IRVING, Texas -- The Philadelphia Eagles' rushing attack apparently caught the Dallas Cowboys' defense by surprise on Thanksgiving.

"I would say we kind of underestimated them pretty much, you know what I mean?" Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey said.

Actually, that's going to require some elaboration.

After all, LeSean McCoy is one of the most accomplished running backs in the NFL. He ran for a season-high 159 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in the Eagles' rout of the Cowboys, but that kind of production can hardly be considered a surprise by anyone who has followed McCoy's career.

McCoy ranks third in the NFL with 6,541 rushing yards since the Eagles selected him in the second round of the 2009 draft. He won the league's rushing title with 1,607 yards last season. He led the league in rushing touchdowns with 17 in 2011.

It's not exactly breaking news that McCoy is a dangerous back. So how did the Dallas defense underestimate the Eagles' running game?

"It was the run scheme pretty much," Mincey said. "Like you would dominate your man and then you'd peek inside and that little bit of discipline, it was costing us big chunks of yardage. You've just got to remember what type of player you're dealing with and you've just got to be focused. Once you get in your lane, you stay in your lane and you don't move until the play is over or he's somewhere past you where you can get off and make a tackle.

"I think we'll get it this go-around."

The Cowboys have been thinking about this go-around almost constantly since walking off the AT&T Stadium turf after their embarrassing loss to the Eagles. Mincey said he wishes the rematch was tomorrow instead of Sunday, although he quickly acknowledged that the Cowboys needed a little bit more time to game plan.

"We'll show up with our play," Mincey said. "We're going to talk with our pads. And I'm so excited for all the men in the locker room, because they're excited for this game. That's all we've been talking about. Even during the Chicago game, I had to [say], ‘Hey, hush, man. We've got to finish beating Chicago and then we'll get to it.'

"But it's exciting, man. I'm very excited, definitely ready to play the Philadelphia Eagles."

Clearly McCoy is the guy we have to stop on Sunday. Clearly we had to stop Forte when we played Chicago. We shut his azz down, we have shut down McCoy before.

Yes this is an important game, but we need to show the league we belong. Beating the Eagles will send out the message

McCoy is a jerk and I hope he gets stuffed Sunday night.

Wagner: LeSean McCoy 'didn't want no part' of contact

It's clear the Seattle Seahawks weren't impressed with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

After cornerback Richard Sherman told reporters that the Legion of Boom "never felt threatened" by a Chip Kelly passing attack stripped of DeSean Jackson, linebacker Bobby Wagner called out running back LeSean McCoy for shying away from contact.

"We really wanted to make sure he felt us every single time he got the ball," Wagner said this week, per KIRO-AM. "There was one play he fell back. It was me and him in the hole and he just fell down. He didn't want no part of the contact, so I think that probably got to him."

McCoy's paltry 50 yards off 17 carries came on a day when the Eagles piled up the fewest total yards in a game (139) during Kelly's heady reign in Philly.

The Eagles never found their groove against a Seahawks defense that looks every bit as stingy as last year's Super Bowl-winning juggernaut.

After all the early-season fretting over Seattle's hot-and-cold start, it really just came down to getting healthy. With Wagner, cornerback Byron Maxwell and safety Kam Chancellor humming again, anything feels possible for the defending champs

I do believe we have more talent than the Eagles. We just need to contain their gadget garbage.


We don't need a mod here, but we need a couple of guys to grow up. I can't stand people who fight just to fight.

I would tend to agree with you on the OFFENSIVE side of the ball. But, I simply cannot agree on the DEFENSIVE side of the ball.

Its no secret, if the offense can't control the ball thedefense will get killed. We did get a couple of guys back into the rotation this weak though on defense.  Patmon, and Hitchens

Brent is injured so we have already lost a wide body on the D-line.
