PHILADELPHIA -

Chip Kelly and the Eagles are excited to host the San Diego Chargers in their 2013 regular season home opener. Philadelphia is coming off an opening week win at Washington.

Kelly was impressed by the amount of support the Eagles received in the nation's capital on Monday night. He knows it will be a whole different story when the Birds play the Chargers at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday afternoon.

Kelly said earlier this week that he thinks the Eagles' offense can be quicker. They put on a clinic in the first half before slowing down a bit in the second.
