I would not want to be Eagles head coach Chip Kelly who has a number of difficult roster decisions to make over the coming days.
This was by far Philadelphia’s best defensive game, yielding just 300 yards of offense, with 42 of them coming during the Jets lone highlight in the third quarter on a deep pass play from Jets quarterback Tajh Boyd to wide receiver Clyde Gates.
