The Eagles must feed RB Miles Sanders vs. Browns
22 November 2020 Eagles News
We got ourselves a dog fight today in Cleveland and for the Philadelphia Eagles, they have the perfect ammo and they might not even realize it.
Although the Browns have the seventh best run defense in the league, they haven’t faced too many offensive lines like the Eagles and too many running backs like Miles Sanders.
Only one other running back in the league averages more yards per touch and that’s New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara.
Last week, although he wasn’t used too frequently, Sanders had a big impact.
Here’s how he graded.
It’s going to be a sloppy football game today in Cleveland. It’s time to use the run and stick with the run. Last week, Sanders carried the ball just 15 times but had 85 yards. Every time he touches the ball, something can happen.
And, that’s his best attribute. He’s a home run hitter; he’ll keep coming at you until he finally breaks a long run. With an Eagles offense as stagnant as it is, you’d think they’d feed Sanders more.
Today, Sanders has to get a minimum of 22 touches. You can even use him in the screen game too. The key to winning this game today and moving to 4-5-1 is Miles Sanders. The Eagles must feed him.
