No Patriot had ever run for four touchdowns in the first two games of the season, let alone his New England career. Gillislee did that in six quarters. New England may miss LeGarrette Blount’s 250-pound frame on fourth-and-1 situations, but the former Bill is doing an admirable job of replacing him at the goal line.
ANd it was apparent when he talked to the press, telling reporters I didn’t sign up for nine snaps. He won’t be happy with Sunday’s performance either. The future Hall of Famer gained only 26 yards on eight carries as his team lost its second straight.

Clowney took the ball down to the 20-yard line, and the Texans soon got their first points of the game with a field goal.
Unfortunately for Ross, he wasn’t able to get a second chance at glory like Kareem Hunt did last week.

The Falcons were less than sharp in their season opener, but they did enough to eke out a 23-17 win over the Chicago Bears on the road. Matt Ryan, coming off an MVP campaign, threw for 321 yards and a touchdown in the victory. The big highlight was tight end Austin Hooper laying down a mean stiff-arm during an 88-yard touchdown catch.
The Packers are coming off a gritty 17-9 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Aaron Rodgers got all he could handle against the Legion of Boom, but the Packers’ defense stepped up to shut down Russell Wilson and Seattle’s running game. That defense will have another tough test against the Falcons, who smoked them for 493 total net yards in the 44-21 NFC Championship loss.
It should be an electric atmosphere in the Falcons’ new home, with two teams looking to build off 1-0 starts and get back into the postseason. It would not be surprising at all if they meet in January once again.
