LeSean Report: Bills' offensive shortcomings aside, McCoy is on a roll

LeSean McCoy had another efficient contest in Week 13's loss to the Patriots, his third impressive performance in his last four games.

He carried 15 times for 93 yards and forced two missed tackles.

Through 12 games, McCoy has forced 29 missed tackles on 255 touches. Through 12 games in 2016, he'd forced 52 missed tackles on 227 touches.

His yards-before-contact average is now 2.14. At this point last season, that figure was 2.85.

Over his last four contests, McCoy has accumulated 305 yards on 58 carries, which equates to a 5.25 yards-per-carry average. He averaged a whopping 5.4 yards per carry in the entire 2016 campaign.

Going into the game against New England, McCoy was averaging 4.42 yards per touch this season. He now averages 4.52 yards per touch, which is the 11th-best figure among the 28 running backs who've received at least 150 touches thus far in the 2017 season.

McCoy is 195 rushing yards away from 10,000 in his career. Only 29 running backs in NFL history have run for 10,000 or more yards.

Despite their overall record, the Colts have been relatively stout against the run this year. They allow 3.9 yards per carry, which is the 11th-lowest figure in football.
