The Eagles offense is offensive

The Philadelphia Eagles have had one of the more prolific offenses in the league this season, but they were nowhere to be found in Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

The offense had four drives of three yards or less. They're also doing this against the Cowboys, who are without pass rusher DeMarcus Ware.

To add injury to insult, the Eagles are having problems staying healthy. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson briefly left with an ankle injury, but came back into the game. Their biggest loss came shortly afterwards, when quarterback Nick Foles went into the locker room with an undisclosed issue. Since Michael Vick is already out, the Eagles are forced to start rookie Matt Barkley, who is making his first appearance of the season.

Head coach Chip Kelly has never been shutout in his entire career, either at college or the NFL level. That could change today if the Eagles can't find a pulse on offense.
