Sportsman of the Week Ending 1/12/2014

There were a lot of outstanding players this weekend of the NFL Division Playoffs, but this week's Sportsman of the Week put his team on his back and lifted them to a third straight AFC Championship Game.  LeGarrette Blount of the New England Patriots busted out for 166 yards and 4 TD as his team advanced to face the Denver Broncos.  After a moribund first 15 games never breaking 70 yards in a single game with only 5 TDs, he's surged for 355 yards and 6 TD in Week 17 (a key win to get the Bye) and Divisional Playoff.  His most defining run, a 73 yard dagger that put the Patriots up by 14, was the difference-making play to win the game.  LeGarrette Blount is this week's Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
