The New England Patriots running game is on full force in the red zone, and it all started with a one-yard punch-in from star RB Stevan Ridley to put the score at 10-0 in favor of the Patriots against the Buffalo Bills.
You can view Ridley’s touchdown run here, as well as his even more impressive touchdown dance here. I mean, what is he doing? It’s all up to interpretation, and that’s what TD dances are all about, right? Hey, it’s better than the overused Gangnam style stuff.
Danny Woodhead is as clutch as ever, and Patriots fans need to rewatch the video of his 15-yard scamper here. Bills fans thought Fred Jackson’s screen reception on third-and-long for a first was good, but Logan Mankins outdid the Bills star here. Just look at the blocking from him, and that signifies that the star left guard is back to his best. And oh yeah, Woodhead looked really fast on that run as well.
Since I know we have some Buffalo Bills fans out there, Fred Jackson showed why he is a Pats-killer and one of the best backs in the league with this 14-yard beauty to make it 17-10 (Rob Gronkowski has since made it 24-10 with a spike/TD combo of his own).
That was some terrible tackling from Dont’a Hightower and the New England Patriots defense, but give credit where it’s due to rookie Cordy Glenn (video focuses on his blocking) and Jackson for a nice spin move and some good speed and vision.
