Philadelphia Eagles: 5 Individual Matchups to Watch Against San Diego Chargers
Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles came away with a resounding 33-27 win last week against the Washington Redskins, one that kicked off the Chip Kelly era in remarkable fashion.

Philadelphia jumped to a 26-7 halftime lead, utilizing a highly effective up-tempo offense with which the Redskins simply couldn’t keep up.

Running back LeSean McCoy racked up 184 yards on a career-high 31 carries, scoring one and averaging nearly six yards per rush. Michael Vick accounted for over 250 total yards and three scores, and the defense played aggressive football against a shaky Robert Griffin III.

The Eagles look to continue their success against the San Diego Chargers, a team with one of the worst rosters in the league. San Diego nearly beat a talented Houston team in Week 1, but blew a late 28-7 lead behind some poor decision-making from quarterback Philip Rivers.

Kelly should be able to outmatch Mike McCoy’s Chargers. The Eagles are home, they’re a vastly superior team, and they have a plethora of offensive weapons that would be tough for any team to stop. The following five matchups are the biggest for Philadelphia to move to 2-0 for the second straight season.
