Former Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders signed the richest running-back deal in free agency this offseason, inking a four-year, $25 million deal with the Carolina Panthers. Sanders put up career-high numbers across the board in 2022, as he rushed 259 times for 1,269 yards and 11 touchdowns while the Eagles won the NFC, but his numbers dipped in the postseason.
After averaging 74.6 rushing yards per game in the regular season, Sanders averaged 49.3 rushing yards in the playoffs. In Super Bowl LVII against the Kansas City Chiefs, Sanders managed just 16 yards on seven carries and a fumble. He played just 35 percent of offensive snaps in the biggest game of the year.
“Last game of the season? For all of the marbles? Everybody can answer that question,” Sanders said at OTAs this week when asked if he was disappointed by how he was used in the Super Bowl, via the Associated Press. “If they put themselves in my shoes, would they be happy? I don’t want to make headlines, (but) if it does, I don’t care.”
