Michel carried the ball 14 times for 61 yards in the team's wild-card round loss to the Titans. He added two receptions for nine yards.
Michel accounted for 14 of the team's 22 carries, dominating the Patriots' backfield. While he was largely efficient with his carries, he was held out of the end zone twice near the goal line during a crucial drive just before halftime. Overall, Michel averaged only 3.7 yards per carry for the campaign, though he still found the end zone seven times and accounted for 1,006 total yards from scrimmage. However, in order to gain a bigger foothold in the offense, he'll need to improve as a pass-catcher heading into his third season as a pro.
