Eagles vs. Steelers: Pitt's LeSean McCoy relishes return to Heinz Field

Former Pittsburgh Panther LeSean McCoy is looking forward to his return to Heinz Field when his Philadelphia Eagles take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

In an article by Mike Bires of the, McCoy recalled the 2008 "Backyard Brawl" between Pitt and West Virginia that took place in Heinz Field, where he led the Panthers to a 19-15 victory on the strength of his 187 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

"My No. 1 memory of Heinz Field was beating West Virginia in my last game at Heinz Field," McCoy said in the article. "For sure, playing the Steelers at Heinz Field is going to be special."

McCoy is currently third in the NFL in rushing yards with 384 and one touchdown. His Eagles are currently 3-1 after defeating the division rival New York Giants on Sunday night in Week 4.

"I have tons of tickets," McCoy went on to say in the article. "A lot of my old teachers, friends and coaches will be at the game. I'm excited to be back."
