Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots are not having any trouble on the ground against the Denver Broncos.

Not even three minutes into the second quarter, Sammy Morris has 66 yards, mostly running left behind Pro Bowlers Dan Koppen and Matt Light.

And quarterback Matt Cassel has been sacked three times for 17 yards.

Cassel has been sacked 22 times (and counting) this season. Tom Brady was sacked 21 times all last year.
