Kenyan Drake made significant strides on Sunday during Miami's 35-9 victory over the Denver Broncos. He rushed for a career-high 120 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. The highlight was Drake's 42-yard run up the left sideline for a score in the second half.
When you include Drake's three receptions, he carried the football 26 times, which also was a career best.
"I think like one time in high school I ran the ball 25 times," Drake said. "But other than that, I don't think I've ever run the ball that much in my life. I could've ran it 20 more times with how the O-line was blocking, so give all the credit to them."
The story said Drake has already proven to be a home run hitter with three runs of over 40 yards this season, but the next step is consistency. Drake is also looking to overcome ball security issues and prevent negative runs, the story added.
