Word of Muth

Going into the season, a lot of the NFL world was asking the same question: how are the Patriots going to use Cam Newton's legs? Well, the question isn't so much how, it's how much. New England ran their quarterback 15 times on Sunday (including one kneeldown), and used just about every quarterback run scheme seen in college or the pros. We don't have time to cover every type of scheme the Pats ran Newton in, but we can take a look at the highlights and how the quarterback and New England's offensive line paved the way for a big day on the ground and a win.
