Eagles 23, Bills 20

Eagles put damper on McCoy's return

PHILADELPHIA — Sam Bradford and a tenacious defense ruined LeSean McCoy's homecoming.

Former Gators kicker Caleb Sturgis hit a 30-yard field goal with 3:26 left and safety Ed Reynolds intercepted Tyrod Taylor's pass in the final minutes as the Eagles beat the Bills.

McCoy had 74 yards rushing and 35 receiving in his return to Philadelphia. The two-time All-Pro kissed the Eagles logo at midfield before the coin toss and hugged owner Jeffrey Lurie.

After the game he sprinted to the locker room immediately and slammed his helmet into a wall. "I got nothing to say," he told a crowd of reporters around his locker.

Taylor's streak of 222 passes without a pick ended when his deep pass went right to Reynolds with 1:16 left. Sam Bradford threw for 247 yards, including a 53-yard touchdown to former Berkeley Prep standout Nelson Agholor.
