The Eagles won 20-17, but QB Kevin Kolb had a disappointing game.
Said Kolb afterward, “That wasn’t quite as sharp as we would have liked it, for sure. There’s a lot of details we have to clean up. The shining light of the whole thing is that it’s 0-0 come here in next two weeks, when we start fresh.”
The Eagles won when third-string QB Mike Kafka hit WR Riley Cooper on an 18-yard touchdown pass with 23 seconds left.
Eagles coach Andy Reid said the offensive line played well.
Eagles RB Mike Bell finally got on the field and admitted he was rusty.
The Chiefs’ starting defense gave up an early touchdown but generally looked good.
Said Chiefs coach Todd Haley, “They say in boxing, it’s not how hard you punch, it’s how you react after you’ve been punched. We took a couple of pretty good body blows, might have been a couple of good head shots, haymakers. But guys fought back. We made plays, finally got something going.”
Chiefs QB Matt Cassel threw a pass that bounced off TE Tony Moeaki’s hands and landed in the arms of Eagles CB Trevard Lindley.
Said Cassel afterward, “I think this time of year, especially in the preseason, we’re trying to figure out exactly what we are.”
Said Chiefs LB Andy Studebaker, “Obviously we have some things to improve on. We obviously need a little more pressure and there are things I need to work on personally. We will get better.”
