LeGarrette Blount Total Rushing Yards: Under 26.5
Only once in his last five games did Blount rush over 26.5 yards and that came in Week 17 when the Eagles pulled many of their starters early in a meaningless game against the Cowboys. He rushed for just 19 yards against the Falcons in the Divisional Round and mustered only 21 yards two weeks ago against the Vikings in the NFC Championship.
LeGarrette Blount Total Rushing Attempts: Under 7.5
Based on his recent usage, the under should be a good play here, too. Granted, the Eagles will try to run at the New England defense because the Patriots have struggled defending the run this season. Still, if you look at Blount's recent usage he has received eight or more carries only twice in his last five games. He finished with nine carries against Dallas in Week 17 and nine carries against Atlanta in the Divisional Round. In those other three games, Blount carried the ball seven, five and six times, respecitvely.
LeGarrette Blount Longest Rush from Scrimmage: Under 9.5
Blount had one run of 11 yards versus the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game but that was the only time in five games that he rushed for over 10 yards on a single carry. His other longs were seven (vs. Giants), six (vs. Raiders), nine (vs. Cowboys) and eight (vs.) Atlanta.
