This announcement is great news for the Eagles, who run a great deal of their offense through McCoy. Thus far on the season, McCoy has already rushed for 1,050 yards and 11 touchdowns (both tops in the NFL) and has caught 38 passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns. 

The Seahawks will look to keep limit McCoy, who averages 5.3 yards per carry - and thus far have held opponents to 3.5 yards per carry on the season, tied for 2nd in the NFL.
