    As I noted in another thread earlier this week, in this string of 6 straight AFC Championship runs the Pats have had a multi TD performance in each Divisional Win leading up to it.

    With his three TD performance Dion Lewis kept that streak going. In fact, in 4 of the 6 divisional games a player has scored 3+ TDs.

    Here's how it's gone...........

    2011 - Gronk 3 TDs
    2012 - Vereen 3 TDs
    2013 - Blount 4 TDs (Ridley 2)
    2014 - Amendola 2 TDs
    2015 - Gronk 2 TDs
    2016 - Lewis 3 TDs

    He also put the ball on the ground twice, the first gifting the Texans a TD. I'm excited by the talent and explosiveness but those fumbles cannot happen. At least for me it slightly diminished the otherwise nice performance he had tonight.

    Edelman was really the offensive player of the game though.

    Logan Ryan had a hell of a game. Defensive player of the game for me.

    I forgot how bad Lewis's fumbling issues were last season. Need to work on that.

    Yes, agreed on the fumbles. Definitely puts a damper on his hat trick.

    Lewis is definitely a game changer and a real weapon for us, but he needs to work on his ball security....can't have him put the ball on the ground in future games.

    There is a lot to like about Lewis, but Lewis has got to hang onto the ball. High and tight young man, two hands when your about to get hit.

    If I recall correctly Keyshawn Johnson had a weird trifecta in the playoffs when he rushed and caught TDs in addition to getting an interception (on a Hail Mary attempt) against the Jags.

    He is a special player. Mini gronk. So many times you think he is going to get taxkled and he picks up 5-6 yards because he is so shifty

    BUT even last year he seems to have a problem holding onto the ball. Hopefully he cleans that up this week

    Lewis is exciting! Unfortunately, suspect ball security is a killer.

    I was disappointed that James White didn't get more touches.

    I found it encouraging that during the on-field post-game interview instead of answering the question about 3 TD's he immediately spoke about cleaning up his fumbles.
    I loved his first TD when he turned on the jets to accelerate by the LB...so much quickness and speed.

    Yeah, I was surprised as well. White has been such a solid receiving back. It's interesting he wasn't seeing more snaps

    I LOVE Lewis. LOVE him, but even I'll admit that Sweet Feet White is a much better ROUTE runner.

    True, but someone who can run between tackles and catch out of the backfield is probably going to keep an opposing defense more on their toes

    No doubt! Just saying White is a better route runner that's it. Nothing more, nothing less. That move he put on McKinney was sweet.......feet white :D
