Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans eat your hearts out, the guy you shipped off the New England for virtually nothing has staked his claim in this Patriots Super Bowl run in Saturday’s AFC Divisional Round game. After being a rotational back for most of the season, Blount has used his reps on Saturday to score three touchdowns and go over 100 yards rushing in what looks to be an easy Patriots win.
Just when things were getting hairy for the Patriots, Blount helped blow the game wide open with a monstrous touchdown run that saw him go mostly the length of the field without any Colts defender anywhere near him. It was reminiscent of the run he had against the Green Bay Packers while still with the Buccaneers where he stuffed the Packers defense at the line and then kicked it into high gear.
An interception and another Patriots touchdown later, and Blount’s three score day has the Patriots up 43-22 and well on their way to another AFC title game.
