Chip Kelly's squad claimed a share of first place in the NFC East after defeating the Giants, 27-7, on Monday night.
Here's what the Eagles coach had to say after the game:
- On pressuring Eli Manning: "Well, it's twofold because coverage leads to it. So we knew in the quick passing game that we had to get up tighter in coverage and that makes him hold the ball a little bit longer. So I thought our guys did a really good job from a coverage standpoint. Aside from really that first drive, we were just off a little bit in that first drive, but they did a better job in coverage which leads to him holding on to the ball a little bit longer. And then I thought our D-Line, especially the front four, got to him. It wasn't a real big blitz game for us, just because the ball is out so quick and you don't want to leave too many voids in behind, so we had to play well in coverage and then the coverage allows the rush to get home."
- On slowing down Odell Beckahm Jr. in the second half: "Billy (Billy Davis) and (defensive backs coach) Cory (Undlin) and those guys did a really good job of scheming it. We tried to get him doubled as much as possible and there was a lot of double coverage going on on Odell."
- On taking Shane Vereen out of the game: "You know when he's in there, he's a big part of - it's almost like Eli quickly goes to who his first read is and it's one of the wide receivers or the tight end and then gets to the back. So I thought our linebackers did a really good job in coverage on the back."
