The Philadelphia Eagles need their playmakers to shine even brighter in Week 6.
With all of the changes that the Eagles’ offensive line has seen and with all of the attention Travis Fulgham is getting, it’s easy to forget about running back Miles Sanders, at least until gameday. The former Penn State Nittany Lions standout has been up and down, but on the season, he’s racked up 316 yards and three touchdowns on 62 carries. That’s good for an average of 5.1 yards per rush.
His 74-yard run against the Steelers helped that, but no Eagles fan will complain. As a matter of fact, it would be great to see him have another big play or even two against the Ravens on Sunday.
So now we know Travis Fulgham’s touchdown grab in Week 4 wasn’t a fluke. After hauling in two catches for 57 yards and one touchdown against the 49ers, the Old Dominion standout outdid himself and caught ten passes for 157 yards and two touchdowns against the Steelers a week later.
Just like that, Fulgham went from the ‘Birds’ practice squad to the starting lineup, and it doesn’t seem like he’ll go back to the bench anytime soon. As a matter of fact, he could form a nice ‘one-two’ punch with Jalen Reagor once the latter comes back from the thumb injury he sustained in Week 2. For the time being, Fulghman needs to keep performing the way he has in the last two weeks for Philly to be successful on offense.
