Chip Kelly spoke about the character of his team, the comeback against the Detroit Lions in eight inches of snow and what the Eagles were faced against in Sunday’s memorable 34-20 victory during his day-after press conference at the NovaCare Complex.
Credit Chip Kelly and his staff for committing to an offensive style that at times is not what they feel is most comfortable. Sticking to the power running game and letting the offensive line set the tone up front proved to be the best decision Kelly could have made. It helps to have one of the best running backs in the league, LeSean McCoy, blowing through the holes opened up in front of him.
It seemed like we all changed our opinion of the snowy Eagles game at the very same time.
LeSean McCoy rushed for an Eagles all-time record 217 yards and scored 2 TD’s as the Birds beat the Detroit Lions 34-20 Sunday afternoon.
Two potent offenses will face off Sunday when the Detroit Lions visit the Eagles in a potential NFC playoff preview.
The Philadelphia Eagles handled a close game against a tough Arizona Cardinals team. See how Nick Foles, Chip Kelly and others performed during the home win against the Cardinals.
The Eagles defense swarmed all over the Arizona offense for five sacks and three turnovers, then hung on for the 24-21 victory.
Chip Kelly’s unique way of doing things has been the right formula for the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles have found a quarterback they can feel good having on the field, the league’s leading rusher leads the offense and the defense has improved week by week. The Chip Kelly offense is coming along nicely, even if Nick Foles is not considered the ideal quarterback to lead it but Kelly has been silencing critics as he keeps the Eagles loose and ready to strike.
The Eagles now own sole possession of first place in the NFC East, after a 24-16 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
The Eagles go into Sunday’s game with Washington having lost 10 consecutive games at Lincoln Financial Field. Though there have been many theories, there seems to be no real explanation for the team’s poor play at home, save for last season’s poor play pretty much everywhere.
The Eagles got another solid game out of their offense and the defense handled a weakened opposing offense. This is what good teams do, but the Eagles still have some work to do before being counted as a good team in the NFC.
Nick Foles didn’t throw seven touchdowns this time, but he did find some imaginative ways to get the ball into the end zone against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Sunday’s win in Oakland was the most complete team victory of the season for the Eagles. You can never get too carried away with one game, but this was a flat out dominant performance by the Eagles and perhaps a glimpse once again as to what the future could be like with Chip Kelly in charge.
The Eagles’ offense emerged to smash the Oakland Raiders 49-20 Sunday, behind an NFL-tying seven touchdown passes from Nick Foles.
