The Philadelphia Eagles have struggled on offense the last two weeks, scoring a total of three points in back-to-back losses. Questions have been raised whether the team's early-season production was short-lived, but head coach Chip Kelly took exception to the idea that his scheme has been figured out.
Kelly's offense was hailed for its rapid play-calling and ability to keep defenses off balance, but has come down to earth, falling to 19th in points scored despite moving the ball well. The team's primary issue has been at quarterback, but it's not the only problem.
Michael Vick left Sunday's game after he aggravated a hamstring injury that forced him to miss two weeks. The team turned to Matt Barkley, who was unable to get the Eagles back on track in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. The team's only points came late in the game on a special teams error by punter Steve Weatherford.
It's expected that Nick Foles will return from injury soon, but that doesn't solve slowed production by LeSean McCoy or the Eagles' inability to pick up tough yards on third down. Philadelphia converted just 23 percent of third-down opportunities over the last two weeks, causing Kelly's play-calling to be brought into question.
Kelly will hope that Foles brings consistency to the team, but there might not be enough time this season to make offensive adjustments.
