Eagles center Jason Kelce said he's concerned with Philadelphia's recent play after its 42-19 defeat to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

"We're not good enough right now," Kelce said, according to Tim McManus of ESPN. "Obviously disappointed in the way we performed. Didn't get it done today.

"But we've still got some games left, a lot of football to learn from. I still have the utmost confidence in everybody in this locker room on both sides of the ball. This game doesn't do anything to sway that."

The Eagles still hold the league's best record and the top seed in the NFC but have shown flaws lately. They've been outgained by at least 95 yards in each of their last five games, and their offense has failed to eclipse 400 yards in a contest since Week 5.

Philadelphia erased second-half deficits in four straight games prior to Sunday's loss. San Francisco scored touchdowns on six consecutive drives before running out the clock on the final one.

"We didn't coach good enough, didn't play good enough," head coach Nick Sirianni said after the game. "Simple as that. … We have a lot to clean up."

The Eagles will face off against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football in Week 14, a critical contest for the 2023 NFC overall standings.
