FOXBORO, MA – LeGarrette Blount rushed for 166 yards and four touchdowns as the New England Patriots used a dominating ground game to advance to the AFC Championship Game for a third consecutive year in a 43-22 win over Indianapolis.
The Patriots rushed over the Colts to the tune of 234 yards on 46 carries – an average of 5.1 yards per run. Stevan Ridley added a pair of touchdown runs as New England moved on to face the winner of Sunday’s San Diego-Denver tilt. If the Chargers win, New England will host next Sunday. If the Broncos get a victory, it’ll be a trip to Denver next weekend.
Andrew Luck was intercepted four times by the Patriots.
Ian Eagle and Trent Green called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
