Eagles vs. Chiefs: Live Game Grades and Analysis for Philadelphia

Bryn Swartz@eaglescentralSenior Writer IIISeptember 19, 2013

Andy Reid and the Chiefs improved to 3-0, defeating Chip Kelly's Eagles by a 26-16 score. 

Final Score: Kansas City 26, Philadelphia 16

Game Analysis for Philadelphia Eagles

Pass Offense: Michael Vick had a truly awful night. He completed 13 of 30 passes with two interceptions. The offense never came close to hitting a rhythm. 

Run Offense: LeSean McCoy was amazing, as usual. He overcame a potentially serious injury to rush 20 times for 158 yards and a touchdown. Michael Vick added five runs for 95 yards. 

Pass Defense: Alex Smith may have been king of the checkdown passes, but he made all the necessary throws and didn't commit a turnover. 

Run Defense: Jamaal Charles picked it up in the second half, finishing the game with 20 carries for 92 yards and a touchdown. 

Special Teams: Damaris Johnson's fumbled punt was inexcusable, as was Chip Kelly's botched two-point conversion attempt. Alex Henery missed another long field goal. That's two misses in two weeks. 

Coaching: It's hard to evaluate Chip Kelly when his quarterback commits so many turnovers. Kelly didn't do a good job, though. The most scrutinized play will be the embarrassing two-point conversion attempt.  

 

Halftime Analysis for Philadelphia Eagles

Pass Offense: Michael Vick is not having his best night. The 11-year veteran has completed 5 of 11 passes for 42 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. One was returned for a touchdown. He has misfired on a number of passes. 

Run Offense: LeSean McCoy carried 11 times for 66 yards before a potentially serious leg injury caused millions of heart attacks across the Philadelphia area. 

Pass Defense: It's hard to give the Eagles a lot of credit for stopping a quarterback like Alex Smith. They've failed on a couple of 3rd-and-longs, too.

Run Defense: Jamaal Charles is one of the best running backs in the league, but he hasn't gotten anything on Thursday night, carrying just six times for 14 yards. 

Special Teams: Damaris Johnson's fumbled punt was inexcusable, as was Chip Kelly's botched two-point conversion attempt. 

Coaching: Chip Kelly's offense hasn't impressed. The defense has played well, although Kansas City has its fair share of issues at quarterback. The missed two-point conversion attempt could prove costly in a close game.
