When LeGarrette Blount wants something, he’s a hard man to stop. In the third quarter of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, Blount wanted to score a touchdown.
He was eventually denied, but it took took more than half of the Pittsburgh Steelers defense to drop the New England Patriots running back.

Blount didn’t score on that play, but he didn’t have to wait long.
On the following play, Blount finished what he started, punching the ball in to give New England a 27-9 lead. The Patriots now lead 33-9 late in the third.
