LeSean McCoy should be called the Cowboy Killer; He always tears them up

LeSean McCoy ran over, around and through the Cowboys defense for 159 yards and a touchdown, averaging 6.4 yards per carry in the Eagles’ emphatic 33-10 victory at JerryWorld. McCoy’s yardage total was the third-highest produced by a player against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day, behind a couple of Hall-of-Famers. Earl Campbell ran for 195 yards as the Houston Oilers defeated the Cowboys in 1979, and two years later, Walter Payton ran for 179 yards in a 10-9 Dallas victory.

McCoy has now run for more yards against the Cowboys (854) than has any other Eagles player; he surpassed Brian Westbrook’s total of 751 on Thursday.

McCoy’s teammates contributed 97 additional rushing yards to the Eagles’ cause, and the team total of 256 yards was the highest ever surrendered by the Cowboys on Turkey Day.
