The Philadelphia Eagles were put to the test in Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts. Philadelphia pulled out the win thanks to a fourth-quarter comeback, and head coach Nick Sirianni seemed especially fired up at the end of the game.

Sirianni explained the reason behind the emotional display in his postgame press conference.

Philadelphia's HC said his reaction was related to the firing of Frank Reich, whom he served under from 2018-2020 before taking the Eagles job. Sirianni called Reich one of his "biggest mentors" and made it clear he's not a fan of Indianapolis' decision to part ways with him.

Sirianni's explanation makes total sense. Outsiders were quick to judge Philadelphia's coach for over-celebrating a win against a team under .500, but this victory meant even more to him given the circumstances of Reich's departure.

Sunday was a gritty showing by the Eagles, who overcame a 13-3 deficit entering the fourth quarter to win 17-16. It was a great display of Philadelphia's resiliency after coasting through their schedule to begin the season.

Sirianni will look to get his team its 10th win of the year in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers.
