LeSean McCoy should be in for a big day against the New York Giants on Sunday. The Philadelphia Eagles running back is going up against the 28th ranked Giants rushing defense and should feast on one-on-one matchups against the Giants’ subpar linebackers throughout the day.
McCoy is no stranger to the Giants. He has been a Giant killer throughout his career breaking off clutch runs and showcasing his dynamic ankle breaking ability. There is no doubt what head coach Chip Kelly‘s game plan should be heading into Sunday: Run the rock.
The Eagles feature three running backs in McCoy, Chris Polk, and Bryce Brown who should expose the Giants’ poor running defense. Right now the Giants can’t stop anyone on the ground so it would be foolish not to expose what is one of many glaring weaknesses for New York.
McCoy has been superb so far this season. He leads the league in rushing by a pretty considerable margin. There is no reason why he shouldn’t drastically add to that total Sunday. While Adrian Peterson is perennially known as the best running back in the league there is no doubt who the best in the business is this year.
He has been taking advantage of any bit of running room he gets. McCoy utilizes jukes and cuts better than just about any running back the game has seen since the great Barry Sanders. Look for McCoy to have a monster day on Sunday. The Eagles are going to need to ride him all game to come away with a road victory on Sunday.
