Philadelphia Eagles offence 'feels like an all-star team', says RB Miles Sanders
The Philadelphia Eagles have made some impressive additions in the off-season, and running-back Miles Sanders believes they're capable of achieving something special in 2022.
After finishing with a 9-8 record last season, the Philadelphia Eagles will be aiming to knock the Dallas Cowboys off their perch in the NFC East and piece together a play-off run.
Many expected the Eagles to endure a rebuild season under new head coach Nick Sirianni last year, but instead the franchise ended with season-topping offence stats and a spot in the play-offs.
With star receiver A.J. Brown joining the ranks this summer, things may get even better for the Eagles this year.
Alongside fellow receiver DeVonta Smith, quarterback Jalen Hurts, tight-end Dallas Goedert and running-back Miles Sanders, the Eagles look to have built a lethal, multidimensional offence.
Can they improve and make a push for the Super Bowl? Sanders seems to think so, with the 25-year-old describing the current roster "like an all-star team".
"Oh man. We all feel like we're on an all-star team, so we feel great. We feel unstoppable, I'm not gonna lie. The vibes are great, always have been," said Sanders.
"Nick Sirianni is doing a great job just keeping the vibes right, the chemistry is good," he added.
"We compete a lot in practice. But we've gotta see. Its gonna come down to camp, taking it day by day, putting everything together."
The upcoming season will be a crucial one for Sanders too - his fourth in the NFL and last on a rookie contract.
After missing much of last season through injury, Sanders will be keen to fulfil some of the potential the Eagles saw in him when they drafted him in the second round in 2019.
At the end of last season, Sanders had totaled career lows of 137 carries, 754 rushing yards and no rushing scores. His 5.5 yards per carry were a career-high, however.
With a stacked receiving corps likely taking pressure off Sanders to carry the ball forward, he may well thrive in an unpredictable offence this year.
The Eagles start their 2022/23 NFL season on the road to NFC opposition in the shape of the Detroit Lions, with their match starting at 18:00 BST on September 11.
