About McCoy

Leads the NFL in rushing (1,305 yards) after setting a franchise record with 217 yards against Detroit last week. He’s rushed for 150-plus yards in four games this season. No other NFL running back has reached that mark more than once.

Who has the edge?

Greenway described McCoy as a “matchup nightmare” this week because he’s also so tough to defend as a receiver. McCoy is elusive in space and creates mismatches for defenses as a threat out of the backfield.

Advantage: McCoy

THE BIG NUMBER

400 Philadelphia has produced 400-plus offensive yards in 10 games. The Eagles can become the fifth team to reach that mark 11 times. New Orleans (2011) holds the record (13).

BREAKOUT DAY

Sharrif Floyd, Vikings: Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said the rookie defensive tackle has displayed “exponential” improvement the past few weeks. Floyd, a Philadelphia native, will be extra motivated to play well against his hometown team.
