Boston Globe - [Full Article]

Running back Sammy Morris went down in the first quarter with a leg injury and did not return.

The absence meant RB Laurence Maroney would get his shot. Maroney rushed 16 times for 123 yards and a touchdown in the 59-0 win over the Titans.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Maroney’s success was nothing new.

“I think Laurence has run hard,’’ Belichick said. “He got a little crease and we all know once he gets out there he can run, and he did. He turned it on. He had a couple of nice runs and he runs hard.

“We had a little bit of space and once he got some momentum he’s a hard guy to bring down. We’ve all seen that before.’
