Playing behind Philadelphia’s LeSean McCoy hasn’t always given former Kansas State running back Bryce Brown many opportunities to see the field in meaningful portions of the game.
Entering Sunday’s game against Chicago, Brown had just 188 yards on the season.
But with the Eagles leading 33-11 against the Bears, Brown got his chance to shoulder the load late in the game, and he made the most of it, rushing for 115 yards and a touchdown.
Brown broke off a 65-yard run to score his lone touchdown of the season.
Elsewhere in the league, Miami’s Daniel Thomas had a tough day, finishing with 6 yards on nine carries.
New Orleans running back Darren Sproles had a quiet day, catching three passes for 18 yards and rushing for 2 yards.
Justin Tuggle finished with two solo tackles for Houston in a 37-13 loss to Denver.
Jordy Nelson finished with three catches for 46 yards in Green Bay’s 38-31 loss to Pittsburgh.
Oakland’s Jeron Mastrud caught one pass for 12 yards in the Raiders’ 26-13 loss to San Diego. Reggie Walker finished with one tackle in the win.
