PHILADELPHIA -- Once LeSean McCoy put his head down and ran straight ahead instead of juking and jiving, no one could stop him. McCoy ran for a franchise - best 217 yards, including touchdowns of 57 and 40 yards and the Philadelphia Eagles overcame two touchdown returns by Jeremy Ross to beat the Detroit Lions 34 -20 in a blizzard Sunday.
Snow began falling two hours before kickoff and intensified after the game started. Workers used shovels and hand - held blowers to clear off yard lines. Conditions were so poor neither team tried a field goal and there were two - point conversion attempts after seven of the eight touchdowns.
