Recap all the action here.

Fan-Demonium: Sit Back; Enjoy The Ride - Tommy Lawlor,
Eagles wins usually make me sky-high, while losses are soul-crushing. This year is different. The team isn't a Super Bowl favorite. This isn't late in the Andy Reid era when I was desperate for him to win a title. This is the beginning of the Kelly era. I'm curious to see what he and the team will do. I still go nuts during the games. We all do that. The difference is that after a game, I'm able to take a deep breath and relax. I didn't buy into the hype after the opening win and I'm not feeling the gloom and doom of the last two weeks. I think I'll go back to being that way in future years, when the Eagles get back to being an elite team.

NFL Unlikely To Investigate Chiefs For Faking Injuries - Tim McManus, Birds 24/7
This has become a recurring theme through the Eagles’ first three games. A player goes down with cramps, the up-tempo drive runs into a red light, and it’s impossible to know for sure whether everything is on the up-and-up. Asked if the league is looking into the conduct of Kansas City at all following Thursday’s game, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello replied: "I’m not aware of that."

All-22: One Play Kelly Will Steal From Reid - Sheil Kapadia, Birds 24/7
On two separate occasions, the Chiefs got the Eagles with the exact same play on third-and-long.

Eagles' top pick experiencing some growing pains - Zach Berman, Inquirer
The Eagles invested the No. 4 overall pick in April's draft on Lane Johnson and inserted him into the starting lineup before the first preseason game. But they knew that Johnson's development required patience, because one of the draws to Johnson was how he projects, not how he'd play in Week 3 of his rookie season. The Eagles are experiencing those growing pains.

Pass defense remains a major issue for Eagles - Reuben Frank, CSN Philly
They still haven’t faced Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers or Tony Romo, but the Eagles have allowed 1,021 passing yards, or 340 per game. The 969 net passing yards they’ve allowed is 16th-most in NFL history through three games, 116 more than any previous defense in Eagles history and 451 more than last year’s horrible unit.

Four Reasons Why the Eagles Shouldn't Panic - FanSpeak
The Eagles have lost two home games which always is rough to start the season, but they still can succeed this season, given a favorable schedule and a high powered offense. The Eagles still have games versus the Raiders, Buccaneers, Lions, Cardinals and Vikings, none of whom appear to be extremely tough so far this season. They also have 5 games against the division, none of whom appear to be big threats. If the Eagles can win 8 of those remaining games, they would have 9 wins and would be at least 4-2 in the division for any tie breaking purposes. Even if a 9-7 record isn't good enough for division or wildcard, that would be a really good season for the Eagles. they would have doubled their win total, been in the playoff race until the end, and set up a promising future.
