Professional football's latest pioneer oversaw an offense that set a breakneck pace, running the second-most plays through the first quarter and the first half of any team since 1991.
» Piled up more yards (341) than 15 teams totaled in their Sunday games.
» Recorded 21 first downs, just five shy of their 2012 season high for an entire game.
Although the Eagles raced out to a 26-7 halftime lead with a balanced attack that had Vick on pace for nearly 400 passing yards, the tides turned in the second half.
With a comfortable lead and Vick limping through an apparent groin injury sustained at the end of a 36-yard scramble, Kelly admittedly took his foot off the gas pedal too early in the third quarter.
While Griffin finally was regaining a semblance of his 2012 form, Kelly shelved his own innovative passing schemes to saddle up McCoy as a workhorse.
Side-stepping would-be tacklers like a joystick, McCoy set a career high with 31 carries while coming within 1 yard of his best rushing total. Philadelphia's 249 yards on the ground were nearly 80 more than its previous best Week 1 effort.
