FOR A VARIETY of reasons, the Cardinals were an interesting test case for this Eagles defense, first and foremost because Arizona is the one nondivision team the Eagles have faced in each of the first three years of the Chip Kelly regime. To the numbers . . . In 2013, they allowed 350 yards in a 24-21 win. Last year, they allowed 400 yards in a 24-20 loss. On Sunday, lest you need a reminder, they allowed 493 yards in a 40-17 loss. You don't need graphing paper to know the line is headed in the wrong direction.

Jim Kenney's Twitter feed confirms that Philadelphia's incoming mayor is a sports fan. A recent tweet: He may have been difficult to manage, but I liked DeSean. Wish he was still an Eagle. — Jim Kenney (@JimFKenney) December 8, 2015 A reasonable position on DeSean Jackson, even a populist one, as is Kenney's declaration last week that he wants to delve deeper into Temple's campus stadium hopes, and whether a deal with the Eagles still could be viable. Does Temple president Neil Theobald care what you, or I, or those protesters kept out of his board meeting last week think of his plan to build a football stadium on campus?

Nelson Agholor's frustrating rookie season had its highlight Sunday when he caught a 53-yard touchdown pass in the Eagles' 23-20 win over the Buffalo Bills. It was his first career touchdown and a positive sign for an offense that badly needs production from its first-round pick. "It felt great, obviously, because it was a play that helped us out," Agholor said. "It was not just a touchdown just because, it was a touchdown that put us in position to make other plays. . . . I don't worry about [what took so long to score]

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 14 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Tyrod Taylor, QB, Bills at Eagles. Philly's defense and special teams embarrassed the Patriots last week, but it wasn't like they shut down Tom Brady. Taylor, meanwhile, racked up four TDs while basting the Texans secondary. He and Sammy Watkins should have another very productive outing on Sunday. Shaun Draughn, RB, 49ers at Browns. Out of nowhere, Draughn has quietly become fantasy relevant thanks in large part to his heavy involvement in the passing game.

THE GAME outside the game is in full spin mode these days. Chip Kelly, feigning indifference at how he is perceived while at the same time trying to mold that perception. Against an increasingly bewildered group that is often bullied out of obvious follow-ups to mind-melting answers, most of which boil down to this essential thought: You can't be serious. Here are the highlights from Wednesday's 11-minute news conference, Kelly's first since ESPN reported that DeMarco Murray had complained to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie about his lack of carries in Sunday's 35-28 victory over New England.

If the state of the Eagles weren't so rotten, the lack of production from their top two draft picks would probably float under the radar. But neither Nelson Agholor nor Eric Rowe has made a dent through 10 games, and with wide receiver and nickel defensive back trouble spots for the team, Chip Kelly could have used contributions from the rookies. The Eagles coach was asked Monday if he was getting enough out of his first- and second-round draft selections. "I think Nelson has been hurt, so that's part of what happened in terms of where he is," Kelly said.

If you want to know what Chip Kelly really thinks of his wide receivers, particularly the collection of players who line up primarily on the outside, look at how the Eagles' passes have been distributed this season compared with the previous two. In 2013, outside receivers were targeted 45.4 percent of the time, while inside "receivers" - the slot, tight ends and running backs - saw 54.6 percent. In 2014, outside receivers were targeted 43.6 percent of the time, while inside receivers were targeted 56.4 percent.

DESEAN JACKSON had a quieter-than-expected return for the Redskins Sunday. The former Eagles wide receiver, who hadn't played since hurting his hamstring in Week 1, was targeted six times but caught only three passes for 15 yards in a 17-10 loss to the Patriots. Quarterback Kirk Cousins, who was named the starter over Robert Griffin III this season, finished 22-for-40 for 217 yards and one touchdown. There were seven dropped passes, although none by Jackson, who voiced his unhappiness with his team's offensive effort after the game.

From DeSean Jackson in 2013 to Jeremy Maclin in 2014, Chip Kelly's offense produced a Pro Bowl wide receiver on the right side during his first two years with the Eagles. Kelly also let both receivers go. He drafted Nelson Agholor in the first round last spring and inserted him as the starter on the right side - a spot at which Agholor could excel. But in 41/2 games this season, Agholor recorded only eight catches and 105 yards. He left in the first half against New Orleans with an ankle injury and missed the Eagles' next two games, keeping him from breaking out after the early-season struggles.

Against a white brick wall in the bowels of Met Life Stadium late last month, Jerry Jones had proved again how far he was willing to go to keep the spotlight on his precious Cowboys, no matter the mockery and outrage that was sure to follow, no matter the cost to his credibility. By signing defensive end Greg Hardy in March, Jones, the Cowboys' owner and general manager, had dared to defy the post-Ray Rice atmosphere of an NFL supposedly more sensitive to domestic violence. The league had suspended Hardy 10 games after a judge had found him guilty of assaulting and threatening his girlfriend, including throwing her on a bed covered with guns.
