"Same thing on the kickoff return. I know what they were in, and I know what hole they hit. But I don't know what we were in at that point of time to say, 'Hey, we've got to make this adjust.' "
Kicker Alex Henery made two field goals, but he also missed one for the third consecutive week. He missed wide right on a 46-yard attempt. He made field goals of 25 yards and 35 yards.
Henery is 2 for 5 this season on field goals between 40 and 49 yards. He was 15 for 16 over the last two seasons.
Vick still the QB
Kelly said he has no intention of making a quarterback change and that Michael Vick played well on Sunday. Vick finished 14 of 27 for 248 yards and rushed for 41 yards. He had neither a touchdown nor a turnover.
"I do know this, and we got to get it addressed: We got to protect him better," Kelly said.
Vick said he "would like to have more time," but added that he'll "keep fighting with those guys each and every day."
Vick's message after the game was that the team needed to avoid a hangover from the loss. He said it took the Eagles two days to get over the Chiefs loss last week, and they need to move on more quickly. Kelly spoke to Vick about this last week, telling him that players follow his lead.
"It should burn. It should hurt because that's what it's supposed to do in this profession," Vick said. "But we have to find a way to get our juice back and our enthusiasm back and understand what's ahead of us, and we still control our own destiny."
Safety Earl Wolff started his first game on Sunday in place of Patrick Chung, who missed the game with a shoulder injury. Wolff had seven tackles.
Rookie tight end Zach Ertz made his first start because the Eagles started the game in a two-tight end set. Ertz recorded one catch for 38 yards.
Cornerback Roc Carmichael, who was signed last week, made his Eagles debut. He was active in place of Shaun Prater.
Defensive end Vinny Curry was active for the second consecutive week. He had two tackles.
Offensive linemen Dennis Kelly and Matt Tobin, defensive end Damion Square, quarterback Matt Barkley, and tight end Emil Igwenagu were inactive.
Both DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy left the game to be evaluated for injuries, but both returned. . . . Running back Chris Polk scored a touchdown on his first career carry.
