INDIANAPOLIS — Philadelphia done all a right calls Monday night.
In a end, Andrew Luck and a Colts done too many mistakes.
The Eagles incited dual second-half turnovers, including an irregular late interception of Luck, into 14 points and eventually done a 36-yard margin idea as time lapsed to kick a Colts 30-27.
“I usually saw a round and went for that. Sometimes we get calls, and that’s nothing of a concern,” Eagles cornerback Malcolm Jenkins pronounced of a game-changing interception. “We usually know that was a good play for a invulnerability during that time and for a group during that time. Something that we unequivocally indispensable that authorised us to go down and measure and put us in position to win.”
The Eagles (2-0) have now won twice this deteriorate by overcoming 14-point deficits in a second half — usually a fourth group in a NFL over a final 30 years to do that in uninterrupted weeks, according to STATS.
Sure, there was copiousness of credit to go around. From Jenkins’ pivotal play to Nick Foles’ restraint and Darren Sproles’ re-emergence as a Colts’ nemesis, all went right for a Eagles when it had to.
Foles finished 21 of 37 for 331 yards with one touchdown. Sproles ran 19 yards for a touchdown, restraining a measure during 20, and took a brief pass 51 yards down a margin to set adult a touchdown that tied a measure during 27, too.
“We felt like we had that all day long. Not all day prolonged yet we consider what they were giving us coverage-wise,” manager Chip Kelly pronounced of a 51-yarder. “When their rush is removing to you, we have to do something to annul a rush and we consider to annul a rush we have to use your shade diversion as a weapon.”
Here are some some-more things that happened Monday night.
WHAT WERE THEY THINKING: For a second true week, Andrew Luck left a diversion muttering about creation a “stupid” decision. This time, it was a third-down pass with 5:08 to play. Indy was already in field-goal operation for Adam Vinatieri and could have taken a 10-point lead. Instead, Luck’s pass was picked off and a Eagles gathering down a margin to tie a score.
STRANGE CALLS: Colts fans were angry no dwindle was thrown on a interception. Replays seemed to uncover Brandon Boykin grabbing T.Y. Hilton, a dictated receiver, before he had a possibility to make a catch. Two plays later, Colts reserve LaRon Landry was called for a 15-yard chastisement on a horse-collar tackle even yet replays seemed to uncover Landry pulling down LeSean McCoy by a jersey instead of putting his hands inside McCoy’s shoulder pads. The dual decisions helped Philadelphia rally, yet a Colts were discerning not to censure a officials for this loss.
SPROLES RETURNS: Philadelphia knew what Sproles could do when they got him during a offseason. They might not have satisfied how many time Sproles has spent befuddling a Colts until Monday night. The small, fleet, versatile curtain roughly single-handedly derailed Indy’s 2008 playoff run by heading San Diego to an overtime win. And he was a pivotal to Monday night’s comeback, too.
WALK IN THE PARK: Cody Parkey might have had a toughest pursuit in training stay — perplexing to kick out Adam Vinatieri for a mark on a Colts’ roster. But a Eagles were so tender they forced a Colts to revoke waivers on him and trade him to Philadelphia. After blank an early margin idea Monday, Parkey was income when it mattered most, creation a 36-yard margin idea twice (once as a Colts called timeout) to kick his former team.
BACK-TO-BACK: Indy (0-2) now contingency figure out how to miscarry after losing back-to-back regular-season games for a initial time in Luck or pitch Pagano eras. Both had done it 33 true games but dual true losses.
