Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy told fans at practice Thursday that he "owns" the Dallas Cowboys.

McCoy has faced the Cowboys nine times in his career, including a 2009 playoff game. He's rushed for 719 yards and two touchdowns on 139 carries against them, averaging 5.2 yards per carry. The Eagles have a 4-5 record against the Cowboys in those games.

The running back has repeatedly said over the last year that he's the best running back in the NFL, and recently raised the possibility of rushing for 2,000 yards this season.

The NFL's leading rusher last season with 1,607 yards, McCoy was on a regional cover of this week's Sports Illustrated.
