Although LeSean McCoy was already named a pro-bowler in December, the NFL decided to bestow another award on “Shady”, for his big month of December.

In the month of December, McCoy ran for 598 yards and four touchdowns, while the Eagles posted a 4-1 record, and won their first NFC East division title since 2010. McCoy’s month was also historic in many respects, as he broke the Eagles single-game rushing record against the Lions by running for 217 yards, and set a new Eagles single-season rushing record in the Cowboys game, and finished off the year with 1,607 yards.
It felt like every game in December, McCoy would have at least one breakaway run, that resulted in him holding his arms up to the crowd, running into the end-zone, and doing his signature touchdown dance. It was pretty fun to watch McCoy all season, but he put early-season concerns of the wear-and-tear on his body to sleep, by finishing with a fantastic December.
McCoy follows up his teammate Nick Foles, who was named NFC offensive player of the month for November. The duo became the first pair of Eagles to win the award back-to-back months, in team history.
