Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders, Philadelphia Eagles at Chicago Bears
While the Bears used to be a stout run defense, especially at the beginning of the season, they’ve fallen apart over the last four weeks. Five different running backs have scored seven touchdowns against the Bears. Two backs have rushed for at least 115 yards and the Bears look vulnerable on defense. While we cannot guarantee Howard will get as much work as he did in Week 8, Sanders continues to get action too and is explosive enough to at least grab flex consideration.
For the first time this season, Howard got a full plate of carries and he had his second best game of the season and there was still plenty left for Sanders to do. Following the plan they laid out for the Bills, Chicago should see a similar fate against the Eagles’ backs.
