3. Jordan Howard, RB
Jordan Howard was easily the Eagles best running back in last week’s game. And of course, aside from Corey Clement, he was the most underutilized in the pack further proving once again that this running back rotation makes zero sense on game day.
The rookie Miles Sanders received the most carries, while veteran running back Darren Sproles took on the second-most. Those two made some decent plays here and there, but for the most part, they weren’t all that impressive.
Howard, on the other hand, looked great every time he touched the ball. And his over seven yards-per-carry proved that he’s always going to be moving forward no matter what. But for some reason, the Eagles were reluctant to use him.
Well, Doug Pederson acknowledged the frustration of every fan from last week and vowed to sprinkle in more Howard. We’ll see if he sticks by that word, or continues to try and force-feed Sproles.
