Jason Kelce showed early on what the Eagles like in him. On a third and one on the first drive of the game, LeSean McCoy took a direct snap and followed blocks by Kelce and Evan Mathis, who each pulled to get out in front of the back. Kelce blocked a linebacker in space, opening room for Shady.
Ex-Eagle Quintin Mikell might have saved a touchdown on the Eagles first drive. On a first down run, McCoy reversed field and beat every Ram to the sideline - except for Mikell who dragged Shady down after a three yard gain. If he didn't make the stop, McCoy might have gone all the way.
