PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A look at some of the highlights and lowlights of the Philadelphia Eagles' season:
Best Game: Facing the Detroit Lions in a matchup of division leaders in Week 14, the Eagles overcame blizzard conditions and plowed through eight inches of snow to win 34-20. They scored four touchdowns in the fourth quarter and LeSean McCoy set a franchise-record with 217 yards rushing.
Worst Game: A 17-3 loss to Dallas at home in Week 7 in which Nick Foles was abysmal for three quarters before sustaining a concussion and rookie Matt Barkley threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter in his NFL debut.
Best Play: Brandon Boykin stepping in front of Kyle Orton's pass and making the interception in the final minutes to secure a 24-22 win at Dallas that clinched the NFC East title.
Worst Play: Trailing the Giants 12-0 late in the second quarter of a 15-7 loss in Week 8, the Eagles had a first down at New York's 2. Barkley inexplicably tried to scramble instead of throwing the ball away, was sacked and fumbled.
Biggest Surprise: Foles' emergence from backup quarterback to a guy who threw 29 TD passes and only two interceptions while posting the third-highest passer rating (119.2) in NFL history.
Biggest Disappointment: Losing a home playoff game to the New Orleans Saints on a last-second field goal after the offense, defense and special teams struggled the entire night against a team that had never won on the road in five previous postseason games
What's Next: Chip Kelly orchestrated a remarkable turnaround in his first season as coach, taking a 4-12 team that was supposed to be rebuilding and winning a division title. The future seems bright for the Eagles, who were the second-youngest team in the league and should only improve with more experience and the addition of key players.
