LeGarrette Blount, perhaps acutely aware of the NFL's reputation as the ultimate "What have you done for me lately?" league, couldn't have picked a better spot this season to have a career-best rushing performance.
Blount bulled his way through the Buffalo Bills' defense in Week 17, racking up 189 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries. He also threw in kickoff returns of 83 and 62 yards, flashing some excellent speed that belies his 250-pound frame.
The Patriots won 34-20 and clinched the second seed in the AFC. The Bills were left with nothing but pain from a losing season and some serious Blount force trauma.
Here are five takeaways from Blount's bruising Week 17 performance.
