Bryce Brown Already in Top 10

Bryce Brown set the Eagles’ record for rushing yards in a game by a rooke Monday night against the Carolina Panthers. It is the 10th-highest rushing total in Eagles history.

His 178 rushing yards were also the third-most by an Eagle running back in a loss. That seems fitting, as the two Eagles with more rushing yards than Brown in a defeat did so against the Cleveland Browns.

The most rushing yards in a game by an Eagle (*postseason game):
