Philadelphia Eagles’ LeSean McCoy Dominant Against Washington Redskins
Nick Foles wasn’t as accurate as he’s been in recent weeks and Riley Cooper wasn’t able to make much of an impact, but the Eagles had a solid performance from one of their most dependable offensive players.
That player is no other than star running-back LeSean McCoy.
McCoy has been having a great season, but he hasn’t been receiving much attention as the talk in Philly usually circles around the quarterback situation and what’s going to happen with Michael Vick. McCoy has been speaking only on the field and he delivered another big time performance against the Redskins right when his team needed him the most.
McCoy tallied 150 yards and two touchdowns for the Eagles in a game where he was the undisputed offensive star for his team. The receivers were quite off during the day (with the exception of DeSean Jackson who ended with 82 yards), so McCoy had to make things happen both rushing and through the air.
The star running-back delivered 77 yards in 20 carries through the ground and added 73 more on four receptions as he was heavily targeted by Nick Foles, who also rushed for another touchdown.
Nick Foles and Michael Vick may still be the talk of the day in Philadelphia, but the truth is that LeSean McCoy was the biggest reason the Eagles were able to snap their 10-game losing streak in front of their fans.
