Now, this is starting to get real bad ... historically bad.
The Eagles have lost four consecutive games by at least 13 points for the first time since 1976 and just the third time in their history. In 1971, they managed to lose each of their first five contests by at least a baker's dozen.
We even checked out the two most recent winless teams in NFL history. The 1976 Bucs (0-14) lost each of their last six games by at least 17 points. The 2008 Lions dropped each of their first four by at least 13.
Here are the Birds' three runs of four 13-point losses:
