Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters is confident in the team's running game, and one season after making a bold prediction about LeSean McCoy he’s at it again.

When asked about his goals for the Eagles rushing attack, Peters said getting DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews over 1,000 yards each was the goal.

Per Philly Voice:

Peters then added that all three running backs, which would include Darren Sproles, should have over 600 yards each. So that’s at least 1,000 for Murray, 1,000 for Mathews, and at least 600 for Sproles. That would total at least 2,600 yards. When the Eagles led the league in rushing in 2013, they amassed 2,566 yards.

The Eagles will have to do it with two new starting offensive guards in Allen Barbre at LG and (likely) Andrew Gardner at RG. “I’m comfortable with Al,” said Peters. “I’ve played beside him before. I’ve been working with him all offseason, so we have a good connection right now.”

Having a pair of 1,000 yard rushers has happened six times in NFL history, and three times in the last nine seasons.
