Just how good was LeSean McCoy against the Colts in the snow on Sunday?
He earned Pro Football Focus' second-highest grade among all running backs in Week 14. Beyond that, he forced a whopping eight missed tackles. Ironically, Indianapolis runner Frank Gore was the only ball-carrier who forced more missed tackles (nine) on the ground.
McCoy's grade of 93.5 – in PFF's "elite" range – was his highest thus far in the 2017 season, and his eight missed tackles rushing were the most on the year as well.
His 3.8 yards after contact per rush was his highest figure in that stat category too.
Through 13 games, McCoy has forced 37 missed tackles on 287 touches. Through 13 games in 2016, he'd forced 56 missed tackles on 249 touches.
His yards-before-contact average is now an even 2.00. At this point last season, that number was 3.04.
Going into the game against the Colts, McCoy was averaging 4.52 yards per touch. He now averages 4.56 yards per touch.
In Week 14, he went over 1,000 yards in a season for the sixth time in his current nine-year NFL career. He now sits just 39 yards short of 10,000 rushing yards as a professional and 48 yards shy of Ricky Williams for 29th on the all-time rushing yard list.
Over his last five games, Buffalo's feature back has carried the ball 90 times and amassed 461 yards on the ground (5.12 yards per carry).
