LeGarrette Blount running into bigger role

FOXBOROUGH — Two runs from LeGarrette Blount during Sunday’s win in Atlanta made a positive impression on Patriots coaches. The first went for 47 yards. The second, officially, went for none. It’s hard to say which run was better.

Blount went virtually untouched on the 47-yarder, reaching the end zone and giving the Patriots two things: a 20-10 fourth-quarter lead, and their first rushing touchdown on the season. Later in the fourth quarter, Blount’s attempt to pick up a first down on third and 1 and clinch what would be a 30-23 victory was stopped just short.
