The Philadelphia Eagles got a big 54-11 win over the Chicago Bears, a team that could’ve clinched the NFC North title with a win. Heading into a season finale against the Dallas Cowboys that will determine the NFC East champion, the Eagles have to be feeling confident.
Especially after watching the Cowboys barely manage to get a win against a Washington Redskins team with only three wins this season. Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said as much in comments after the game.
“Just the confidence level is out of this world,” McCoy said, via CSNPhilly.com. “We feel like every play is going to work, every play is going to be effective. There’s always this feeling like, ‘We can’t lose.’”
His teammates agree.
“Once we start rolling, it’s hard to stop us,” left tackle Jason Peters said.
For McCoy he could break two records against the Cowboys: the Eagles’ single-season rushing record and the Eagles’ record for total yards in a season. For McCoy it is still all about winning.
“The main thing is to win,” McCoy said. “But just to be honest, it means a lot. In this game, stats and records are made to be broken. You train hard and it’s the stuff you dream about.
“Dream about going to the Super Bowl, winning games, dream about breaking records, dream about rushing title … all that stuff does play a part for sure, but the biggest thing is winning. We want to win. But to break records, that’s pretty cool also.”
