With Stevan Ridley inactive, Blount received the majority of the touches out of the backfield for the Patriots on Sunday. Blount rushed 12 times for 44 yards and a touchdown in the 34-31 triumph over the Houston Texans.
Blount did cede touches to Shane Vereen, as the latter carried the ball 10 times for 38 yards, though figured more prominently in the passing game. Still, Ridley's fumbling problems could open the door for Blount in the New England offense, as long as the former Oregon Duck can hold onto the ball as well.
