2. RB Rhamondre Stevenson
While Damien Harris did the majority of the damage early in the game, he was removed due to a hamstring issue and Stevenson managed to have his best game in over a month. The 230-pound dynamo looked completely unstoppable against a Jaguars defense counting down the days until the offseason.
Stevenson ran for 107 yards and two touchdowns on just 19 carries. He set a new personal best for rushing yards in a game, as he benefitted from what was a very impressive showing from the offensive line against a defense full of young players getting experience.
Rhamondre Stevenson boosted the Patriots on the ground.
The former Oklahoma Sooner has run for 572 yards and five touchdowns this season, making him one of the best fourth-round picks in the entire 2021 draft. As good as Harris has been, Stevenson has been so ruthless and effective that New England has been forced to give him playing time.
Stevenson is a perfect runner for Belichick’s offense, as he has enough muscle to run between the tackles often while also possessing the necessary wiggle and speed to break off explosive runs. He should get a healthy diet of carries in the postseason if Belichick wants his offense performing at maximum efficiency.
