FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis is back at full strength, as the team’s careful management of his return from a torn left ACL has been one of the more important developments of the second half of the regular season.
Lewis’ return highlights a most impressive statistic: The Patriots have never lost with him on the field.
“It’s great to have him,” coach Bill Belichick said Thursday morning. “He’s been a very productive player for us. The more of them you have, the better off we are.”
