Game Analysis for Philadelphia Eagles

Pass Offense: Nick Foles came nowhere close to his seven-touchdown performance from the previous week. Yet he still managed to throw for three touchdowns without an interception on just 18 pass attempts. 

Run Offense: LeSean McCoy was tremendous on the final drive, and he finished the game with 25 carries for 155 yards, more than six yards per carry. Foles added 38 yards. 

Pass Defense: Third-string quarterback Scott Tolzien moved the ball well against the Eagles but he threw an interception in the end zone that proved to be costly. 

Run Defense: Eddie Lacy carried 24 times for just 73 yards, a shade over three yards per carry. His longest run was just 11 yards. 

Special Teams: Mason Crosby missed two field goals to Alex Henery's one.

Coaching: Chip Kelly called a great game, especially in the second half. Foles threw just 18 passes, while the Eagles attempted 37 runs. They kept the ball for the final nine-and-a-half minutes of the game.

First-Half Analysis for Philadelphia Eagles

Pass Offense: Nick Foles doesn't look particularly sharp, and he's not as good as his numbers would suggest. His 55-yard touchdown to DeSean Jackson was aided by a pair of Green Bay defenders falling down. 

Run Offense: LeSean McCoy ripped off his first 20-yard run since Week 3 and he has 41 yards on just nine carries. 

Pass Defense: Backups Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien have completed 20 of 28 passes for 209 yards but they haven't been able to get the Packers a touchdown, thanks to a Brandon Boykin interception in the end zone. 

Run Defense: Eddie Lacy, James Starks and John Kuhn have carried 19 times but they've collected just 59 yards, a shade over three yards per carry. 

Special Teams: Alex Henery missed a field goal, but Mason Crosby missed two. 

Coaching: Chip Kelly blew it by not challenging on the 36-yard reception to Boykin, and his play-calling hasn't been the best. The Eagles have scored just 10 points.
