Eagles: This Year, The Time IS Theirs

Thanks to their eight-minute, game-winning drive against the Giants (and their 36:18 time of possession for the game), the Eagles are now third in the NFL in average TOP (32:36).

That is the second highest the club has recorded over the last 26 seasons (back to 1986, as far back as our records go).

No Andy Reid team has finished higher than 8th (30:56, 2007) in time of possession.

Here are the Eagles' top five average TOPs since 1986:

Season      Record TOP     Plays     Opp.
1991 10-6     33:25 1004 905
