knee. The injury kept him away from the field in Week 1, but he sure made his debut in the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Michel was quite at the beginning of this game. He rushed for 84 yards and caught two passes for six yards. The running back was criticized after his game against the Lions, but Patriots fans will sure change their minds. Today’s game is a good one, and Michel is doing a great job on the field.
The New England Patriots are beating up the Dolphins, and they’re finally putting an end to their bad tradition. No more losses. Head coach Bill Belichick is probably happy for his guys. He was concerned about the team’s execution, but the Patriots learned their lesson. They’re winning this game!
