When the Cowboys burned the Eagles for a 70-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter Sunday night, it extended the Birds' streak of not shutting out an opponent to 254 games (including postseason). That is a club record and the fifth longest current streak in the NFL (see below).
Noteworthy: The last time an Eagles' foe came up empty on the scoreboard was Dec. 1, 1996, when they blanked a Giants team that was QBed by Dave Brown and Danny Kanell ... The Eagles' other 100-plus streaks without a shutout were 178 games (Oct. 39, 1955-Nov. 28, 1968) and 109 games (Nov. 28, 1968-Oct. 31, 1976) ... The Eagles themselves have been shut out seven times since they last blanked an opponent ... The Bears haven't been shut out in 141 games (Dec. 29, 2002) ... Chicago's defense last posted a shutout in Week 11 last year.
