Eagles vs. Cowboys: LeSean McCoy Needs Another Big Game on the Ground
The Philadelphia Eagles could not have expected more from LeSean McCoy than the output he has given them to begin the 2013 NFL season. He leads the league in rushing, producing over 600 yards on the ground through six games. The multi-faceted attack that he presents to other teams, being able to catch the ball as well, has really helped to open avenues for other players, as well as make him more dangerous with every snap.
The Dallas Cowboys have not faced a top runner all year, and when they visit the confines of Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday with a makeshift defensive line and boasting a mediocre run stop overall, there’s no chance they’ll be happy to see McCoy.
After two subpar performances against the Denver Broncos and New York Giants, McCoy faced a good Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense and returned to his game changing self, rushing for 127 yards, the most they’d allowed all season.
Looking ahead to the Cowboys and the chance for the Eagles to gain sole possession of first place, McCoy will be the guy that takes them there. The Dallas defense has been mediocre overall but has had more difficulty with the run than the pass. In addition, add to that the fact that they’ll be missing three defensive linemen that were planned to build the team around.
After reasserting himself last week, McCoy is primed to lead the Eagles to another victory, their first at home in more than a calendar year. It would be a huge step in the right direction for Chip Kelly and Philadelphia to make this season meaningful and put them ahead of the competition in the NFC East.
