Eagles weather storm, down Lions
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - It took awhile for LeSean McCoy and the Eagles to find their footing in the snowy conditions at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday.
But once they did, it was smooth sledding.
McCoy carried the ball 29 times for a franchise-record 217 yards and scored two of Philadelphia's four fourth-quarter touchdowns, as the Eagles rallied for a 34-20 victory over the Detroit Lions.
Snow started falling in the hours leading up to Sunday's tilt and remained constant for much of the game, leaving both high-powered offenses hampered.
Trailing 14-6 to start the fourth, Philadelphia turned to its ground game, with McCoy scoring from 40 and 57 yards out, respectively, around a 98-yard kickoff return from Detroit's Jeremy Ross.
Following a Detroit three-and-out, Nick Foles capped a 7-play, 71-yard march with a 1-yard TD surge and Chris Polk added a 38-yard touchdown run to cap the Philadelphia rally.
Foles finished 11-of-22 passing for 179 yards and a touchdown, but threw his first interception of the season in the win. DeSean Jackson added four catches for 59 yards and a score for the Eagles (8-5), who have won five straight games.
Matthew Stafford completed 10-of-25 passes for 148 yards, while Joique Bell carried the ball 23 times for 69 yards and a touchdown for Detroit (7-6), which has lost three of its last four games.
