Week 3 vs Houston: 24 carries, 105 yards, 2 TD
Good for 1st in the NFL in rushing yards, yards per game and tied for 1st in touchdowns. Decent month for a guy many Patriot fans wondered would even make the team.
The one they call blount force trauma has seriously picked up his game the first three games of the season. Gotta give that O-line some love as well. As a former linemen I know nothing is possible without a solid offensive line. The Patriots inability to establish any sort of a run game was ultimately what led to their demise in 2015, so to see this to start off the 2016 campaign is very encouraging. I love Brady but you gotta be able to run the ball in the playoffs.
With the revolving door at QB between injuries and suspensions LG stepped up to the plate and preceded to just pound the rock on some very solid defenses. Grown ass man football. 3 yard and a cloud of dust football. Brissett statically may have picked up the win against the Texans, but it was due in large part to LG's 105 yards and two trips to touchdown land.
Nobody is ever going to get LeGarrette Blount confused with Jamaal Charles, he's a power back. He just wears defenses down. You're not going to be able to tackle him after a while. You may keep in check but then before you know it he's gonna take you to the house on a long run like he did against the Texans last Thursday.
But don't let the big man fool you...He's got some ups as well!!
Congratulations to LeGarrette on his AFC Player of the Month award. Don't be shocked if Bill doesn't dress him this week just to keep him in check. Never know what kind of head games that man is going to pull.
Yes I'm kidding, but at the same time you really never know with this team.
I could get really used to this though. Party like it's 1776 (except with freedom)
