Eagles 39, Saints 17

Eagles on same page all around

PHILADELPHIA — All those playmakers Chip Kelly acquired made plays in the same game.

Sam Bradford overcame two red-zone interceptions and threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns and Ryan Mathews and DeMarco Murray each rushed for touchdowns as the Eagles routed the Saints.

Bradford, Murray and Mathews were key offseason additions when Kelly took control of personnel decisions and made massive changes.

"There's a lot of playmakers on offense, a lot of new parts," Murray said. "I think everyone is getting a feel for each other."

Defensive end Fletcher Cox forced two fumbles on sacks to help the Eagles snap a three-game losing streak at home dating to last season.

New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees had three turnovers leading to 17 points for Philadelphia.
