Eagles’ Jason Kelce explains sideline confrontation with Nick Sirianni, Jeff Stoutland during Sunday’s matchup in LA

Eagles center Jason Kelce wears his emotions on his sleeves. So when he’s fed up with something, it’s pretty easy to tell.

During Sunday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, cameras caught Kelce ranting and raving on the sidelines. First to head coach Nick Sirianni, then to his position coach, Jeff Stoutland.

Following the Eagles 23-14 victory, reporters asked Kelce what the sideline confrontation was all about.

“I’m not going to get into it,” Kelce said postgame. “I think that I love everybody in this building like a family, I’ve been here a very long time. And I think, I just got a little bit too heated. The red zone has been frustrating I think for everybody. We’ve left a lot of points on the board. And I let myself get too frustrated, too animated. And it wasn’t productive.

“So for me — I cannot overstate this — I think I always get the most heated and the most emphatic with the people that I love and respect. I don’t know why that’s the case, it’s always been the case.”

Kelce has every reason to be frustrated with the team’s red zone efficiency. Heading into Week 5, the Eagles were scoring touchdowns on just 46 percent of their red zone trips, ranking 24th in the NFL.

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why Philly has struggled in the red zone – they certainly have the talent to score six points on more than 46 percent of their red zone trips. Whatever the reason may be, the team will need to figure it out quickly, with the gauntlet of their schedule on the horizon.
