NFL fans enjoyed a feast of Thanksgiving Day football last night, with the Philadelphia Eagles huge 33-10 win over the Dallas Cowboys the game of the night.

LeSean McCoy was the star of the contest for the Eagles, as the premier running back had his best game of the season with 25 carries for 159 rushing yards and one touchdown.

After the game, LeSean McCoy spoke about how he wanted to prove his worth on a national stage again after a terrible season so far. McCoy specifically wanted to outrush DeMarco Murray in the primetime Thanksgiving Day game, and with 156 yards and one touchdown, Shady did just that.
