Eagles suddenly look ordinary on offense


PHILADELPHIA (AP) Needing only a yard to score the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter, the Philadelphia Eagles failed twice.

Not so prolific.

Nick Foles struggled, LeSean McCoy hasn't been a factor and the rest of an offense that previously scored at will suddenly looks ordinary. A 26-21 loss to San Francisco on Sunday underscored many of Philadelphia's problems.

Coach Chip Kelly said Monday that he thinks some people are pressing. He says his team needs to settle down and go back to playing football.

Two special teams touchdowns and one defensive score gave the Eagles a 21-10 lead they couldn't hold against the 49ers because an offense that averaged 33.7 points in the first three weeks was shut out.

The Eagles (3-1) didn't even cross into San Francisco territory in the first 55 minutes.
