Happy to be finished answering questions about the team's losing streak at home, the Eagles in the locker room raved about the atmosphere at Lincoln Financial Field during the team's 24-16 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
"I think today was the loudest the fans have been," said defensive end
"I thought our crowd was fantastic," said head coach Chip Kelly. "They probably deserved it as much as anybody. They were into it the entire game. It was an awesome feeling. There was a lot of energy in that stadium and we needed every ounce of it. So it was awesome."
Throughout the first three quarters, the crowd of 69,144 was in celebration mode as the Eagles raced out to a 24-0. But when things got tight in the fourth quarter, especially with the Redskins driving in an attempt to tie the game in the game's final minutes, the crowd took their noise to another level.
"It's outstanding," said center
"That was big for us as a team, but great for the city," said tight end
