Brandon Bolden Burns Broncos On Wheel Route For 63-Yard Patriots TD (Videos)


A rash of injuries has left the New England Patriots with very few options in the passing attack. But one of those options made a huge play Sunday night.

Already leading the Denver Broncos by a touchdown early in the fourth quarter, the Patriots faced a crucial third-and-8 on their 35-yard line. That’s when quarterback Tom Brady threw an absolute dime to running back Brandon Bolden on a wheel route down the right sideline.

Bolden did the rest, breaking the tackle of another Bolden (Broncos safety Omar) to scamper for a 63-yard touchdown.

The 25-year-old followed up the impressive score with a pretty strong celebration, too.

The play was the longest of Bolden’s NFL career and his second receiving touchdown of the season, his first coming on an 18-yard catch-and-run against the Washington Redskins in Week 9.
