Despite all of that animosity, Kelly told reporters in a conference call earlier this week he’d “love” to shake McCoy’s hand Sunday. McCoy, unsurprisingly, said he wants no part of it.
LeSean McCoy on Chip: “Why do you want me to shake that guy’s hand? … “What’s the big issue?” “I gotta go, man. I’ll see y’all Sunday.”
Marco Murray, is apparently feuding with Kelly as well. Murray, who’s only averaging 3.5 yards per carry this season, reportedly met with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie this week and criticized Kelly’s approachability. NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport says Murray could sink as low as fourth on the depth chart at running back this week.
Though Murray may not see the field Sunday, there’s little doubt that McCoy will be Buffalo’s featured back. In 10 games with the Bills this season, McCoy is averaging 4.6 yards per carry and has scored three touchdowns. Given that the Eagles have the sixth-worst rushing defense in the league, McCoy may finally have a chance to extract revenge on the football field Sunday instead of through the media and passive aggressive gestures.
Similarly, the Dallas Cowboys desperately needed to find wins to stay in the tight NFC East race, but beating the Green Bay Packers was a tall task, and they proved they weren’t up to it when Green Bay got the win.
In the finale of the day, a key AFC matchup between the Patriots and Texans had a big impact on the postseason race. New England faced its first three-game losing streak since 2002, but beat the Texans easily to clinch a playoff spot and jump back into first place in the AFC. The Texans had a chance to assert their grip on the AFC South, but fell back into second place behind the Colts.
Below, we’ve got all of the Week 14 games, with scores updated throughout the day.
