FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Reggie Bush has gone over 1,000 yards rushing for the first time in his career.
Bush, in his first season with the Miami Dolphins after five with the New Orleans Saints, reached that milestone with an 8-yard run in the first quarter of Saturday's game against the New England Patriots. That gave him 29 yards for the game and 1,002 for the season, his first as a full-time running back.
His previous season high was 581 yards in 2007.
In his last game, Bush rushed for a career-high 203 yards on 25 carries in a 30-23 win over the Buffalo Bills. He's gained at least 100 yards on the ground in each of his last three games and four times this year.
BEST OF MAXIM
Reggie Bush came to the Miami Dolphins with plenty of warning labels.
What draft pick was Reggie Bush worth?
Too small. Too fragile. Too Hollywood. Too much of a gimmick player.
Too bad none of those were completely accurate.
Of everything that happens this season I’d have to consider the emergence of Bush as the Dolphins’ featured back the most positive thing that happened in...
DAVIE — The significance of 27 more rushing yards pertained mostly to Reggie Bush.
That was until it was discovered the Dolphins could accomplish another feat if Bush reaches 1,000 yards for the first time in his career. It would also make him and Brandon Marshall the only tandem in franchise history to produce 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same season.

There were some pretty cool scenes in the Patriots 27-24 win over the Dolphins yesterday. While you decompress from a nice Christmas meal, why not check them out? Below, we got a sweet shot of Dolphins RB Reggie Bush hurdling CB Kyle Arrington (where did his head go?) and another of WR Deion Branch high-fiving Santa Claus.

Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots (Spread: New England -10.5)
I really like the Patriots to win this game, which should seem obvious since they destroyed Denver last week. But that win was a bit of a fluke – Denver had a ton of turnovers which ruined their otherwise well played first half...
Here lies the grand opportunity to make this game close, if not win it altogether. The only way Miami wins is to keep Tom Brady on his sideline. The only way to do that is for Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas to perform against New England’s inconsistent run defense (4.6 yards per carry allowed) the way they performed against Buffalo’s terrible run defense (5.1 yards per carry...
Well we have made it to week 16 and the 11-3, AFC East champion New England Patriots look to better their chances of home-field advantage in the playoffs. The Patriots also will be looking to build on their current six-game winning streak when the Miami Dolphins will head into Foxborough. The 5-9 Dolphins have had an up and down year with the downs out weighing the ups.
