If the Eagles are looking for DeSean Jackson's "replacement," they need to look no further than to their own roster and tight end Zach Ertz. The Eagles, of course, have added two pieces - Jeremy Maclin and Darren Sproles - to supplement the 2013 production that left with Jackson. But of their current players, Ertz has perhaps the best chance to dramatically increase his numbers now that Jackson is in Washington, especially if the second-year tight end delivers upon Eagles expectations.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
