Rex Burkhead catches touchdown, blocks punt in first half against Broncos

Catching a first-quarter touchdown from Tom Brady wasn't enough for Rex Burkhead on Sunday.

The former Husker also blocked a second-quarter punt for the New England Patriots against the Denver Broncos.

Burkhead gave the Patriots a 7-0 lead early in the first quarter with a 14-yard TD reception on a crossing route. Then, with New England up 17-6, Burkhead got both arms on a punt. That set the Patriots up for a field goal, making the score 20-6.

Burkhead is the first person since 1977 to record a receiving TD and a blocked punt in the same game.
