If the Eagles beat the Cowboys Sunday night, it will have been 331 days between home victories for them. They haven't won a game at Lincoln Financial Field since Dec. 2, 2010, having dropped the last five. That is the longest home losing streak for the Birds since 1994-95.
If the Eagles fumble away this Sunday's night game, it will be their first six-game home losing streak since 1983, one year removed from the Dick Vermeil era. That would also put them in position to match the club record of eight home losses in a row (set in 1936-37) before Thanksgiving.
Over the five games, the Eagles have outgained their visitors in yardage and first downs. The problem comes in the form of a minus-9 turnover differential.
Here are the Birds' last five home games:
