Repeat after me, there's no such thing as a Sports Illustrated cover jinx.

LeGarrette Blount forced his way into the record book Saturday night and now he's on the cover of this week's SI.

Against the Colts on Saturday, Blount set a team record -- regular season and postseason -- with his fourth rushing touchdown of the game. The fourth touchdown came on a 73-yard run in the fourth quarter, the second-longest TD run in Patriots playoff history.

He also tied former Patriots running back Curtis Martin for rushing yards in a playoff game with 166.

Blount had 772 rushing yards on 153 carries, and scored seven touchdowns in his first year in New England.
