PASS OFFENSE: After two sterling performances, Mike Vick fell to earth hard against a Chiefs defense that did a great job of pressuring him and blanketing his receivers.

Grade: D

RUN DEFENSE: The Chiefs didn’t run the ball a lot but when they did, the Eagles did a good job on them. Jamaal Charles was held to 19 yards on nine carries in the first three quarters.

Grade:B-plus

PASS DEFENSE: The Eagles’ pass rush was much better against the Chiefs. Than it was last week against the Charges. But they did a poor job defending Chiefs wide receiver Donnie Avery and Charles, who combined for 200-plus receiving yards. 

Grade: C

SPECIAL TEAMS:  Damaris Johnson muffed a punt early in the game that set up a Kansas City field goal. Alex Henery missed a 48-yard field goal attempt in the second half

Grade:C-minus

OVERALL: The ad Michael Vick showed up last night. Interceptions. Poor decision-making. An offensive line that is supposed to be one of the best in the league did not handle the Chiefs’ pass rush very well.

Grade: D
