With one kick, Elliott has now set his legacy in Philadelphia in stone, what a kick. It looks like Caleb Sturgis has lost his kicking job already.

The importance of the kick is not talked about enough. The Eagles will only grow in confidence and build off of this performance. After leading the game 14-0, the Eagles gave up 21 unanswered points. However, their character led them through it and Elliott’s kick was the icing on the cake.
The Eagles hit the road next week versus the Los Angelas Chargers, a game they should win. Building off of this win and performance, the Eagles will only get better FLY EAGLES FLY!
