Spectacular finish to season
Gibson rushed 21 times for 146 yards and a touchdown and brought in one of three targets for five yards in Washington's 22-7 win over the Giants on Sunday.
The second-year back topped off the campaign with a spectacular showing, putting himself comfortably over the 1,000-yard mark in the process. Gibson was one of the few bright spots during a profoundly disappointing second half for Washington, as he gained 88 yards or more on the ground in three of the last six contests. If the Football Team upgrades at quarterback via free agency, trade or the draft, Gibson could be in line for a true breakout 2022 while operating in what would be a more balanced attack.
