The New England Patriots were able to drive again, thanks to a run by LeGarrette Blount that absolutely defied reason.
Blount, who had been struggling, seemed to be tackled by Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, but he rolled over the linebacker and kept on running. The Houston defenders were stunned and weren't sure how to react, so Blount kept on rumbling down the field.
Brian Cushing? More like Brian Cushion for LaGarrette Blount to bounce off of. #AMIRIGHT pic.twitter.com/RG0XIUd19A— Joon Lee (@iamjoonlee) December 14, 2015
The Patriots were unable to capitalize with a touchdown, but kicker Stephen Gostkowski nailed a 43-yard field goal to make the score 10-3, New England leading.
