The Philadelphia Eagles picked up their fourth loss of the 2014 NFL season on Sunday with a loss to the the Seattle Seahawks by a final score of 24-14.

The Eagles dropped to 9-4 on the season.

Now that the game is over, let's assign a letter grade.

Overall grade: Shitty

Pardon the language, but according to LeSean McCoy, that's the word Eagles head coach Chip Kelly used to describe Philadelphia's performance in the team's loss to Seattle. It's an accurate assessment. The Eagles just weren't very good.

Offense: F

The offense only managed to gain a total of 139 yards on 45 plays for an average of 3.1 yards per play. Philadelphia was totally outmatched by a Seahawks defense that features a lot of talent and has played really well in recent weeks. Mark Sanchez finished with only 96 yards on 10/20 passing (50%) for an average of 4.8 yards per attempt. He also threw two touchdowns to one interception. McCoy couldn't get anything going on the ground. He only managed to gain 50 yards on 17 attempts for an average of 2.9.

Defense: C-

The Philadelphia defense allowed a lot of yards: 440 overall. It took 85 plays to reach that number, however, for an average of 5.2 per play. The defense struggled to contain the elusive Russell Wilson and allowed too many big plays in the secondary (what's new?). To the defense's credit, they did hold Marshawn Lynch in check with only 86 yards on 23 carries. The defense was also put in a terrible position on Philadelphia's first drive following half-time when McCoy fumbled in Seattle scoring territory.

Special Teams: C

The Eagles didn't really do much on special teams. Josh Huff almost fumbled a kickoff return that he gained 46 yards on. Marcus Smith II did a good job stripping the ball from Jon Ryan following a bad snap on a Seattle punt attempt.
