Patriots four-headed backfield finally comes to life

FOXBORO — The backfield by committee worked just the way the Patriots had hoped from the outset.

They combined to rush for 157 of a season-high 162 yards, 54 of those coming in the fourth quarter as they effectively kept the ball away from the visitors.
