Eagles pull within seven after quick-strike drive

The Eagles’ go-go offense may not be good at holding leads, but it’s pretty effective at erasing deficits.

Down 23-9 in the fourth quarter, the Eagles drove 78 yards in 1:21 to cut the margin in half.

The drive was capped by a 41-yard touchdown sprint from LeSean McCoy, who appeared to injure his leg late in the first half but returned in the third quarter.

The Eagles would be in position to win the game by a point if they hadn’t tried a goofy “swinging gate” fake after their first touchdown of the game.  As it stands, they need seven to tie.

    Well just to amend my earlier comments today, now I have seen three games from the Eagles where their offense hasn’t impressed me. Still 6 minutes left to make me eat some words tonight.

    NFL is too greedy. My Eagles stunk tonight, but Thursday night football is a terrible product every week.
    Teams do not have time to prepare and the players are not healed from the prior week.

    “False start, everybody but the center”

    Story of the game.

    Looks like the Eagles came back to earth. They should’ve knew that a college coach wasn’t going to turn this team around.

    I’m not a big believer in this offense. These are bigger faster guys. This isn’t college

    Dear large market teams and media, sorry KC is winning. I know it kills you having to cover the Chiefs, or since they’re winning, I’m sure your headlines will switch covering the losers.

    Andy Reid looks like the Kool Aid Man.

    Yea – okay.
    They are 1-2 and look that way.
    Appears the first game and the OVER-REACTION to it was just that.

    Vick’s one of the boys though so it’s ok. Popularity contest.

    Saw a LOT of Brandon Flowers and other Def. KC players writhing in pain on the field, only to come right back in the game after they had effectively slowed down the game. I am not a fan of either of these teams, so this isn’t a homer call. They are going to have to figure out a way to stop the acting, and allow the game to move at the pace the offense sets. Each team has an opportunity to control the speed of their offense…. so stop cheating to control the opponents. Saw a player during a game last week “go down” and grab 3 different body parts before his trainers could make the field. They surrounded him so closely, you couldn’t see what they were looking at, then he walked off the field and was right back out next play. This type of thing is getting old.
