2. Don’t forget about Number 36 in November. Don’t forget that doing so could keep Miles Sanders healthy.
There’s something about the cold air of the late months of the regular season. It’s in those times, that the ball is harder to hold on to and the footing isn’t always as sure as it should be (depending on where teams play). Miles Sanders tends to stack up the numbers in December. Boston Scott often heats up during a month when we begin thinking of pumpkin pie and turkey.
Since 2019, Scott has added 391 rushing yards with two touchdowns to his professional resume during the month of November.
In 2021, Scott rushed for a career-high 81 yards in a 30-13 win versus the Denver Broncos and broke a 23-yarder during the closing minutes to help ensure a win. Oh, and by the way, as mentioned earlier, the aforementioned 56-yard run versus the Giants came during a November contest as did a 70-yard performance versus the Dallas Cowboys.
What may be most impressive about Scott’s late-season success is he’s done so with limited carries. He boasts 74 rushing attempts for his career during our great nation’s 11th month. On another note, the best way to keep Sanders healthy could be upping Scott’s workload during the middle of the season, where he shines the brightest. It definitely could be a win-win for the team and for Boston.
