During this year’s AFC Championship Game, LeGarrette Blount carried the ball 30 times and racked up 148 yards with three touchdowns against the Colts. In the divisional round matchup between the Patriots and Colts in 2014, Blount ran for 166 yards and four touchdowns.

It’s safe to say Blount has enjoyed some success against the Colts in recent meetings. So, it can’t be all that surprising he was asked during the week if another big game was in the cards for Sunday. Among those who didn’t ask, were Blount’s friends and family. 

The final totals weren’t as high as the two mentioned playoff games, but Blount did have 89 yards rushing on 14 carries. He also scored twice, including the first receiving touchdown of his NFL career. It’s getting to the point where we should expect a good game from Blount when he faces the Colts, more often than not. His friends and family certainly do.
