New Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles blasted down the field for 49-yard touchdown, his personal longest of all time in their Week 1 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Coincidentally, Sproles’ touchdown registers the first on the board for the Eagles, who got off to a rocky start to say the least against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Right now, LeSean McCoy fans and fantasy owners are shaking their heads and probably beginning to wonder if this is a sign to come from the versatile running back, who could steal some touches.
It would appear that Sproles is slated for a spectacular year with his new team as he begins his ninth season with the NFL after playing for San Diego for five seasons and New Orleans for three years.
