After coming out flat against the Minnesota Vikings last week on the road, the Philadelphia Eagles showed no signs of a setback as they dominated the Chicago Bears at Lincoln Financial Field 54-11. Here’s what we learned in the Eagles win:

 

The Eagles Are A Mentally Tough Team

The Philadelphia Eagles had absolutely nothing to play for this week. The Dallas Cowboys had defeated the Washington Redskins 24-23 earlier in the day, meaning that the Eagles could not wrap up the NFC East.

The Chicago Bears on the other hand could have wrapped up the NFC North with a win. However, the outcome made you think it was the Eagles that had the division on the line and not the Bears.

Last week the Eagles came out flat against the Minnesota Vikings and it came back to bite them as they unexpectedly lost 48-30. This week they came out hot scoring 21 points in the first quarter and were rewarded with a big victory.

The Eagles could have come out this week and played like they had nothing to play for. Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly could have rested his starters. However, Kelly made this a statement game, and showed that last week’s performance was a wake up call for his team.

    What I saw was a team effort. Everyone touched the ball. Avant, Ertz, Celek, Cooper, Jackson and of course McCoy/Brown. Nick spread the ball out and the D played unbelievably well against a potent Chicago offense. Regardless of playoffs this is very positive moving forward for Chip Kelly and the Eagles!
