Miles Sanders eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards, honors LeSean McCoy with the “Shady Bounce” in the Giants end zone
The Philadelphia Eagles nearly put up 50 points on the New York Giants Sunday thanks to strong performances by Jalen Hurts, AJ Brown, DeVonta Smith, and Miles Sanders, winning 48-22 to move to 12-1 on the season.
Miles Sanders scored two touchdowns and ran for 144 yards on 17 carries.
Sanders became the first Philadelphia Eagles running back with 1,000+ yards in a season since 2014, when LeSean McCoy conquered the same feat. Also worth noting, AJ Brown eclipsed the 1,000+ yard receiving mark, becoming the first Eagles WR to do so since Jeremy Maclin did in 2014.

Sanders, who clearly entered the game knowing what was at stake with his rushing yards, even gave a nod to LeSean McCoy after scoring a touchdown, doing Shady’s signature bounce in the end zone to celebrate. McCoy was obviously watching and gave Sanders a proper shoutout on Twitter, which was then turned into a video mashup and posted on Instagram by the Eagles.
