As such, Sports Illustrated chose New England running back
SI used the cover words "Blount Force Drama" as a bit of a spin on the "Blount Force Trauma" headlines that have been making the rounds of late. Heck, Blount himself is selling Blount Force Trauma t-shirts to capitalize on his new-found fame and success as the Patriots are on the cusp of another Super Bowl.
The only question is whether people still believe in the SI cover jinx? Because the Patriots certainly will need Blount -- who has run for 431 yards in the last three games and 355 in the last two -- to get things rolling in the Rocky Mountains in this Sunday afternoon's AFC Championship Game in Denver.
Jinx? What Jinx? Blount's on such a roll right now he will probably run over, around and away from the SI jinx.
