Thank goodness for the Kansas City Chiefs. If not for them, the Eagles would have the lowest-scoring team in the NFL in both the first and second quarters.

The Birds have one more point in the opening stanza (7) than the Chiefs (6).

Here are the Eagles' point totals for all four quarters and both halves and where that number ranks in the NFL:


 Quarter/Half  Pts. 
 NFL Rk. 
 First Quarter    7  31st
 Second Quarter   
 34  32nd
 Third Quarter
 48  t-9th
 Fourth Quarter  44
 First Half
 Second Half
 92  16th
