This weeks #MVPatriot in the 30-6 win over the Dallas Cowboys was running back Dion Lewis.
Great team win #patsnation— Dion Lewis (@DionLewisRB) October 12, 2015
Fresh off signing a two-year contract extension Lewis ran for 34 yards on 6 carries and caught 8 passes for 59 yards and a touchdown.
Because when @DionLewisRB makes a one-handed catch, jukes & then ducks under a defender, you have to watch it again: http://t.co/xJ4pr2k0S8— New England Patriots (@Patriots) October 12, 2015
He has filled Shane Vereen's role and then some this season and has given Tom Brady a solid go-to-guy in the backfield.
Dion Lewis might be the best running back in the history of football— Feitelberg (@FeitsBarstool) October 11, 2015
Those men have families, Dion Lewis.— Phil Perry (@PhilAPerry) October 11, 2015
LeGarrette Blount will still have his days as the bruiser, but Lewis has taken claim as the lead back for New England. Also, the Colts cut Dion Lewis, so we may be seeing him again as the MVPatriot very soon.
