Two carries, two fumbles for Denver RB Hall

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Andre Hall might want to find a nice slab of bench on the Denver Broncos' sideline. Or a hole to climb into.

Hall has two rush attempts for minus-7 yards and two lost fumbles. Not exactly a stat line you want on the back of your trading card.

The New England Patriots turned both fumbles into field goals. Stephen Gostkowski has made kicks of 31 and 40 yards to give them a 6-0 lead late in the first quarter.

Hall, a second-year pro out of South Florida, came into the game when starting running back Michael Pittman suffered a minor injury that briefly sidelined him on the opening drive. The Broncos had converted three third downs and driven to the Patriots' 32-yard line when Hall lost his handle.

Hall fumbled again on the fourth play of their second drive. The ball was snapped from the New England 37-yard line but was recovered on the Denver 22.
