New England is now 15-0 with Lewis in the lineup.

It must be pointed out that nearly all of that was against some truly subpar offensive opposition, bordering on atrocious. Their victims were the 49ers, Jets (twice), Rams, Ravens, Broncos, Dolphins and Texans. Thats no murderers row of quarterbacks: Ryan Fitzpatrick (the lowest-rated full-time starter in the NFL this season) and Bryce Petty, Jared Goff, Trevor Siemian, Dolphins backup Matt Moore, and Brock Osweiler in the playoffs. Five of the eight wins came against teams in the bottom six in scoring for the season.

None of them are the Steelers, with Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown.

Also, none of that matters to the Patriots, who spent part of Wednesday explaining why theyd done so well holding teams down week after week, better than anyone in the NFL.

Putting it fairly simply: Its not about overwhelming teams with one strength. Its about adjusting to every offense they face and drilling down on stopping it, then doing it again for the next team the next week. It all reflects well on coordinator Matt Patricia and the position coaches and explains why Patricias name keeps coming up in head-coaching conversations every year.

It had been nearly nine years since the last four-homer Cheap Jerseys In US game when Mike Cameron of the Mariners clubbed four dingers against the White Sox on May 2, 2002. Fans may recall that Cameron just missed becoming the first player with five home runs in one game when he flied out to the warning track in his final at-bat.

Lewis rushed 15 times for 69 yards and caught four passes for 51 yards Cheap Jerseys MLB China in his first game. He has been uber-productive ever since.

From an individual numbers perspective, Lewis has proven to be part Kevin Faulk, part Danny Woodhead, part Steven Ridley. From a team perspective, Lewis and the Patriots are a perfect match. Literally.

Every game Lewis has played for the Patriots has resulted in victory. Including Saturday’s 34-16 win over Houston, New England is now 15-0 with Lewis in the lineup.
