Six rushes for 23 yards. Four receptions for 49 yards. No touchdowns.

But if you look a little closer at when his touches took place and what the outcomes were of those touches, there is one word that comes to mind. Clutch. That may not even do him justice. Absurdly clutch.

Here are the results and the down and distances for six of White’s 10 touches Sunday night, courtesy of Zack Cox of NESN]]> 5415898 Mon, 21 Jan 2019 10:30:02 EDT Patriots Wire

That’s about as good as it gets for any quarterback at any age, let alone a 41-year-old one. But this is Tom Brady. Amidst swirling doubt, Brady shut down his detractors by leading the Patriots to their finest offensive outing of the season. Although it was New England’s power running game that set the tone, Brady was sharp working off play-action throws under center, and while finding James White and others on short routes when Josh McDaniels opted to spread the offense out in shotgun formation]]> 5411615 Mon, 14 Jan 2019 15:24:01 EDT Patriots Wire

Literally. To start the 41-28 whipping, the Patriots posted a record-breaking opening drive that featured six carries for rookie back Sony Michel and five targets for James White. The tone-setting drive went for 14 plays, 83 yards and nearly half of the opening quarter.

By game’s end, the Patriots had drummed up 155 total rushing yards and four touchdowns on a 4.6 per-carry average. Michel went for 129 yards and three scores on 24 chances, while Rex Burkhead pitched in with 12 and a score on four carries. Julian Edelman led the team in receiving at 151 yards, while Tom Brady quietly cruised to a 34-of-44 line with 343 yards and one score]]> 5410973 Sun, 13 Jan 2019 17:42:01 EDT Patriots Wire
<![CDATA[Ties NFL record in win]]> White didn't receive a single carry in Sunday's 41-28 Divisional Round win over the Chargers, but he caught an NFL postseason record-tying 15 passes on 17 targets for 97 yards.

White tied a record held by a fellow receiving specialist out of the backfield -- Darren Sproles also caught 15 passes in a playoff game as a member of the Saints back in 2011. Like many of his teammates, White's no stranger to postseason success, and he's likely to make fantasy owners happy once again when the Patriots travel to Kansas City for the AFC Championship. His high volume through the air in a game which the Patriots led throughout is encouraging for White's chances of significantly contributing regardless of game flow.

<![CDATA[Melvin Gordon and James White: From college teammates to playoff enemies]]> Melvin Gordon and James White will have to put their friendship on hold as the Chargers face off against the Patriots Sunday in the AFC Divisional round. Neither will be on the field at the same time, but that doesn’t mean the two will be rooting for one another. Here’s the Patriots runner describing their friendship:

“He’s like a little brother to me,” said White, who is one year older than Gordon. “Since he stepped foot on the Wisconsin campus, we were always tight. All the running backs there were. He’s a good football player, good person. I wish him nothing but the best of luck, but I hope he doesn’t do too much on Sunday.]]> 5409487 Fri, 11 Jan 2019 15:15:01 EDT Chargers Wire
<![CDATA[Chargers' Melvin Gordon, Patriots' James White used to run in same circles in college]]> Melvin Gordon of the Chargers and James White of the New England Patriots are so close that they refer to each other as “big brother” and “little brother,” and Gordon spent much of last offseason at White’s Fort Lauderdale, Fla., home.
