LeGarrette Blount Hammers TD Home Against Former Team

Posted Feb 4, 2018


MINNEAPOLIS -
LeGarrette Blount wasn't brought to Philadelphia to be an explosive, big-play back.

Don't tell that to him. Especially against his former team.

Blount scored on a 21-yard run in the second quarter in the Eagles' 41-33 win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII. Quarterback Nick Foles took the ball from under center and handed off to Blount who went up the left end and had a huge hole at the second level. The Eagles utilized six offensive linemen on the play with Isaac Seumalo on the field.

In the first quarter, his 36-yard run preceded wide receiver Alshon Jeffery's touchdown.

Blount signed a one-year deal with the Eagles following the NFL Draft after a career year with New England, one in which he led the league with 18 rushing touchdowns.

On this Super Bowl Sunday, Blount paced the rushing attack with 90 yards on 14 carries featuring the longest run of the entire game.

Blount and his teammate Chris Long became the first players to win back-to-back Super Bowls with different teams since Deion Sanders.
