Eagles running back Miles Sanders had a first-rate rookie season:
Over the first eight games of the season, he recorded 294 rushing yards on 66 attempts (4.46 yards per carry). It is a respectable figure but the sample size is small.
The Penn State product really started to differentiate himself with a larger workload down the home stretch.
He had 113 carries for 524 yards (4.64 ypc). He also became a reliable contributor in the team’s pass attack as well. When the season ended, Sanders had all of the momentum.
