Jason Kelce Says Eagles Are ‘Pissed Off’ After ‘Frustrating’ Loss to the Cardinals

Jason Kelce Considers Retirement in New Documentary: 'It's Getting Harder and Harder to Stay Healthy'


Jason Kelce is revisiting the Philadelphia Eagles’ “frustrating” loss to the Arizona Cardinals — and he’s determined to salvage his team’s season. On his New Heights podcast with brother Travis Kelce on Wednesday, the Eagles center looked back at the “weird” game in which the “absolutely dominant” Cardinals rallied from a 21-6 halftime deficit to ultimately beat Philly, 35-31.

“We blew essentially home-field advantage at least for part of the playoffs, if not all of it,” Jason, 36, said. “It [was] a very frustrating game. We’re just not playing good enough right now. That’s all there is to say. To lose a game like that late in the season stinks. All you can do is just go back and work.” Kelce added about the outcome, which had “major implications” in terms of playoff seeding: “I think everyone is pissed off after the game, if we’re being quite honest.”

Yet with a star quarterback in Jalen Hurts and “great players in the building,” Kelce said, the team is looking to its next opponent on Sunday, the 5-11 New York Giants. “Hey man, it’s over,” he said. “All you can do is move forward and try and get things corrected. Look at the things you’re doing well. This is what I look at, I think Jalen played really really well. If the quarterback is playing at a high level, that takes care of a lot of things.”

Jason continued, “And I personally believe we’ve got the people in there to get the job done and make these corrections and to play at a high level. I know it’s not happening right now I get that, and it’s beyond infuriating when it’s not clicking. It tests you as a team, it tests you as a player, it tests you as a coach.” He concluded, “But man, I still love all those guys in that building and I look forward to continually working with them to go out there and right this thing.”
