New-look Eagles had tough time in coach Chip Kelly's first month as NFL head coach

Peyton Manning dismantled the defense. The offense made too many mistakes. Special teams allowed two touchdowns.

With performances like that from all three phases, it's no wonder the Philadelphia Eagles lost 53-20 to the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Yet coach Chip Kelly found a bright side.

"I think we did some good things," Kelly said Monday. "I think offensively we moved the ball and there's correctable mistakes there. I thought we competed on the defensive side of the ball, and I think we left them on the field a little bit too much in the third quarter."

Either way, Philadelphia (1-3) has lost three straight and is scuffling as they head into a game vs. the New York Giants (0-4) on Sunday.
