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.
