Live Stream Jacksonville Jaguars at Philadelphia Eagles

on

Chip Kelly and his Philadelphia Eagles will host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Philadelphia this weekend. The Eagles will rely on NFL rushing champion LeSean McCoy  and quarterback Nick Foles  to lead the way. McCoy is taking on a Jaguars defense which was fourth worst against the run last season, allowing 131.8 yards per game as the team finished 4-12 in Gus Bradley’s coaching debut. The

Eagles look to improve from a 10-6 season last year, but Kelly is ready to start his second season for the Eagles.

“Obviously it’s year two and we have a bunch of guys that have been around us and we have been around them so you feel like you’re a little bit closer in terms of what we are trying to get accomplished,” Kelly said. “But you’re excited to get going here. (The games) are for real. They count.”

Foles came on to set an NFL record for touchdown-to-interception ratio with 27 TD passes and two INTs. He threw for 2,891 yards in 13 games, 10 starts, in his second NFL season, and his league-best 119.2 passer rating was third-highest in league history.

McCoy feels like he can have an even better year than last year when he gained 2146 yards from scrimmage.

“Sometimes I get wrapped up in my God-gifted ability instead of actually doing the fundamental things,” McCoy said. “Reading my keys, all the small things that you get away with because of your natural talent. But sometimes if you let the play develop and then use the other stuff, it makes me better.”

Chad Henne  Remains the starter for the Jaguars, however most observers feel like it’s just a matter of time before rookie Blake portals gets his feet wet.

“Gus and I have sat down many times and he said I’m the guy,” Henne said. “Until they tell me otherwise, I just go out there and prepare like I’m the starter and play well.

Top receiver Cecil Shorts III sat out much of the preseason due to a hamstring problem, which also kept rookie Allen Robinson sidelined for most of camp. Fellow second-round pick Marqise Lee, though, has looked good and is expected to contribute immediately.
