Chip Kelly has done a brilliant job in his first season in Philly, and he might wind up as Coach of the Year.

Where he once was thought to favor a pass-heavy attack, Kelly's Eagles actually lead the NFL in rushing with a 161.9-yard average. Tailback LeSean McCoy is having a career year with 2,012 scrimmage yards, including a league-best 1,476 rushing yards. And quarterback Nick Foles has executed Kelly's system almost perfectly; he leads the NFL with a 118.7 passer rating and has 25 touchdown passes and just two interceptions.
