Eagles

Alshon Jeffery's touchdown catches, third-down defense and high-scoring games against the Giants highlight this week's edition of Roob Stats.

And maybe a Carson Wentz stat or two!

1. Wentz has gone 19 straight games with at least one touchdown pass and one or fewer interceptions. That's the second-longest streak in NFL history, two behind Matt Ryan's 21-game streak over the 2015 through 2017 seasons. 

2. As a group, Eagles quarterbacks have gone 29 straight games without throwing more than one interception. That's the fifth-longest streak in NFL history. The next-longest current streak belongs to the Falcons at 11 games.

3. Wentz's 57 touchdowns are fourth-most in NFL history by a quarterback after 33 games, behind only Dan Marino (76), Kurt Warner (73) and Matt Stafford (63). Of the 23 QBs in NFL history who've thrown at least 48 TD passes in their first 33 games, only three have thrown fewer than 25 interceptions: Wentz (22), Nick Foles (22) and Russell Wilson (19).

4. One more on Wentz: With his three TDs Thursday night, he moved all the way from a tie for 10th in Eagles history to a tie for 6th, passing Adrian Burke (55) and Norm Van Brocklin (55) and moving into a tie with Michael Vick and Bobby Thomason (57). Next on that list is Sonny Jurgensen (76).

5. Zach Ertz had seven more catches, giving him 48, most in NFL history by a tight end after six games. The previous high was Eric Johnson's 45 for the 49ers in 2004. Overall, his 48 catches are 13th-most by any player after six games.

6. With 11 games to play this year, Ertz already has the eighth-most catches ever by a tight end in his first six seasons at 369. Next on the list is Jeremy Shockey at 371. Ertz needs 66 catches to pass Antonio Gates, whose 434 catches from 2010 through 2015 are most ever by a tight end in his first six seasons.

 

7. With his third catch Thursday night, Ertz passed Mike Quick and moved into seventh place in Eagles history in receptions. He's only two behind Keith Byars and four behind Pete Pihos so he could move into fifth as soon as Sunday. Also within reach this year: former teammate and close friend Brent Celek (398) and Brian Westbrook (426). That would leave only Harold Carmichael (589) and Pete Retzlaff (452).

8. The Eagles have held all six opponents this year to 40 percent or lower on third down. It's the first time in franchise history they've held their first six opponents to 40 percent or lower on third down.

9. Including the postseason, Jeffery has 13 touchdown catches in his last 16 games going back to Week 7 last year. Only Antonio Brown (17) has more during the same span.  

10. Finally … and this is amazing: The Eagles' 34-13 win over the Giants was their fifth game in the last six years scoring 34 or more points against the Giants at the Meadowlands. During the same span, the Giants have allowed 34 points only three other times.

The last eight times an NFC East team has scored 34 points against the Giants, it's been the Eagles.

During the 55 years from 1950 through 2005, the Eagles scored 34 points against the Giants on the road just four times. In the last 13 years, they've done it eight times. The last seven times the Eagles have scored 34 or more points against the Giants, it's been in East Rutherford.
