BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots locked up another division title last Sunday with their win over the Denver Broncos, but still have plenty to play for these last two weeks.
This week, the Pats host the Miami Dolphins with a chance to get closer to that number-one seed in the AFC.
98.5 The Sports Hub’s Scott Zolak jumped in front of the whiteboard this week to preview what me might see out of the Dolphins on Christmas Eve, especially from running back Reggie Bush.
Gresh & Zo Whiteboard: Week 16
“He’s a special guy,” linebacker Rob Ninkovich said of Bush on Tuesday. “A guy like Reggie can do a lot of different things; he can catch the ball out of the backfield, can run the ball, punt return. There are many different things he can do on the field that can hurt you.”
Zolak agrees (although he still thinks Reggie wears #25). Bush has 403 yards on the ground the last four weeks, including a 203 yards showing last Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. But other than handing off, how will they make sure Bush gets the ball?
While the Pats held Bush to just 38 yards on 11 carries back in Week 1, he also had nine receptions for 56 yards. Can New England expect more of the same Saturday at Gillette?
