Driven Stronger: LeSean McCoy sets franchise rushing record in blizzard

Matt Grassie

Despite eight inches of snow blanketing the playing surface at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, LeSean McCoy turned in his greatest performance as a pro in the Eagles' 34-20 victory over the Lions. The running back carried the football 29 times for 217 yards and two touchdowns, setting the franchise record for rushing yards in a single game and taking the NFL's lead for rushing yards this season. McCoy now sits at 1,305 yards for the year, putting him just 207 yards from Wilbert Montgomery's franchise record with three weeks to play.
