Snow Can't Stop McCoy Or The Fans


Eight inches of snow blanketed Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday and made it hard to see much at kickoff, but the conditions didn't keep 69,144 fans from enjoying a win that they'll never forget.

"I thought our fans were - I don't know if I would have been sitting out there, I can tell you that, but they were awesome," said head coach Chip Kelly.

The Eagles struggled in the first half as they trailed 8-0 at the intermission, but the seats remained packed as the fans turned the inclement weather into a reason to party. Those fans were rewarded with LeSean McCoy's historic 217-yard rushing performance, a new single-game franchise record, as well as the team's fifth-straight victory, a 34-20 decision over the Lions.
