The Philadelphia Eagles moved to 5-1 on the 2014 NFL season with an exciting shutout victory over the NFC East rival New York Giants on Sunday night. There were plenty of highlights from the game, and now you can watch those with some special additional commentary. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly and quarterback Nick Foles were both mic'd up for the game. There were some pretty good soundbytes.

I'm not able to embed the video here, so you have to *click this link* in order to watch the clip yourself. It's worth your time.

The highlights:

• Interesting conversation to start off the clip.

Chip: We got a good group of guys, Jordan.

Jordan: Oh my god. Yeah, they've been great. Very well to me.

Chip: You know why? Because culture wins football.

Jordan: That's what I was going to say. It's a completely different culture here.

Chip: Culture will beat scheme every day.

Chip is talking to Eagles practice squad safety Jordan Kocavs here.

It's clear that Kelly really does value culture. It's evident in the players he's acquired. And released...

• Zach Ertz touchdown catch and celebration. Along with Mark Sanchez's analysis of the throw: "That's a great ball, bro."

• Nick Foles: "Hey, I'm going to be under center on this. We're getting... personal down there." (Todd Heremans gives Foles a strange look)

• James Casey touchdown. Chip Kelly loses his shoe in celebration! (click here to play GIF)

• Sanchez (chewing) to Foles: "You should try the chicken tenders. They're good."

Sanchez once ate a hot dog on the sidelines while with the Jets. Now chicken tenders in Philly? Where the heck is this guy getting food from?

• Chip complaining to an official about a holding penalty that wasn't called.

"That's a hold! Throw the hold. You see the hold? Did you see the hold? It's a big hold on that one. It's been a long day though.  … I don't really see anything. I just hear guys behind me say it, so…"

• Chip keeping players on their sleep schedule:

"Boys, let's go. Let's get in the locker room. It's late!"

• The laugh Chip makes as he jumps onto Jason Peters' back.
