LeSean McCoy glances at the NFL leaderboard and sees he's still first in rushing.

It's not the most important number for him.

"The biggest thing is winning," McCoy said Wednesday. "I'd rather be winning than have a ton of yards."

McCoy had just 44 yards rushing on 12 carries in the Philadelphia Eagles' 49-20 win at Oakland last Sunday. It was the third straight game he was held under 60 yards and fourth time in five weeks. The Eagles (4-5) are 3-2 in those games, however.

If defenses gear up to stop McCoy, it usually opens up the passing game. Nick Foles exploited the Raiders' secondary, throwing seven touchdown passes to tie an NFL record.
