The Eagles ground game by committee excelled in yesterday’s 32-27 win over the Redskins:
Darren Sproles led the way with 47 yards on nine carries, while Jordan Howard picked up 44 yards on six carries in his Eagles’ debut.
Miles Sanders also got some runs in his first career regular season game with 11 carries for 25 yards.
The Birds finished the game with 123 rushing yards and a touchdown on 31 carries, which was good enough for a very solid 4.0 yards per carry.
