The Eagles got things right, Kelly made sure of that, in a thoroughly dominating 54-11 victory over the Bears.
This could be quite an offensive showdown. Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson vs. Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.
The Eagles couldn’t have been very happy on the flight home from Minnesota.
For the first time, this Eagles team was faced with the position of being the team that should win and had no logical reason to lose. To the surprise of some, the Eagles played like a team unfamiliar with taking on the role of favorite, and that inexperience may have come in to play.
If 203 victories, 2 Cy Young Awards and over 2,000 strike-outs aren’t enough for entrance into the Hall of Fame, I’m not sure what is.
The loss snapped the Eagles’ five-game winning streak, dropping them to 8-6 with two games left, while Minnesota improved to 4-9-1.
The Eagles face the Vikings Sunday in Minnesota with the teams and their respective head coaches seemingly headed in opposite directions.
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.
