Trivia: Patriot games

   Despite their success this decade, the New England Patriots have actually been on Monday Night Football fewer times than the Buffalo Bills overall. New England played its 36th MNF game against Denver Monday, one less than the Bills, who host Cleveland next month.

  The Pats are just 15-21 all-time on Mondays and won just one of their first eight appearances. The lone victory in that span came in 1976, a 41-7 whipping of the Jets. New England gained 330 yards on the ground and all four of the Patriots' leading rushers that season scored a rushing touchdown in that game.

   Today's question is: Which Patriot led the team in rushing touchdowns that season?

   A) Steve Grogan B) Andy Johnson C) Don Calhoun D) Sam Cunningham

   Talk about it in the comment section below and look for the answer in the On The Web section of the print edition of The News On Tuesday, Oct. 21.
