Reggie Bush had a breakout game for the Dolphins, rushing for 103 yards on 15 carries in a 20-17 loss to the Giants. It was just the second time Bush has recorded a 100-yard game in his five-year career.
It was a vindicating performance for Bush, as well as for that fantasy football owner who traded a delicious Pizza Hut pizzafor the Dolphins running back. It was the most productive day on the ground for the 2nd pick in the 2006 NFL Draft since he ran for 126 yards in Week 16 of his rookie season, also against the Giants.
Bush got to 100 yards on his first 12 carries, before the fourth quarter. The Dolphins had to abandon the run when the Giants took a late lead.
Bush has struggled this season, his first in Miami after leaving New Orleans. He entered Week 8 averaging 38.7 yards per game, and with just one game where he had more than 50 yards.
