PHILADELPHIA -- It took the Philadelphia Eagles just 13 seconds to wipe a terrible loss from memory.
"We talk about starting fast, but you can't start faster than that," coach Chip Kelly said. "It takes the wind out of the sails for the other team."
Huff ran up the right side, broke a tackle inside the 30, cut to the right sideline and stiff-armed a defender at the Titans 20 on his way to the end zone for his first career TD.
His return was the longest in franchise history and the 10th non-offensive touchdown for Philadelphia this season.
"We were in the third quarter and fans are screaming about the Dallas game," Sanchez said. "It's obviously a big rivalry. I'll get a good introduction to it this week."
McCoy had a 2-yard TD run in the second quarter. Sanchez fired a 14-yard TD pass to James Casey in the third quarter.
Mettenberger tossed a 68-yard pass to Walker to start the next drive to set up Shonn Greene's 2-yard TD run, cutting the deficit to 20-14.
Cody Parkey kicked field goals of 36, 26, 35, 40 and 50 yards but his 49-yard attempt hit the post at the end of the first half to snap his successful streak at 17.
McCoy, the reigning NFL rushing champion, hasn't looked the same this year with his yards-per-carry average down more than one yard. He was irritated this week by questions from reporters suggesting he lost a step. So, McCoy responded with his third 100-yard performance in the past six games. He had a season-best 53-yard run.
"Everybody has their opinion, but the guys in the locker room know what's up," McCoy said. "But that's fine. When the running game isn't going well, I'll take the blame."
"We just weren't able to protect the ball like we wanted to," Mettenberger said. "We needed more points, more first downs."
