LeSean McCoy and the Philadelphia Eagles‘ variety of play makers showed out on Sunday afternoon. This was the type of game where everyone got involved. McCoy had 150 total yards and two touchdowns as he was effective in both the passing and running game.
Also, getting in on the action was star receiver DeSean Jackson to the tune of 82 yards receiving. Both tight ends, Brent Celek and Zach Ertz made some big plays down field, and Riley Cooper, Nick Foles favorite target, also moved the chains as the offense moved at a feverish pace through three quarters.
This was vintage Eagles offense. Big, explosive plays and scoring points in no time. They would have loved to have done more damage in the fourth quarter, but by then they were trying to bleed the clock and sit on the lead as opposed to scoring points.
Truth be told the Eagles play so much better when they play fast. They are still learning how to slow down tempo in Chip Kelly’s offense but the hope here is that they will eventually learn.
Right now, the Eagles seem to be clicking on all cylinders. The offense looks like it’s back in mid-season form and Billy Davis’ unit has now allowed 21 points or fewer in seven straight contests.
In a weak NFC East, that is so up and down, the Eagles have shown the most stability on both sides of the ball. As long as they take care of business, they will see themselves earn a playoff berth, and a home playoff game in Kelly’s first season as head coach.
