Only seven NFL teams have been called for more.

Each week, we'll take a look at the Eagles' penalty breakdown for the season. What players are constantly costing the Eagles? Is it mainly the offense, defense or special teams? And so on.

This is the first time so I didn't get too in-depth. It's just meant to take a quick look at the penalties. If there is something more specific you'd like to see, e-mail me or comment below.

Here are the numbers after the first two weeks.
