Andy Reid is Almost Even

Since taking over the Eagles in 1999, Andy Reid has almost exactly the same record in regular season home games as he does on the road.

In fact, thanks to a 2008 tie in Cincinnati (rather than a loss), he has a slightly better road winning percentage (.603 to .598). Only two other NFL teams are better away from home in that time span — the New York Giants (.549 to .539) and the New Orleans Saints (.529 to .510).

The Birds are five games better under Reid when playing NFC East teams on the road than when those divisional opponents come into Philadelphia.
