Eagles

Suspect road defense, struggling offense, crazy fourth-down numbers and the usual remarkable Carson Wentz stats highlight this week's edition of Roob Stats! 

• The Eagles have allowed 24 or more points in five straight road games, which is the fourth-longest streak in franchise history. They allowed 24 points in seven straight road games over the 1967 and 1968 seasons and also in 2016 and six straight in 1973 and 2010.

• Nelson Agholor has 25 catches for 167 yards after four games. He’s the first wide receiver in NFL history with 25 or more catches and fewer than 200 yards after four games.

• The Eagles haven’t scored more than 23 points this year. This is the first time since 1998 — Ray Rhodes’ final season as head coach — they’ve failed to score more than 23 points in any of their first four games. The Cards are the only other team that hasn’t scored 24 points yet. 

• Eagles quarterbacks extended their streak of consecutive games without throwing more than one interception to 24, which is tied for sixth-longest in NFL history. All seven streaks of 25 games or more have been since 2010.

• Wentz extended his personal streak of games without more than one INT to 19, which is longest in Eagles history. He had been tied with Donovan McNabb, who had an 18-game streak in 2000 and 2001. Wentz’s streak is the NFL's second-longest current streak, behind Tyrod Taylor’s NFL-record 45-gamer.

• The Eagles allowed fewer than 75 rushing yards for the fourth straight week, becoming the 12th team in NFL history to allow fewer than 75 yards rushing in four straight games to open a season. 

 

• The Eagles became the first team in NFL history to allow three fourth-down conversions in a single overtime. It had been nine years since the Eagles allowed three fourth-down conversions in the same game. It last happened in a 27-13 win over the 49ers in 2009.

• In three straight games, the Eagles have netted 375 or more yards but 23 or fewer points. It’s the first time in franchise history the Eagles have had that 375 or more yards and 23 or fewer points in three straight games and only the 16th time in NFL history.

• Cameron Johnston is averaging 51.5 yards per punt, fourth-highest in NFL history by a punter through four games [minumum of 10 punts] behind only Tress Way of the Redskins (53.0 in 2014), David Lee of the Colts (52.5 in 1966) and Bryan Anger of the Jaguars (52.0 in 2012).

• Wentz’s ninth career 300-yard passing game moved him into a tie for sixth in Eagles history with Nick Foles. Ahead of them are McNabb (27), Randall Cunningham (12), Ron Jaworski (12), Sonny Jurgensen (10) and Michael Vick (10). The only quarterbacks with more 300-yard performances in their first 31 career games are Kurt Warner (20), Kirk Cousins (12), Dan Marino (12), Jeff Garcia (10) and Matt Stafford (10).
