Former Nebraska running back Rex Burkhead signed with the New England Patriots this summer, and he recorded his first points for his new team in Week 2.
Burkhead reeled in a 19-yard touchdown catch from Tom Brady for the first score of New England’s game against the New Orleans Saints.
This pass was 👌👌👌

Burkhead had 3 rushes for 15 yards and 1 catch for 8 yards in New England’s season-opening loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He is in his fifth NFL season, spending the previous four with the Cincinnati Bengals.
This is his fifth career touchdown. Three of them have come on the ground.
