Patriots running back Dion Lewis out for the season

Patriots Stay Undefeated with Blowout Win Over Washington

Dion Lewis has been a revelation this season for the New England Patriots. Like every year, Bill Belichick seems to turn to a new running back, and this season it was time for Dion Lewis. Lewis has excited fans all year long. His quickness, agility, ability to make guys miss is exhilarating, and has been a major part of the Patriots' offense. Tom Brady has been on fire all season, and although the run game has been underwhelming, Lewis has been lethal catching passes out of the backfield.

Unfortunately for the Brady and the Patriots, Lewis will no longer be apart of the best offense in football right now. After a 14 yard reception, Lewis went down clutching his knee in the 3rd quarter. It was a non-contact injury, and he was unable to support his weight coming off the field. Initial fears were confirmed Monday, and Lewis will now have a battle to be fit for next season.


LeGarrette Blount will not take up the starting role in the Patriots' backfield, and although he lacks the quality of Lewis in the passing game, his downhill running will be a weapon. On Sunday, Blount ran for 129 yards and a touchdown, and looked more than capable of taking Lewis' spot.

However capable a running back Blount may be, Lewis has been wonderful so far this season, rushing for 234 yards and adding 36 receptions and 388 yards, and will be a major loss for the New England offense.
