Game Analysis for Philadelphia Eagles

Pass Offense: Nick Foles played one of the best games a quarterback has ever played. No exaggeration. He completed 22 of 28 passes for 406 yards and a single-game record-tying seven touchdown passes. He had a perfect passer rating. 

Run Offense: LeSean McCoy struggled again, rushing 12 times for just 44 yards. Bryce Brown picked up the slack, carrying seven times for 54 yards. 

Pass Defense: Terrelle Pryor looked like a running quarterback who hasn't learned how to read defenses. He threw for 288 yards but he was intercepted twice. 

Run Defense: Backup Rashad Jennings gashed the Eagles for 102 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. Pryor added 94 yards on 10 runs. 

Special Teams: DeSean Jackson provided a nice spark on punt returns and Sebastian Janikowski nailed a long field goal at the end of the first half. 

Coaching: Chip Kelly called all the right plays and took Nick Foles out at exactly the right time, following his epic seven-touchdown performance. 


First-Half Analysis for Philadelphia Eagles

Pass Offense: Nick Foles is playing the best football of his life. He's completed 15 of 19 passes for 260 yards and four touchdowns. His passer rating is perfect and he's spread the ball around to six different receivers. 

Run Offense: LeSean McCoy can't get anything going with just five rushing yards on four carries, but Bryce Brown has ripped off 51 yards on four touches. Foles has 13 yards, too. 

Pass Defense: Terrelle Pryor hasn't been bad but he's not going to beat the Eagles with his arm. He's completed 12 of 21 passes for 167 yards, which is average. 

Run Defense: Pryor is killing the Eagles on the ground, as he's run seven times for 65 yards. Rashad Jennings and Darren McFadden have combined for 51 yards. 

Special Teams: No special teams plays have impacted the game. DeSean Jackson returning punts gives the Eagles a much-needed spark, even with his 15-yard facemasking penalty. 

Coaching: Chip Kelly made the right decision starting Nick Foles over Matt Barkley, and Foles has responded by leading the Eagles to 28 points in the first half.
