Phil Simms thinks he knows what Eli Manning’s problem is

PHILADELPHIA — Carson Wentz leads the Eagles with 61 rushing yards, averaging 7.6 yards per attempt. It is not what the Eagles want, as running backs Darren Sproles and LeGarrette Blount have yet to get on track in two games. Still, it does show the mobility Wentz possesses. This brings us to Eli Manning and...

Despite limited snaps in Week 1, LeGarrette Blount projected to lead Eagles' backfield in touches in Week 2

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount is projected to lead the Philly backfield in touches in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs. What It Means: Blount played 23 snaps to Darren Sproles' 33 in Week 1, but he still saw 14 carries and 1 receptions in that one, compared to 2 carries and 5 receptions (on 8 targets) for Sproles. numberFire's models project Blount for 55.6 yards and 0.4 touchdowns on 14.2 carries as well as 7.5 yards and 0.1 touchdowns on 1.1 receptions in Week 2, making him our 19th-ranked fantasy running back.

Downs, distances, personnel groups and results behind Mike Gillislee’s three-TD Patriots premiere

Mike Gillislee found the end zone on three occasions Thursday night. Mike Gillislee has rushed for 11 touchdowns since Oct. 9, 2016. He’s appeared in 12 games over that span. It’s a track record that puts the 26-year-old New England Patriots running back in good company, as in the past calendar year of regular-season NFL football, only Melvin Gordon, Latavius Murray, Devonta Freeman, LeSean McCoy, Ezekiel Elliott, David Johnson and LeGarrette Blount have also crossed the goal line for double-digit scores on the ground. Gillislee got kickstarted a little later than most of whom. 2016...

The Eagles running game was punchless in Sunday's Week 1 30-17 win over the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field, with LeGarrette Blount, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood averaging a combined 2.6 yards per carry on 20 attempts, which will need to improve if this team is to find any balance on offense.

Patriots' Mike Gillislee: 'I wouldn't compare myself to Blount'

New England Patriots running back Mike Gillislee was not willing to compare himself to former Patriots back LeGarrette Blount in a recent interview. What It Means: When asked if he thinks of himself as a replacement for the departed Blount and his production, Gillislee said that Blount is "a great running back" and that, in reference to himself, "[he's] Mike Gillislee." He also responded by saying that he's "going to make the best of the opportunity" whenever called upon. The first-year Patriot figures to get early-down looks alongside Rex Burkhead in New England. And for what it's...
