Eagles Taking Offense

When the Eagles’ lost to the Cardinals, 27-6, on Sunday, it ended their 36-game streak (including postseason) of scoring at least one offensive touchdown. That was the fourth-longest streak in franchise history, just two games shy of the third-longest but barely a third of the way to the team record of 99, set from 1977 to 1983.

Incidentally, Cardinals defenses have ended three of the six longest streaks in Eagles history:

 Gms.  First Game  Second Game  Broken By  Score
 99  Oct. 2, 1977  Oct. 16, 1983  Bears  L   6-  7 
 72  Dec. 3, 1944  Nov. 26, 1950  at Giants  L   3-  7
 38  Dec. 6, 1959  Nov. 4, 1962  Packers  L   0-49
 36  Jan. 9, 2010  Sept. 16, 2012    at Cardinals    L   6-27
