Eight Nuggets for Eight Losses

Eight Eagles nuggets for eight losses.

We present you with one negative stat nugget for each game in this Eagles losing streak:

♦ The Eagles have now lost eight consecutive games for the eighth time in their history, the fourth time they have dropped eight in a row in the same season.

♦ In the six games that Todd Bowles has been the defensive coordinator, opposing quarterbacks have completed 76.3% of their passes, thrown for 16 TDs, 0 interceptions and have a passer rating of 142.4.

♦ The Eagles have seven interceptions in 12 games. Twice in their history, they had more picks than that in a single game.

♦ The Birds haven't had a sack and an interception in the same game since Week 2.

♦ The Eagles led after the first quarter for the first time this season.

♦ When the Eagles took a 14-3 lead midway through the second quarter, it was their largest lead of the season.

♦ Eagles opponents have scored 30 or more points in four straight games. The only time that has happened in their history was Games 3-6 in 1970.

♦ In four games, NFC East foes are outscoring the Eagles by 56-21 in the fourth quarter.
