Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 20 vs DEN (4 / 8 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

teven Jackson offered little in the run game, as he consistently hit walls along the defensive front. He did miss a chance to bounce outside for a potential huge gain, instead plowing into the defense on every single run. His touchdown was an easy one from 2 yards out.

2015 Week 19 vs KC (6 / 16 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)

Gameplan against the Chiefs called for almost all passes. That combined with subpar run blocking and a mediocre talent in Jackson meant the ground game got nothing going with its limited chances.

2015 Week 17 vs MIA (14 / 35 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 20 / 0 rec)

Jackson was thrown into the fire in the first half and a forgotten man in the second half, as gameplanning called for just that for some reason. Jackson ran with little elusiveness, but did show power on a few runs, converting one or two short conversions and running a short scamper in for a touchdown, bowling over a defender or two in the process. Jackson also saw a 20 yard dumpoff, one of the only decent plays on the day from the Patriots. If the Patriots line can block better, Jackson might see slightly more yards per carry.

2015 Week 16 vs NYJ (7 / 15 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Newly acquired Steven Jackson wasn't able to get much going against the Jets. He wasn't elusive at all, consistently trying to run over defenders. However, he wasn't given much room to run either.

Patriots | New England likely to add at RB (Tue Jan 26, 12:06 AM) - New England Patriots RB James White played 57 of the 83 offensive snaps in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24, and RB Brandon Bolden played 16. RB Steven Jackson rounded things out with 11 snaps. The team will also get RB Dion Lewis (knee) back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in 2016, while RB LeGarrette Blount is an impending free agent. The team might face an offseason similar to 2011 when the selected a pair of backs in the NFL Draft.

Our View: Adding more weapons to the offense is a great idea. The team just wasn't the same after Lewis was lost for the season. Blount is okay, but he's a one-dimensional back who gets banged up. Lewis looked great in 2015 before getting hurt, but the Patriots need better options available and better competition in the backfield. Look for them to add a back in the draft or through a rich free agent class.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount staying with Patriots? (Mon Jan 25, 04:50 PM) - New England Patriots impending free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount could be on his way out of New England as he enters free agency this offseason. RB Dion Lewis (knee) will return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and RB James White filled in nicely for Lewis. The Patriots also have another big back on their roster in RB Steven Jackson, putting Blount's future with New England in limbo.

Our View: We'd be shocked if Jackson was back with the Patriots next year. Blount works well with the Patriots when healthy. The team needs a power element to their rushing attack, and they may decide that Blount is the best way to go in 2016.
