McCoy runs for 217, Eagles beat Lions

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- LeSean McCoy rushed for a franchise-best 217 yards, including touchdowns of 57 and 40 yards, and the Philadelphia Eagles overcame two TD returns by Jeremy Ross to beat the Detroit Lions 34-20 in blizzard conditions Sunday.
   Ross returned a punt 58 yards for a score and ran a kickoff 98 yards. But McCoy ran 57 yards up the middle to tie it, and Nick Foles connected with Riley Cooper on the 2-point conversion. Foles sneaked in from the 1 and Chris Polk had a 38-yard TD run to cap a 28-point fourth quarter for the Eagles (8-5).
   The Eagles, looking to go worst-to-first in the NFC East, won their fifth straight game and temporarily took sole possession of first place. Dallas (7-5) plays at Chicago on Monday night.
   The Lions (7-6) have a half-game lead over the Bears in the NFC North.
