The Philadelphia Eagles steamrolled the San Francisco 49ers this week en route to their second Super Bowl appearance in the past five seasons.
Although many masterful performances helped the Eagles secure a ticket to the Super Bowl, Miles Sanders was a true difference-maker for the team.

Because Sanders was so successful, he was able to take home the NVP, which is Nickelodeon’s take on the traditional MVP award.
This award is given out each week on their network, which Sanders was given for the very first time.
During the NFC Championship, Sanders ran for just 42 yards on 11 carries, which isn’t necessarily an impressive statistic on his own.
However, it was the two touchdowns that vaulted Sanders into consideration for this award.
The Eagles haven’t needed to throw the ball much as of late, considering the consistent threat and efficiency of their run game.
The best part of their run game is that they have several individuals that can break off a huge gain.
Besides Sanders, Jalen Hurts, Boston Scott, and Kenneth Gainwell are all effective runners in their own right.
When looking ahead to the Super Bowl, the Kansas City Chiefs will need to put their best foot forward on defense.
Although their defensive line is strong and improving as of late, the Chiefs will certainly have their work cut out for them.
The four-eyed monster of the Eagles’ rushing attack has been difficult to stop this season.
