Eagles playing historically bad pass defense under Todd Bowles

Rich Schultz

From Reuben Frank of CSN Philly: In three games under defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, the Philadelphia Eagles have become the first team to allow three straight opposing QB's to complete 70 percent of their passes, toss a touchdown or more, and throw no picks.

Jim Johnson was the Eagles’ defensive coordinator for 10 years, and only two QBs – Kerry Collins in 2000 and Peyton Manning in 2002 – had games in which they threw for 200 yards, hit on 70 percent of their passes and had more than one TD and no interceptions.

Todd Bowles has been defensive coordinator for a month, and he’s already seen three quarterbacks do it.
