Miles Sanders Scores His Second Touchdown of the Game
We had an alternate title that was something like “Miles Sanders Keeps Fudging Up Brett’s Bets,” but we went with the conservative headline. Either way, Mile Sanders has scored his second touchdown to put the Eagles back on top as we approach halftime in the NFC Championship game.
Sanders has 39 yards on the ground on 10 carries (3.9 YPC), but he’s been potent in the red zone for Philadelphia today.
Sanders’ touchdown answered a Christian McCaffrey touchdown on the other side of things. It was also the first drive for the Eagles that didn’t end in a punt since the game’s opening drive. After a fumble recovery and a Boston Scott touchdown on the next drive, it’s now 21-7 Eagles with 16 seconds to play in the half.
The 49ers’ defense was doing an excellent job of keeping the Purdy-less 49ers afloat, but penalties have killed them on the last two drives.
