Miles Sanders, Philadelphia Eagles at Carolina Panthers
The Panthers did get beat up by the run last week against the Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard but that still doesn’t give us any better feelings for Sanders in Week 5.
Sanders is off to an atrocious beginning to the 2021 season. Through four weeks, he has not rushed a touchdown in and his weekly rushing yards total is shrinking each week. From a pure rushing stand point, he’s going in the wrong direction. Now rookie Kenneth Gainwell has bitten into Sanders’ share of the committee enough to carve out a regular role each week, a role that has been more effective in moving the ball and finding the end zone.
