Damien Harris rushing up the NFL ranks


Thirteen weeks of NFL action are in the books and statistical trends have taken hold across the league. As such, WEEI.com checks in each week to see how the Patriots (9-4) are doing statistically in a variety of areas, both on a team level and as individuals.

Pats stats analysis: Damien Harris only ran 10 times in Buffalo before leaving with a hamstring injury, but he did enough to move up the NFL’s rushing ranks. Thanks to his 100-yard effort and 64-yard TD, Harris is now 11th in the NFL in rushing yards, 14th in yards-per-carry and 5th in rushing scores. … As a team the Patriots remain one of the NFL’s top squads in terms of points, leading the NFL in points allowed, ranking No. 2 in point differential and 8th in points scored. … Nick Folk is in having a career year. The veteran kicker nailed two more field goals in the wind in Buffalo, extending his NFL lead in field goal attempts, field goals made and points. … Matt Judon is pretty much good for a sack every time he takes the field at this point. Judon had one sack of Josh Allen in Buffalo, the sixth straight game in which he’s recorded a sack. The free agent addition is now No. 3 in the NFL with 12.5 sacks on the year.
