The Eagles needed to go out Sunday and get an impressive win, and that is what they did. They looked good on both sides of the ball and Kevin Kolb was able to lead the team to a win. In doing so, Kolb became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for over 300 yards his first two games.
LeSean McCoy looked great running the ball 20 times for 84 yards and scoring a touchdown. He also had a reception for nine yards.
DeSean Jackson and Brent Celek both had big games again. They both had over 100 yards receiving and were both able to find the endzone. Jackson just seems to make big plays every game and I hope the trend continues. Celek gets better and better every week and caught the most passes out of any Eagle on Sunday.
Jeremy Maclin did a nice job filling in for Kevin Curtis. A lot of pressure was taken off him by the way Jackson and Celek were playing, but he still managed to catch four passes for 33 yards.
Michael Vick did get to see action on the field but wasn’t a real big threat. It’s good that he got to get in and I’m expecting him to make some big plays down the road.
The defense played a terrific game again holding the Chiefs to under 200 yards of total offense. They sacked Cassel 3 times and despite not forcing a lot of turnovers, they didn’t allow the Chiefs to convert on any of their third down opportunities.
Many people will probably downplay this game as the Chiefs aren’t a very good football team. However, the Eagles won this game the way they were supposed to. They fired on all cylinders and it was a great victory.
