Eagles can tie NFL record with fifth straight 20-point win

Getty Images

The Eagles aren’t just winning, they’re blowing their opponents out. And they can tie an NFL record if they do it again on Sunday night.

If the Eagles beat the Seahawks by 20 points or more, it will be their fifth consecutive 20-point victory. That would tie an NFL record.

The last team to win five consecutive games by 20 points or more was the 1999 “Greatest Show on Turf” St. Louis Rams. The Eagles have beaten the Bears 31-3, the Cowboys 37-9, the Broncos 51-23 and the 49ers 33-10 over their last four games.

In addition to the 1999 Rams, four other teams in NFL or AFL history have won five straight games by 20 or more points: The 1961 Packers, the 1961 Houston Oilers, the 1953 Eagles and the 1949 Eagles.

  1. Eagles are great this season don’t get me wrong, but the Seahawks have never been blowout at home like that in CenturyLink. They might win and are favored by 6, but there’s no chance Eagles destroy the Seahawks by 3 TDs.

  2. This isn’t the Seahawks of old on defense, but they’re not losing by more than 20 at home. The game will be close either way.

  3. This is exactly the kind of noise the Eagles need to tune out. Even with all their injuries the Seahawks are capable of beating any team. Just execute each and every play.

  4. At the start of this season… it was so much fun attacking the non-stop forced feeding agent/sponsor/media/team Carson Wentz hype machine… but… he is playing ball.

    Even without multi-dimensional offensive weapon Darren Sproles.

    The Eagles are still loaded on offense.

  5. Analysis, people and the national keep doubting this Eagles team and they continue to prove them wrong and blow out teams week after week. I don’t see this week being any different because the Seahawks cant run the ball, the Eagles defensive line should dominate the Seahawks offensive line and limit Russell Wilson’s mobility and the Hawks defense is without Sherman and Cam Chancellor so I see the Eagles scoring 20 or more points and covering the 6 point spread that vegas has set for them, Wentz should have a good day passing the ball and the Eagles will get the run game going as well.

    Really? Everyone’s putting the Eagles at the top of the power rankings, calling their QB the MVP, going on TV and saying they’re the best team. Las Vegas favors them every week. Who are the “analysis, people and the national” doubting this team?

    But, hey, whatever perceived sleight to your football team it takes for you to get through the day.

  7. they are the eagles…. somehow, someway they will find a way to make an early exit from the playoffs and the philly fans will go another season without a SB…. HTTR!

  8. The only guy on here who thinks this stat is important is skwah, since he’s still trying to convince himself that the Seahawks blowout win over Denver in the SB should count as a dynasty.

  9. Don’t get too high on yourself Eagles fans… the NFC East is TERRIBLE
    and the Eagles 2017 schedule (just look at it) has been easy.

  10. The real question is, how long did they spend practicing their team TD celebrations this week? This game won’t even be close. Seahawks win in a laugher. Iggles get exposed this weekend. Book it.

  11. I’m not sure the Eagles want to be likened with the Rams “Greatest Show on Turf” partly because those Rams also became known as “the Dynasty that Never Was” and they had a terrible defense. They’ve also whined and lied incessantly for nearly 20 years about a supposedly taped walkthrough that never was. But then, so have some Eagles from the SB 39 loss been salty and privately cast similarly false aspersions to the Commissioner about the Pats during Spygate. Though to their credit, Andy Reid and Eagles’ owner Lurie publicly rubbished the suggestions leaking out from other team “sources”.

    Meanwhile, the Pats never complained about a Rams spy videoing the Pats practice field and then scooting off before he could be caught, and Pats never complained about a couple of Giants players saying Tyree used stickum on his gloves.

    Don’t let these people troll you Eagles fans. It is rare for any team to start 10-1, so enjoy it because it doesn’t come around very often. Don’t listen to the haters who tell you to “Pump the Brakes”, I mean if you can’t get hyped about your team going 10-1, then what fun is it? Eagles fans should be pumped as they have the best looking young QB in the league and a good young core on defense. This team is going to be hard to deal with for the next decade. Forget the history of never winning a superbowl, The Eagles never had a QB like Wentz which is why they never won the superbowl. This guy is a winner and he is going to win a championship down the road. He is all business and has the brain and mindset to make it happen. Forget the trolls, they just hate seeing Philly do good because they are jealous.

