Operating as the Patriots' clear lead back, Shane Vereen rushed 12 times for 47 yards in New England's Week 7 win over the Jets, adding five catches for 71 yards and two touchdowns.
Vereen's 17 touches were 14 more than Jonas Gray and Brandon Bolden combined. He notched a four-yard rush on New England's first play from scrimmage, and got free for a 49-yard touchdown reception just three plays later. Vereen streaked down the sideline, schooling Antonio Allen to get himself wide open. Vereen's second score was a three-yard grab where he ran circles around Jets LB Demario Davis in the end zone. Most encouragingly, it was Vereen, and not New England's "big back" duo, who was called on to help kill the clock in the fourth quarter. As we've learned the hard way from coach Bill Belichick, there's no way to count on that kind of usage going forward, but Vereen will be a top 15-16 option for Week 8 when the Pats host the Bears.
