Patriots running backs now an embarrassment of riches
FOXBORO — After finishing last season with no semblance of a running game, the Patriots now have an embarrassment of riches in their backfield.
As we’ve seen, they can hit you with force, finesse or speed depending on the opponent and situation.
It’s a nice combination to have, especially this time of year. The Denver Broncos, who sport one of the worst run defenses in the league, might have been preparing to get banged and bruised by 1,000-yard rusher LeGarrette Blount last week, but instead they got a healthy dose of shifty Dion Lewis, who had 95 yards on 18 carries during the Pats’ 16-3 victory on Sunday.http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/patr ... _of_riches
