Dion Lewis built on the momentum from last week's win over the Jets, in which he played a season-high 29 offensive snaps, by starting over Mike Gillislee and finishing with 76 yards on 13 carries, with a long run of 25 yards.
"It's good to get an explosive run in there," coach Bill Belichick said. "When you can get a 20-yard run or a 15-yard run, that helps the running game a lot more than than seven 3-yarders. It's good to have a couple of those."

White was still involved as was Burkhead who played for the first time since Week 2. But once again it was Lewis who led the way in carries.
