The Philadelphia Eagles had a chance to take sole possession of first place in the NFC East last week with a win over the Dallas Cowboys. They came up short though and struggled on offense. Quarterback Nick Foles got injured at the end of the third quarter, Matt Barkley through three interceptions on three drives in the fourth quarter, and running back LeSean McCoy couldn’t get anything going on the ground.
“I just wasn’t myself,” McCoy said, via Sheil Kapadia of PhillyMag.com. “I felt like with a game like this where my team needed me and depended on me, I didn’t show up. I started doing just too many individual type of plays, not really going with the plays and just doing my own thing. Just was a little frustrated. I wasn’t really making the plays that I usually make. … I just tried to make too many things happen. Certain plays, from running the ball to screens, different things like that. I felt that was probably my worst performance since my rookie year. But I’ll bounce back this week for sure. Just gotta trust in the scheme. If things are not working out, eventually they’ll break.”
McCoy rushed 18 times for 55 yards and caught 6 passes for 26 yards against the Cowboys.
