Exactly how fast was the Eagles' hurry-up in the first preseason game vs the Pats? - Jimmy Kempski, Philly.com
In the 2nd quarter of last night's preseason game against the Patriots, Chip Kelly tested out his hurry-up offense for the first time. It was during Nick Foles' second series, when the Eagles moved down the field and scored on a Bryce Brown TD run. There was a three-play stretch during that drive where the hurry-up really showed some life. Here's quick time breakdown of those three plays.
