Week 7: at Pittsburgh Steelers
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. LeGarrette Blount (13/50/1 rushing with two targets for 2/20/0 receiving) and James White (7/19/0 rushing with nine targets for 8/47/2) are making up quite a powerful tandem now that Tom Brady is under center scaring defenses back off the line of scrimmage. In the two games since Brady returned, Whit has handled 12/45/0 rushing and 15 targets for 12/110/2, while Blount has seen 31 rushes for 87 yarsd, two TDs and two targets for 2/20/0 receiving. The word from head coach Bill Belichick is that Dion Lewis isn't quite ready to return just yet, so look for Blount and White to continue their partnership for a few more weeks. The Dolphins ran over the Steelers last weekend with 36/222/3 rushing to their credit; up until last week the Steelers averaged 77 rushing yards allowed per game - now they average 101.2 with six rushing scores given out to date. Two weeks ago the Jets were held to 17/72/0 rushing - the Miami game looks like an outlier right now rather than the start of a trend. We'll see if Pittsburgh can pull themselves together at Heinz Field. Blount and White have a neutral matchup here against a usually-capable defensive front that is reeling after a bad outing in Miami.

2016 Week 4 vs BUF (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
The notable play of Brandon Bolden's day was a horrible dropped would-be touchdown. Bolden is a special teams ace, but is a liability on offense. He shouldn't have much of a role going forward.
