McCoy chasing Eagles first NFL rushing title since '49

With his chief competition hurting, LeSean McCoy can become the first Eagles player to lead the NFL in rushing since Steve Van Buren in 1949.

McCoy isn’t going to run for 217 yards each week as he did leading the Eagles to a 34-20 blowout of the Detroit Lions in the snow Sunday.

But with 1,305 rushing yards, McCoy has a healthy lead over Adrian Peterson (1,221 yards), who has an ankle issue limiting his mobility.

The third-leading NFL rusher is Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs with 1,162 yards.
