NFL gives Gray 2 more yards for total of 201
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Jonas Gray has been given 2 more yards rushing by a scoring change that makes him the third New England Patriots player with more than 200 in a game.
The change by the NFL brings his total to 201 in the fourth game of his career, a 42-20 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night.
With 10 1/2 minutes left, Gray originally was given a 2-yard loss. But the NFL ruled that a facemask penalty enforced from the line of scrimmage wiped out the play.
That left Gray with 37 carries for 201 yards, rather than 38 for 199, and the Patriots with 44 rushes for 246 yards rather than 45 for 244.
The top two single-game rushing performances in Patriots history are 212 yards by Tony Collins against the New York Jets in 1983 and 208 by Jim Nance against the Oakland Raiders in 1966.
