Some observations and ruminations about Thursday night's Eagles-Chiefs game: A week after his blitzes were picked apart by Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers, Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis dialed back his pass rush. He still drew up a few packages that had corners and safeties blitzing off the edge, but linebackers DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks didn't blitz as much up the "A" gap, on either side of the center. It worked splendidly in the first half as Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith had nowhere to throw or at least was reluctant to pull the trigger.
