"I felt like it was a home game with all of the (Eagles fans)," quarterback
It wasn't just the Eagles players who took notice of their brethren in the stands. Even head Coach Chip Kelly was taken aback at just how many Eagles fans were in attendance for Sunday's game.
"I thought it was awesome," Kelly said in his post-game press conference. "They were fantastic. It's great to be able to go on the road and see that many jerseys and see that many people running around in green and white. I thought they were huge. Our players enjoyed it. It's awesome when you go on the road and see that kind of support."
The Eagles will finally come home next Sunday to take on the divisional-foe Dallas Cowboys. The game could have a major influence on a potential playoff race down the road, with first place in the NFC East on the line. For Kelly and the rest of the Eagles, the fan support on the road has been tremendous, but the team is looking forward to finally coming back home and playing in front of a home-town crowd.
"That was unbelievable," Kelly said of the Eagles fans that made the trip to Tampa. "You go into a foreign, away stadium and you listen to the crowd chanting us on like that and it was awesome. I want to give them credit. It's great when we go on the road to see all of those Eagles fans running around. We've been successful for the last two weeks in row, and now we get to go home and play back in front of everybody back at (Lincoln Financial Field)."
