Sunday Night Is McCoy's Night (Part Two)

Posted Dec 11, 2014

Running back LeSean McCoy has enjoyed some of his best performances under the bright lights of Sunday Night Football.

Earlier this season, McCoy rushed for 149 yards in the Black Sunday win over the New York Giants on ... you guessed it ... Sunday Night Football.

Since 2010, McCoy has played in 10 games on Sunday Night Football. He's had at least 92 yards rushing in each of those 10 games. He broke the 100-yard barrier in six-straight Sunday night games.

And McCoy has held nothing back against Dallas. In three games vs. Dallas on Sunday night since 2010, McCoy has 465 yards rushing on 73 carries and three total touchdowns. In the NFC East division title game in Week 17 of last season in Dallas, McCoy had 131 yards rushing and a touchdown reception.

In the first meeting with Dallas this season on Thanksgiving, McCoy had a season-high 159 yards rushing and a touchdown. McCoy expects the Cowboys to have a few tricks up their sleeve to slow down the defending rushing champ.

"I'm sure they're not happy about it. They want to make that statement," McCoy said. "We look forward to them coming into here and fighting hard. It'll be a tough game. I don't think it'll be anything like last game, that type of blowout."

McCoy was held to 50 yards rushing last Sunday against Seattle, his lowest output since the Monday night rout of the Carolina Panthers. While McCoy envisions that Dallas will try to emulate what Seattle did, it's hard to just copy and paste a scheme from one team to the next.

"The hard part is just having the personnel. I think Seattle has the personnel. They can get away with it. They can get away with a lot of different things that other teams can't," McCoy said. "That's the hard part of copying what teams try to do to have success."
