Philadelphia Eagles’ LeSean McCoy Establishes Himself As Best Running Back In Football
What can you say about LeSean “Shady” McCoy? He absolutely torched the putrid Chicago Bears run defense to the tune of 133 yards on only 18 carries as he averaged an astounding 7.4 yards per carry to go along with two rushing touchdowns.
As expected, the Philadelphia Eagles gashed the Bears in the run game. Give the big fellas up front credit, they opened up gaping holes for all three running backs. Make no mistake about it, this wasn’t a one man show. Bryce Brown got in on the action with 115 yards on only nine carries, including a 65-yard dash to the end zone.
Chris Polk also chipped in with some bruising runs that included an impressive, tackle-breaking touchdown gallop. The Eagles, the no. 1 rushing offense coming into the game, only cemented that status as they blazed the Bears for nearly 300 rushing yards on the night.
This one wasn’t competitive from the start, and the Eagles have the running game to thank for that. Nick Foles did his part in managing the game and making plays when he needed to, but McCoy and company carried this blowout win on their backs. McCoy has been everything for the Eagles this year. He became just the third Eagles back to have 2,000-plus yards from scrimmage. Is McCoy in the MVP running? You can bet your bottom dollar.
He has easily been the Eagles’ most valuable player, and has been head and shoulders the best back in football this season. While it’s likely that Peyton Manning will take home the award, McCoy has made his mark on the league regardless. Right now, it’s always Shady in Philadelphia.
