Following in the footsteps of the immortal Jake Elliott, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeGerratte Blount has been nominated for not one, but TWO NFL weekly fan vote awards thanks to his big Week 4 performance.
One of the honors Blount is up for is “FedEx Ground Player of the Week.” Blount rushed for 136 yards on a mere 16 carries (8.5 average). The big man also had a 20-yard reception.
68 of Blount’s rushing yards came on his fantastic Beast Mode run where he broke multiple tackles. According to ESPN, Blount’s 109 rush yards after contact are the most in the NFL this year and the fifth most out of any player in the last five years. Needless to say, Blount was awesome against the Chargers.
The other award Blount is up for is one of the two Elliott won last week: “Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week.” Blount helped the Eagles run out the clock to seal their win over the Chargers on Sunday. His 15-yard gain on 3rd-and-1 with 1:54 remaining officially sealed the deal.
