LeGarrette Blount has added to his impressive postseason record and the Eagles are up 15-3 on the Patriots as a result.

Blount sprinted 21 yards for a touchdown with 8:48 left in the second quarter for the 11th postseason touchdown of his career. That’s the most of any player not already in the Hall of Fame and it is his first against the Patriots, who employed Blount for several years.

The Eagles missed out on a chance to add to their lead when a pass to Alshon Jeffery two-point try fell incomplete. Jeffery caught the Eagles’ first touchdown of the game and set up Blount’s score with another athletic grab near the sideline for a 22-yard gain.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles also hit tight end Zach Ertz for a 19-yard gain to convert a third down early in the drive and is now 10-of-16 for 143 yards on the day.

  1. Eagles playing relaxed and with confidence.
    Patriots are making critical mistakes which if not corrected will end up costing them the game.

  2. That’s a 14 point turnaround if the Eagles WR holds onto that catch at the 10. What is with only using 1 hand to attempt a catch, I don’t get it.

  3. Philly scores !!!! Zebras did everything they could do to keep Philly to a field goal attempt.

    Because watching Richard Sherman most of the time, you don’t realize when the receiver is being interfered with, but you do realize when it’s not called.

    Glad to clear it up for you.

  5. Ever notice how sportsbro is the 1rst to pounce on any post about the Pats where he can post his bile? Now that’s a person with no life. c’mon ‘bro; ready, set, GOOOOO…. loser.
