With a running clock, the New England Patriots had 15 seconds to get their offensive unit off the field, and get the field goal unit on the field to make a 28-yard field goal. At the end of the second quarter against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2, Tom Brady rushed on a third and 9 with less than 30 seconds left in the half. By the time Brady hit the turf, the game clock read about 16 seconds. The Patriots had no timeouts, so Brady popped up and immediately signaled for offensive players to get off the field for the field goal unit. CBS color commentator Tony Romo speculated that Brady alerted the Patriots offensive players in the huddle that they needed to get off the field as quickly as possible

The warning signs were all there when the Eagles signed LeGarrette Blount in May. Yet, even those of us who were skeptical of the move couldn't necessarily have predicted Blount would go without a carry as early as Week 2. Eagles coach Doug Pederson had his reasons for withholding the ball from Blount in Kansas City on Sunday. Although, after Blount rushed 299 times for 1,161 yards and an NFL-best 18 touchdowns with the Patriots in 2016, some folks simply aren't going to buy the latter explanation.
