Blake Swihart’s Inside-The-Park Home Run Comes At Crucial Point For Red Sox (Video)

Dion Lewis Again Proves He Deserves Patriots’ Third-Down Back Role

I’ll admit to being skeptical when I heard the New England Patriots were high on Dion Lewis, entering the 2015 offseason. If they were so high on him, why didn’t they sign the undersized running back after he worked out in November of last year? And if they liked him so much, why did he go unsigned from Sept. 16, when he was cut by the Indianapolis Colts, to Dec. 31, when the...
