Patriots Dedicate Win vs. Raiders to James White After Father's Death

The New England Patriots were playing for more than just a win during Sunday's 36-20 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders.

As Mike Reiss of ESPN noted, many players and head coach Bill Belichick said the team was thinking about running back James White during the game. Belichick mentioned White during the first part of his postgame comments.

White's father, Tyrone, died in a Sept. 20 car crash that also left his mother, Lisa, injured.

The running back did not play in Sunday's game or last week's contest against the Seattle Seahawks.
