FOXBORO, Mass. — Dion Lewis is unfair.
The New England Patriots running back returned to action against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night after sitting out Week 7 with an abdomen injury, but you wouldn’t have known he was ever injured based on the moves he put on one opponent.
Quarterback Tom Brady pitched the ball to Lewis on a first-and-10 late in the first quarter, and Lewis promptly broke Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi’s ankles with an unbelievable spin move.
Before this season, Lewis hadn’t played a single NFL snap since 2012. But he’s been a force for the Patriots so far, racking up 201 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns to go with 256 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown.
