8-year vet Rex Burkhead is having himself a typical Burkhead workman-like day for the New England Patriots, including crowd surfing his way into the end zone on a second-quarter touchdown pass from Cam Newton. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that a gritty, do-whatever-it takes Burkhead would go airborne and ride the wave in for six.
As I type, Rex has 4 rushes for 33 yards and a touchdown to go with his 5 catches for 32 yards and this receiving touchdown. The Patriots lead the Raiders 20-10.
This is how a sixth-round draft pick survives in the NFL for eight years, including four with Belichick. You catch the ball and give 110%.
