Nobody in the history of the Philadelphia Eagles has crossed the goal line more often in one season than LeSean McCoy. With his three rushing touchdowns against the Jets on Sunday, Shady has scored 20 touchdowns on the season. He simultaneously broke the record for most rushing touchdowns with 16 and added another to make it 17.
The previous record was held for over 60 years by legendary running back Steve Van Buren, set in 1945. However, as they remarked during the broadcast, Van Buren posted his 18 scores over a 10-game season. By comparison, it took McCoy 14 games to create the new milestone.
Regardless, an incredible feat for one of the best backs in the NFL today. With two games to play, McCoy could set the bar higher still, to a level where it might be another 60-plus years until somebody else comes along and breaks it again -- unless of course Shady tops himself next season!
Three games into his NFL career, Carson Wentz might need a bigger trophy case.
The 23-year-old, who picked up his first NFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance against Pittsburgh, has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month for September.
Yes, Wentz's first NFL month was a special one.
The No. 2 pick from North Dakota State has completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 769 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. He's the first rookie in NFL history to put up those numbers in the first three games of a career. And his 102 straight passing attempts without an interception is also a rookie record.
It's hard to believe that a little over a week before the season began, Wentz was scheduled to be the Eagles' third-string quarterback and have a redshirt year. That all changed when de facto GM Howie Roseman traded away starter Sam Bradford and the team decided to start the rookie.
While many thought the decision to start Wentz was the beginning of a long rebuilding year, the rookie has the Eagles off to a fast 3-0 start. Wentz has played very well, but has also been aided by a stout defense, led by NFC Defensive Player of the Month Fletcher Cox.
This week, Wentz is spending some time hunting while the Eagles are on their bye week. He bagged another trophy on Thursday.
The team will be back in action on Oct. 9 in Detroit to face the Lions.

Joel Embiid really trusts the process.
And he'll tell you as much over and over.
In fact, JoJo said it so much yesterdady that he was cracking himself up about just how much he trusts the process.
By most accounts, Joel was a bit rusty in the first couple of practices to kick off training camp, but, you know, you've just got to trust the process.
And he does. Trust the process.
