The Philadelphia Eagles and San Diego Chargers were both strong offensively in their week one NFL Monday Night Football games, but only one walked away with a victory. They will meet up in a clash of east versus west today in an NFL football week two game on CBS. Online live streaming instructions can be found below.
Eagles coach Chip Kelly brought a new vibe to the Eagles offense and came out atacking against the Redskins with a no huddle offense that was sharp, quick, and deadly to the Redskins defense. Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy led the way, with McCoy carrying for a career-high 31 times and 184 yards, and the game was won by halftime.
In the second the Eagles seemed to lose a step as the run-and-gun caught up to them. McCoy was seen multiple times catching his breath and the offense was much slower and less effective. The Redskins eventually cut the lead to six while the Eagles offense seemed to check out early and start thinking about the Chargers.
San Diego also has a new coach and like Kelly, he was able to get his team’s offense moving in week one. Also like the Eagles, the Philip Rivers-led offense slowed down as the game progresses and that eventually cost them a win. With Philly dismantling of the Redskins, expectations are the Eagles will do the same to the Chargers.
Rivers was 14 for 29 passing and 195 yards, neither of which are spectacular numbers. In fact, he put up the second-lowest completion percentage of week one at 48.3. On the flip side, Rivers was able to throw four touchdown passes and put points on the board. He better keep his eyes on an Eagles defense that made Robert Griffin III look dazed and confused most of the game, including forcing three sacks and two interceptions.
Philadelphia is heavily favored in this game and most online polls have them as the overwhelming favorite. I tend to agree; playing in Philly is no easy feat and Vick’s offense will be even more charged up in their home opener. I predict a close game, closer than most expect, but ultimately an Eagles victory.
