Patriots' Morris trampling Broncos

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots running back Sammy Morris is well on his way to a career day.

With 7:34 left in the first half against the Denver Broncos at Gillette Stadium, he has 11 carries for 106 yards and a touchdown. Thanks to Morris, the Patriots are up 13-0.

The best game of Morris' career came as a Miami Dolphin in December 2006 against the Patriots. He ran a career-high 25 times for a career-high 123 yards.

Unless Morris gets thrown for some WWE-style losses, he will finish the game with more than 100 yards for the third time in four games. He came into this season with a single 100-yard game on his resume.

Morris, 31, has been getting a majority of the carries because of injuries to Laurence Maroney and LaMont Jordan.
