Eagles ready for Jags' up-tempo offense
The Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Bring on the no-huddle.
If the Jacksonville Jaguars plan to run an up-tempo offense against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, they'll face a defense that's prepared for it better than any other.
Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis said Wednesday that tempo will not faze his group or change what it does.
Davis' unit is used to practicing against Chip Kelly's nonstop, record-setting offense. Trying to stop Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and company in practices is a tough task. That's why Davis is confident his guys will handle Chad Henne, Toby Gerhart and the Jaguars.
Whatever the Jaguars do, it'll be a good test for the Eagles in their opener. They won the NFC East title last year despite having the worst statistical defense in franchise history.
