Thriller: Eagles running back LeSean McCoy appeared at his postgame news conference wearing a white leather jacket that recalled one made iconic by singer Michael Jackson. After McCoy answered questions for a few minutes, Eagles public relations director Derek Boyko told McCoy it was time to go. “Your jacket is trending on Twitter,” Boyko told McCoy.
Seems like old times: For most of the season, the Eagles have been answering questions about what was wrong with their running game. The offensive line, which remained healthy as McCoy led the NFL in rushing last season, was riddled with injuries early on. For the past two weeks, the line has been clicking. “There was so much space,” McCoy said. Center Jason Kelce agreed that the running game finally feels like it did in 2013.
Campaigning: Defensive end Fletcher Cox dropped Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray for a 1-yard loss in the red zone, and the Eagles held Dallas to a field goal. Teammate Connor Barwin called it the play of the game. “Fletcher Cox is great every day,” Barwin said. “He is a Pro Bowl player.” Cox said he didn’t know if his reputation was growing. “Defensive ends in a 3-4 defense don’t get much attention,” Cox said.
