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.
