What playoff pressure?

Former UGA tailback Sony Michel has adapted well to the heightened intensity of the postseason, like few rookies (or veterans) in NFL history.

On Sunday afternoon, Michel aced his first-ever half of playoff action with flying colors, racking up 114 total yards (105 rushing) and three touchdowns. 

In all, Michel (138 total yards) fueled the New England Patriots' impressive 41-28 rout of the Chargers in the Divisional Playoff round.

The NFL's single-game playoff record for rushing touchdowns remains safe, at five (Ricky Watters in 1993). 

However, Michel momentarily placed the mark in jeopardy with his incredible first half, posting the second-highest tally of rushing TDs in postseason history.

Here are three separate clips, chronicling Michel's Sunday touchdowns. With the victory, New England will travel to Kansas City for next week's AFC title game.





For good measure, here's Michel's most storied run of the first half. Wow!
