The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Washington Redskins 33-27 in Chip Kelly’s debut on Monday Night Football.
The Eagles offense ran the Washington defense ragged all night long, as Michael Vick went 15-25 for 203 and two touchdowns while adding 52 yards on the ground and rushing for one score.
Although the Eagles offense will be the story, the defense played very well for most of the night for the Birds. Second year linebacker Mychal Kendricks was dominant leading the way with 10 tackles. Kendricks was all over the field, routinely hitting Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III and crushing any ballcarrier that came across his area.
Cary Williams was spectacular for the Eagles in registering an interception, a sack, as well as providing stellar defense against Washington receiver Pierre Garcon. The defense as a whole created three turnovers, just ten less than in the 2012 season.
LeSean McCoy led the way for the Eagles, rushing for 184 yards on 31 carries and one touchdown. DeSean Jackson had seven receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown.
