Shady’s yardage total was the fourth-highest of the week, but his two scores were more than Devonta Freeman (152 yards), Ezekiel Elliott (140), and DeMarco Murray (114) combined.
None of those players were up for the award, however. Instead, McCoy topped Seattle’s Christine Michael, who ran for 106 and two scores in the Seahawks’ 37-18 win over the 49ers, and LeGarrette Blount, whose 104 yards and two scores helped the Patriots roll over the Texans 27-0 on Thursday Night Football.
On the season, McCoy’s 227 yards rank tenth in the NFL, which is paced by Blount’s 298 yards on the ground. Blount also ties for the league lead with four rushing scores, one ahead of the group that includes McCoy’s three touchdowns on the ground.
Hopefully, McCoy will be able to gain on Blount in both categories when the Bills and Patriots face off this Sunday at Foxborough.
