Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy Up For ESPYs

Posted Jun 24, 2014

Quarterback Nick Foles and running back LeSean McCoy have been nominated for ESPY Awards after their performances in the 2013 season. Winners are determined by a fan vote which can be found here.

Foles is up for the Best Breakthrough Athlete award after taking over as the starter midway through the season and leading the Eagles to wins in eight of their final nine games to bring home the NFC East division title. Foles posted the third-highest passer rating in NFL history, had the best touchdown-to-interception ratio ever, tied an NFL single-game record with seven touchdown passes and won Offensive MVP honors at the Pro Bowl.

McCoy is a finalist for the Best NFL Player award after becoming the first Eagle to lead the NFL in rushing and yards from scrimmage since Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Steve Van Buren in 1947. McCoy's 1,607 yards on the ground and 2,146 yards from scrimmage in 2013 set new franchise records. McCoy earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors for the second time in his career.

The Eagles won a team ESPY Award in 2011 for Best Game after the Miracle at the New Meadowlands. Fan voting for this year's awards ends on July 16.
