Miles Sanders hauls in beautiful catch, makes young fan's day with TD ball
Miles Sanders is making plays in multiple ways for the Philadelphia Eagles.
The former Penn State running back was selected by the Eagles in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He’s put up good numbers as a rookie, running for 565 yards through 13 games. Add in his receiving numbers and Sanders had 948 yards from scrimmage entering Sunday’s action.
In fact, it was Sanders’ work as a receiver that earned him this touchdown against Washington. With Carson Wentz scrambling to try and buy time, he found Sanders deep in the corner of the end zone. The throw by Wentz was nice, but it was Sanders who finished the play by finishing the grab while keeping his body in bounds.

After two seasons playing behind Saquon Barkley in Happy Valley, Sanders put up over 1,200 yards rushing in his one season as a starter for the Nittany Lions. Now, he looks like a keeper for the Eagles.
