Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 185 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-7 victory against the Dallas Cowboys.

McCoy's 30 carries and 185 yards represented career highs, and he set them against a Cowboys defense that entered the meeting with the NFL's best rushing defense.

Through seven games, McCoy is second in the NFL in rushing yards (754), behind only Adrian Peterson (798), whose Vikings have played eight games. McCoy is on pace to run for 1,723 yards, which would establish a new franchise record previously held by Wilbert Montgomery (1,512 in 1979).

McCoy is the first Eagles player to win the award this season. Michael Vick was the last Eagle to secure the award, when he did it in Week 15 of the 2010 season.
