Sanders ran for 64 yards on nine carries and brought in his only target for no gain against the Giants on Sunday.

Boston Scott saw six more carries than Sanders but generated the same amount of yardage and lost a fumble in the one-score game. One could generously assume the Eagles have some basis for yanking the playing time of their running backs back and forth on a week-to-week basis, but from afar, there's no evident explanation. Scott was a healthy scratch for the Eagles in the first six weeks of the year, but coach Nick Sirianni decided to prioritize him a game after Scott produced 16 yards on six carries and Sanders generated 94 yards on 16 totes. Sanders and the Eagles offense have a great matchup against the Jets in Week 13, and whoever they decide to give the ball in that game will likely do well. Whether it's Sanders, Scott, Kenneth Gainwell, Jordan Howard (knee) or some combination of that group is impossible to prognosticate.
