Eagles Vs Cardinals: LeSean McCoy Breaks Franchise Record For TDs

The Eagles offense has sputtered all day, but finally seemed to come to life at the end of the half thanks to LeSean McCoy. The man they call "Shady" scored a TD for the ninth consecutive game, breaking the Eagles franchise record of 8 straight games with a TD previously held by Steve Van Buren. It was McCoy's 12th TD of the season, which leads the NFL.

The Eagles other score came from a defensive TD when Asante Samuel picked off Cardinals QB John Skelton and returned the ball 20 yards for a TD. No player in the NFL has more INTs than Samuel over the past four seasons. It was his fifth pick six of his career.

The Arizona score came on a 10 yard strike from John Skelton to Larry Fitzgerald to tie the game at 7-7. The Cardinals had moved the ball well in the first quarter, but came up empty when Jay Feeley missed two FGs.
