Chip Kelly’s fast-paced offense that made a big splash in his coaching debut might be even better now.
The Philadelphia Eagles last walked off The Linc as victors on Sept. 30, 2012. Since that time they’ve suffered 10 straight losses in front of the home town crowd.
Nick Foles threw three touchdowns and ran for a fourth to lead the Eagles to a 31-20 victory over the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
