Running back LeGarrette Blount rushed for 148 yards and three touchdowns Sunday evening to easily power the New England Patriots to a 45-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship game to advance to the Super Bowl where they’ll face the Seattle Seahawks.
Blount, who was waived by the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier in the season after he walked off the field prior to the Monday night game ending against the Tennessee Titans, carried the football 30 times against the Colts in the win.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also had a good showing against the Colts as he completed 23-of-35 passes for 226 yards and three touchdowns. He’ll now be looking to win his fourth championship in Arizona in two weeks.
Colts quarterback Andrew Luck played poorly in the loss as he only completed 12 of the 33 passes attempted in the game for 126 yards. He was intercepted twice in the game and his receivers didn’t help his cause as they dropped several passes in the game.
Colts veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne failed to record a reception Sunday evening in what might very well have been the final game of his long career.
Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman led all pass catchers in the game as he hauled in nine catches against the Colts for 99 yards.
Super Bowl XLIX will played Sunday, February 1 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
