for them and certainly performed. jamie apody has more on bradford's day. >> there's been a knock on sam bradford and leadership in creativity and gather the entire offense in the showers before the game as bradford did and for the privacy tell them it's time to go. they have the talent and they can turn this season around. results, eagles racked up over 500 yards of total offense and bradford had best game as a bird. >> perfectly placed foot bat by sam bradford and that's execution. >> something we have to do. >> it's not going to be like this every week to know with we are clicking we can go out and do that it gives you confidence to do it more often. >> he looks, firdz, intercep intercepted. >> imagine what could have been been. bradford threw not one but two interceptions in the end zone in the first half and to a team that did not pick up the past
all season. >> when you do you have to forget it and move sglon guys didn't make the plays they needed to receivers and fight ends we had dronz at well that doesn't help the game. i thought from the gecko we played with a big chip on our shoulder that set up us. >> disparity from first half to second half bradford is crazy. pass rating is 40 points higher after half time and thrown twice as many touchdowns. if sam could figure out a way to play a complete game watch-out. ducis and brandon back to you. >> jamie thank you so much. much more eagles talk ahead we'll hear from the big hero on defense and fletcher cox is real knife nightmare for drew brees and company and sal de palantonio has what opens them brees and company and sal de palantonio has what opens them up.

>> injured lower leg if 2nd quarter and did not return. receiver said after the game he will have mri tomorrow. something to keep an eye on. defense as you mentioned brandon four forced turnovers today what areas did you feel like you would like to be successful in come into this game. >> we felt like playing against would be successful that's something we preach all the time we have to make one dimensional team that's what we did today. they threw for a lot of yards today. but, as you said, turnovers took over. and we had fun out there man. >> fletcher cox sonl for couple turnovers and did not make pro bowl last year and you see them every day in practice and what kind of beast is he. >> it shoypz on film and maybe comes to work every day and somebody who is trustworthy who the coaches are it goes to work every day and that's what you want as defense somebody you can count sglon jamie apody caught up with cox after the
game. >> player of the game fletcher cox when is the last time had you three shots in one game. >> never, never in my career three sacks in one game and pretty excited for me and great thing for this team. >> what does it mean for you as a unit especially given last week you didn't have a sack it didn't come. >> well, i mean, justs aa units turnovers are big today. and sacks you know pretty big for me and you know, everybody got hands on the ball today which is a good thing. >> what does it mean for the confidence of this team going forward to get a huge win like this with the giants coming in next week. >> it was great, everybody got edge and everybody had that about them from a game last week. and you know the guys came out and you can feel the energy on the sideline. it was like you know some kind of -- and guys we put in work this week and shotd fans what we can do. >> did you teach him how to dance like that? >> nah, he dances like that
all the time. >> all right. let's move to the other side of the ball. offensive line is beat up. literally. a lot of injuries and critics have been all over the offensive line. how would you say that unit performed today. >> i think that it performed i mean real g they worked together. whatever chip said last week lit a fire under everybody so i mean many was excited to see a complete full four quarter gam game. >> 186 yards rushing for the eagles today. 5.5 average on the ground and the team needed this and so did offensive line. >> yeah, feels g we needed this win at home. the fans have been needing it and just for us to get our spirits up. we knew this was important and i don't want to say was a must win but it kind of was and you know we prepared like it. and now we have to prepare like this every week. >> espn sal palantonio offers insight he said change today was the key.
>> make no mistake about it chip kelly offense is working now because chip kelly changed this" fence. and the most important change, running the ball with quarterback under enter and after the game de marco murry said it helps offensive lien and it it helps the running back have vision and get ahead of steam going. two more important changes on offense in the passing game. one, those quick hitters get the ball out of sam bradford hands quickly and that the rush cannot get on top of it and then move that launch point and boot action and roll out and allow the deep pass as those crossing patterns deep in the field to develop. in my opinion i think this is most important win of the chip kelly era. one stops bleeding and two gives this team momentum and going forward with two nationally televised prime time games coming up. >> brandon, ducis, back to you. >> all right. coming up next a check around
