Following the best individual rushing game in Eagles history, LeSean McCoy has been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week Award.
In a memorable performance, McCoy racked up 217 yards in the Eagles 34-20 victory over the Detroit Lions. Dashing through the snow, McCoy rushed for 148 yards in the fourth quarter alone, en route to breaking the previous Eagles record of 205 yards set by Steve Van Buren in 1949. McCoy broke free for long touchdown runs of 40 and 57 yards to help lead the Eagles to their fifth-straight win.
McCoy won the FedEx Ground Player of the Week Award in Week 1 for his 184-yard performance against the Washington Redskins. If you'd like to do your part to see him take home the honors again, you can vote for him here. Voting lasts until 3 PM on Friday.
As part of the FedEx Air & Ground program and its commitment to small business owners, FedEx will support education efforts at Junior Achievement by making weekly $2,000 donations in each of the winning players' names. The funding, allocated to local Junior Achievement area offices in that team's city or state, is used to help U.S. small business development, by educating the next generation of entrepreneurs on how to start and grow their own businesses.
