If Football Games Were Only Three Quarters Long...

The Eagles would probably be undefeated… But alas, you must play all four quarters and the Eagles have failed to do that in historical fashion. These stats are from ESPN.

The Eagles continue to struggle late in games. This season Philadelphia has outscored its opponents by 57 points in the first three quarters of games, but have been outscored by 36 in the fourth quarter. Monday marked the fourth time this season Philadelphia lost a game in which they held a fourth-quarter lead. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Eagles are the third team in NFL history to lose four such games within its first eight games of a season. The only other teams to do that were the 1954 Packers and the 1999 Saints.
