Here are some observations and ruminations about the Eagles-Steelers game:   PITTSBURGH - Tight end Brent Celek caught a clutch, 2-yard touchdown pass to put the Eagles ahead in the fourth quarter. Earlier in the game, however, with their offensive line battered and facing a blitz-happy Steelers defense, the Eagles had to keep Celek in to block. Celek provided a lot of help for left tackle Demetress Bell against linebacker James Harrison. But with Celek staying in, Michael Vick didn't have his second-leading receiver as an option.

TAMPA, Fla. - Brent Celek sustained a concussion on the first play from scrimmage in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Celek was helped off the field after a 1-yard catch and taken to the locker room for examination. He is the third key starter on the Eagles offense to suffer a concussion this season. Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy continue to sit with lingering concussions. There was no word after the game on the severity of Celek's concussion. "For him to go out, I'll tell you it was a pretty good [hit]

Here are some observations and ruminations about the Eagles-Saints game: NEW ORLEANS - Michael Vick's ninth interception of the season - and his second pick-six - was both his fault and that of Brent Celek. The veteran tight end ran an "out" route just shy of the goal line, and he had a slight step on the Saints defender Monday night. But Vick led Celek too much. Celek, who may have been held, half-heartedly stuck a hand out and deflected the ball into the hands of New Orleans cornerback Patrick Robinson.

All season, the Eagles have been waiting for a major contribution from their tight end. If you had Brent Celek coming up with one of the top performances all season at that position, you win the pool. With L.J. Smith inactive for yesterday's game with the Cowboys, and Smith's replacement, Matt Schobel, taken out on the first series on a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit by Dallas safety Ken Hamlin, Celek was the last available tight end on the Eagles' roster. That meant a lot more offensive snaps, and it meant the rookie from Cincinnati - normally a blocker - would become one of Donovan McNabb's top targets.

It's not going to make for a good argument if the Eagles and DeSean Jackson ever hold contract extension talks, but the wide receiver could point to Brent Celek's resurgence this season for proof of his worth. Jackson's loss has been Celek's gain. The tight end had a career day as the Eagles held on to dear playoff life and trounced the New York Jets, 45-19, on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Jackson not so much. The pregame storyline on Jackson was that he needed to put on a show against the Jets' all-world cornerback Darrelle Revis with his future in Philadelphia in great doubt.

EVERY SUMMER, Brent Celek and his brother Garrett, now a rookie tight end with the 49ers, get together and talk football. Now in his sixth NFL season, Brent plays the role of mentor. If he is as good a teacher as Garrett says he is, he will probably spare his brother any lessons born of this season of Eagles football. Like many of his Eagles teammates, this year has been one to forget for Celek. Whether dropping passes or absorbing bone-crunching hits, the veteran tight end has not been his reliable self in months.

Brent Celek enjoyed a career day Sunday as the Eagles routed the Seattle Seahawks, 26-7. But even though Celek caught six passes for 131 yards in place of the injured L.J. Smith, Eagles coach Andy Reid insisted yesterday that there is no tight end controversy. When he is healthy, Smith still will be the starter, Reid said. Smith missed Sunday's game with a concussion he suffered Oct. 26 in a 27-14 win against the visiting Atlanta Falcons. "L.J. is a starter when he comes back, and hopefully it works out for him with his [concussion]

DeSean Jackson, the Eagles' best wide receiver and the NFL's leading punt returner, left Sunday's game with a concussion that has made his status questionable at best for the team's Week 13 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Brent Celek, the starting tight end, has a sprained thumb that seemed to be a real problem for him during the Eagles' 27-24 win over the Washington Redskins. Brodrick Bunkley, one of the team's starting defensive tackles, is hobbled by a sprained ankle.

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek spent a recent Friday evening discussing the distinct qualities of his modern, luxury accessories line Revisit. The manbags are fashioned from soft chocolate brown leather and lined with hand-dyed indigo-blue cotton canvas. Arrowheads dangling from clutch zippers are carved from antique brass. The leather closures are affixed to laptop sleeves and journals with oxidized copper rivets. But of the 16-piece collection on display at the Four Seasons hotel suite, the iPhone case was clearly Celek's favorite.

