2) LeSean McCoy

"Going into this game everyone including the coaching staff knew that LeSean McCoy had to get going. Going into this game against the Buccaneers McCoy had yet to find the end zone. McCoy addressed the media on Wednesday saying: “I want to get going… That’s something that I really just put my mindset on is getting going and getting back to playing my ball. Finding the end zone, first downs, big runs, big chunks, making guys miss. You know highlight plays.”"

It’s safe to say McCoy found his old usual rhythm as he rushed the ball 23 times for 91-yards and found the end zone twice. McCoy averaged four yards per carry against the Buccaneers defensive front including his longest rush of the day being a 23-yard run. McCoy also added five receptions for 31-yards to put him at a 122-yard afternoon. It’s amazing that the running game seemed to get back on track where they left off last season, as McCoy will be in a tough position next week as the Bills host Bruce Irvin, Khalil Mack, NaVorro Bowman and the Raiders.
