On the surface, this looks like one of the biggest mismatches of the century.

In one corner, you have Philadelphia Eagles star running back LeSean McCoy. In the other, you have the Chicago Bears defence.

The Bears may be on the road on Sunday, but they are growling and snarling as they duke it out in attempting to win the NFC North title.

But when it comes to stopping the run, they stink. The Bears are dead last when it comes to run defence and that leaves only those who have McCoy in their fantasy pool drooling with anticipation.

McCoy is a tremendous back and the shiftiest runner in the NFL. One on one, he is almost impossible to stop. On the season, he has gained 1,850 all-purpose yards and is leading the league in rushing with 1,343 yards.

On top of that, McCoy wants to lead the charge Sunday night, wants to carry the load as the Eagles (8-6) look to maintain a one-game lead over the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East.