The success that the Eagles have enjoyed this season under Chip Kelly has come with a delicious caveat. They're 10-6. They lead the NFL in rushing and yards-per-pass-attempt and rank second in total offense, and they've accomplished this with most of the same offensive personnel they had under Andy Reid. All of this productivity, and there's an argument to be made that the Eagles can and will be more potent in the years ahead once they acquire more "Chip Kelly guys" - players whom he and general manager Howie Roseman will have handpicked to fit Kelly's system.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Chip Kelly gambled. He lost. But he went back to his bread-and-butter, his zone read, his franchise tailback, his explosive running attack, and the Eagles won. Kelly had not yet been asked to win a game, not only of this magnitude, but of this type in his first season as the Eagles' coach. When the Eagles have won it has been either by a large margin or by them holding on by the skin of their teeth after they jumped out to a big lead. There were games that were tight and that the Eagles put away with strong fourth quarters on the road - against the Giants, the Buccaneers, and the Packers.

SO, HOW exactly do you explain 4-12 to 10-6? How do you explain how an Eagles team that lost 11 of its final 12 games last season by a combined score of 361-214 will host a first-round playoff game at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday night? While myriad factors have contributed to the Eagles' rags-to-riches turnaround, if you're looking for a single number to explain it, try 12. That's the Eagles' turnover differential, which happens to be the fourth best in the NFL this season.

Position-by-position grading of the Eagles after their 54-11 win over the Bears on Sunday, focusing on one player at each spot: OFFENSE Quarterback - A+ Nick Foles executed Chip Kelly's offense flawlessly. Only one of his 25 passes did not connect with an open receiver and it could be argued that Brent Celek dropped the lofted screen pass. The other incomplete passes were two that were thrown out of the back of the end zone to avoid sacks and one tossed into the ground at the feet of DeSean Jackson to avoid pressure.

APPARENTLY, conventional logic has no place in the Chip Kelly Experience. With virtually nothing to gain, it would have made sense last night for the Eagles to dispense to the Bears a healthy dose of Bryce Brown, Damaris Johnson, Allen Barbre, Brandon Graham, James Casey, and, what the heck, Matt Barkley; why risk even Michael Vick to injury? Instead, LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson, Jason Peters, Trent Cole, Brent Celek and Nick Foles kept their understudies in the wings. It was a heady gamble by Kelly, a first-year NFL coach known for innovation and for daring.

Brent Celek's late-game slide short of the end zone to seal Sunday's Eagles win drew praise from the coaches as an unselfish decision. The coaching staff has applauded the seventh-year tight end throughout this season. The curious part is that statistically, this is not among Celek's finest years with the Eagles. He has 25 catches for 348 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games, and is not among the NFL's top 10 tight ends in any of those categories. Yet coach Chip Kelly and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur habitually laud Celek, often unprompted.

THE OVER/UNDER bettors couldn't have been happy. The fantasy players who have stuck with him this season weren't tickled either. Truth be told, if I was Brent Celek's agent, needing to argue his value through his numbers, I wouldn't have been elated either watching him slide down at the 10-yard line with nothing but snow between him and a touchdown late in Sunday's game. But if I was Colt Anderson? Alex Henery? Any of the souls who would have had to line up and chase down Jeremy Ross in the slip-sliding snow one more time?

STEVE VAN BUREN famously assumed the 1948 NFL Championship Game was going to be postponed by snow. Only after an urgent call from Eagles coach Greasy Neale did Van Buren embark from Drexel Hill on a complicated, harried trolley ride to Shibe Park, where Van Buren led the Eagles to their first title. LeSean McCoy took his usual 10:15 a.m. team bus yesterday from the airport hotel where the Eagles always stay the night before home games, riding only a few uneventful minutes up I-95.

This was the day when Nick Foles finally threw an interception. It was the day when the Eagles' offense had minus-2 yards of offense after the first quarter and zero points at halftime. It was the day when we found out something more about the kid quarterback who already has shown us so much in this increasingly enchanted season. The unexpected snow that turned Lincoln Financial Field into a winter blunderland Sunday afternoon was threatening to bury the Birds when Detroit's Jeremy Ross returned a punt for a 58-yard touchdown midway through the third quarter.
