Jason Kelce explains what Eagles must do better: 'Really sloppy game for us'


The Philadelphia Eagles’ start to the 2023 season started with a win, but it was not exactly a confidence builder as they barely squeaked by the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Eagles center Jason Kelce, who joined the “WIP Morning Show” on Wednesday was clear that the team, particularly the offense, needs to play better.

“Obviously, [it was a] really sloppy game for us,” Kelce said. “First quarter I thought we did some good things, but once we got up 16 we started stalling and give credit to New England, they adjusted, started mixing it up and throwing some things we hadn’t seen before.

“But we gotta adjust better, we gotta communicate better, we gotta execute better. Across the board it’s always good to play poorly and still get a W. We all know that could have very easily not been a win.”

The Eagles are certainly being put to the test on how quickly they can make those necessary adjustments as they host the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football this week.

“Can’t dwell on it that much,” Kelce said. “Monday we’re right away focused on Minnesota. Position coaches focus a little bit on things that need to be corrected. I think Nick [Sirianni]’s whole message [is] we can’t let these things stall us out, have to make adjustments – the things that make Nick so frustrated or really any coach are things that are stupid. Substitution things happening in the game – that can’t happen. Those little things almost ended up costing us the game. … most of the time Nick is very much let’s just let’s make corrections and move forward. Not emotion-filled as he usually is.”
