LeSean McCoy is out to get revenge on the Philadelphia Eagles for trading him this offseason. Tuesday, the running back made sure to let Bills teammates know exactly how important Sunday's tussle is to him and asked for their help beating his former team.

"Today he walked in the building, full of juice, full of energy," running back Boobie Dixon said, via ESPN.com. "He walked pretty much in a lot of guys' faces and just let us know, he need us this week. So I can't wait, man. I'm excited.

"We can feel him on so many different levels. We gonna go out there and fight hard, we want it for him, too."

McCoy spent his first six seasons in Philadelphia before being traded to Buffalo in the offseason. The running back blasted Chip Kelly following the trade, saying the coach got rid of "the good black players."

Sunday's matchup is huge for both teams' playoff positioning, but Shady made sure his teammates knew how much he personally wants to beat his former squad.

"It's a lot of things that go into it," Dixon said. "All of them. It can be 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d. Just pick one, you know what I'm saying? But the fact is, he want it. He want it bad. He already stressed that to us early this morning.

"So you gotta get on the saddle. We got to do this for our boy. We got to do it for Shady."
