Back in early September when the Philadelphia Eagles were at FedEx Field to take on division rival Washington Redskins, running back LeSean McCoy was man on a mission. His football athletisism was well known, however, his talents were pushed to the side under the pass-happy Andy Reid.
New coach, all new LeSean McCoy.
McCoy was named NFC offensive player-of-the-month after posting a career high for the month of December 598 rushing yards on 101 rushing attempts (5.92 YPC) and four touchdowns. Included in McCoy’s brilliant December performance was a week 14 career game when he ran for 217 yards against the Detroit Lions.
McCoy added another 18 receptions for 140 yards (7.77 YPC) and one touchdown for a total production of 738 yards on 119 opportunities (6.20 avg).
LeSean McCoy has enjoyed a great deal of success in his fifth season. He had a mission at the start of the season. He was crowned with the rushing title after posting 1,607 yards during the regular season. McCoy also holds the Eagles record for single-game rushing yards after shredding the Detroit Lions defense for 217 yards
On top of those accolades, McCoy is also the rightful owner of the Philadelphia Eagles single-season rushing title (1,607) and most scrimmage yards in a season (2,146).
In his five-year pro career LeSean McCoy has produced 5,473 rushing yards and 39 touchdowns. He has contributed an additional 2,127 yards and 10 touchdowns coming out of the backfield as a receiver.
