His collection quadrupled Sunday with three first-half touchdowns in the Lions' 31-14 victory over the Jaguars.
His performance caps off one heck of a week for Leshoure, who celebrated the birth of his first child - Mikel Leshoure Jr. - just four days ago.
"It's a blessing to have a healthy son," he said after the game Sunday. "Ten fingers, 10 toes and he was good.
"My whole thing: this game was for him. I went out there and my O-line helped me out and we got it done."
Leshoure gave that first touchdown ball from the Titans game to his mother Jaqueline. He said the first touchdown ball from this game will go to his son. The other two … "I'm not sure yet."
Leshoure debuted with 100 yards and a touchdown in that Titans game back in September, but hadn't reached 100 yards or scored a touchdown since.
He broke out in a big way with scoring plays of seven, one and eight yards against Jacksonville.
"I thought we did a good job of adjusting to what they did," Lions head coach Jim Schwartz of the run game.
"I thought (offensive coordinator) Scott Linehan did a good job in the game of adjusting the way we were running the ball to more cutbacks and bounce out type plays.
"Offensive line blocked well, but I think our running backs ran very well. They ran through contact. They were running with power and they were running through tackles. I think that was probably the biggest thing for us."
It's the first time the Lions have rushed for four touchdowns in a game in seven years (at Baltimore in 2005).
When the Lions can rush for 149 yards and get their play-action game going, they are one of the best offenses in football.
Leshoure proved he can carry the load in Tennessee. He proved he can finish drives in Jackonville.
If he puts them both together the rest of the way, the Lions will be in business.