  13. Every year there’s a team with a hot quarterback, no injuries and a cupcake schedule. Last year it was the Cowboys. This year it’s the Eagles. Close game but the Eagles defense has never faced anything like what Russell Wilson is going to throw at them. They’ll be exposed.

    Now, if only the Seahawks kicker could make a 48 yard field goal

  14. As a Saints fan…the Eagles are scary. Very scary. Saints could beat them in the playoffs at home…unlikely on the road, although they’ve done it before (2013).

    No injuries??? All Pro LT out, Starting MLB out, Best offensive weapon out, 2 kickers hurt, best CB out for 8 weeks to begin season…what team are you talking about???

    Wait, are the Eagles running up the score? I seem to remember people being incensed about that not too long ago.
    ======

    They’re not. In fact, Wentz has been pulled from every blowout win. Nice try, though

  18. I hate to break it to Seahawks fans, but this game will only be close till the end of the first half. Even if Sherman and cam were playing this was gonna be a blow out. It’s just the eagles year, that’s all.

    Oh and can we please stop saying how “healthy” the eagles are ? I mean when 2 hof caliber players are out for the season, a very good young mlb is out for the season and the number 1 corner misses half the season, I don’t think thats what you call healthy

  19. The key to the Eagles winning is more in the defense containing Wilson than about scoring tons of points on offense. With all the guys out on the Seattle defense, the Eagles will get some points; I’m thinking mid-20s most likely. So if they contain Wilson in the pocket (easier said than done), they have a good shot at a decisive win. People talk up Wentz a lot, and rightfully so, but that Eagles defense is very solid in its own right and Seattle’s offense is one-dimensional.

  20. Eagles looking SOLID this year. Love Wentz. But it’s been a long time since the ‘Hawks have lost by 20 at home.

    I pick the Eagles to win by 9.

  21. The insecurities of the fans of either also ran squads or ones taking a beating this year is humorous. I laugh when I read the haters posts as they are usually fans of teams the Eagles are about to play (which is completely understandable) or teams in their own division who cannot get out of their own way. The schedule is soft, we play the same AFC Teams and the same NFC West teams as they will and each other…..yet the Eagles ere 10-1 and the others are not. What does that say about their teams that they are barely .500 against the same “cupcake” schedule. So don’t be upset boys enjoy the ride and remember we were once the ones posting silly stuff about…Tom Coughlin’s faces, RG III and the shenanigans that occur in Jerruh’s World. Go Birds!!!

  22. Not sure how this game will go. Seattle LOVES being an underdog…

    Regardless, be sure and take a good long look at 2017 NFL DPOY Bobby Wagner this week.

  23. Kind of funny to see seahawks fans say the Eagles have no wins versus good teams, considering seattle has only one win against a team with a winning record. People in glass houses or something.

  24. How many teams have followed 4 blowouts of 20 or more with a loss of 20? That’s a much higher probability since the Seahawks haven’t put together 4 quarters yet this season. Looking at Seattles schedule…..this is their last shot at doing it at home on the national stage.

  25. 1961 Houston Oilers??? AFL??? That’s like mentioning a Triple A baseball record for the 1961 New Haven Nutcrackers. The old AFL was in no way a league that warrants serious comparisons to NFL records.

  26. It will be a dogfight, especially since Seattle will be playing their 12th man. It will be close by halftime with the Eagles pulling away in the 3rd quarter, just too many horses and too many critical D players out for the Seahawks. They will try their best though…..as they should.

    haha hilarious. You could actually put two of those guys the eagles lost to injury in the HOF. One for SURE (Peters). Sproles stats have him in the running too.

  28. These last few games really have reminded me of that Rams team. It’s been ridiculous. But I will be shocked if they win by 20 in Seattle.

  29. Russell Wilson has never lost by 20. And the Seahawks in Pete Carroll’s time have been insane at home in primetime games. So, probably won’t happen.

    That said, if the Seahawks aren’t up at the half, I don’t think they can win. They need to come out strong from the first quarter.

    As I mentioned in another thread, the ‘Hawks beat both ATL and NE last season, in a decidedly off year. They don’t often shrink from big moments, but they have so far this year (ATL, GB, WAS,TEN), games that looked bigger at the time.

  30. the average record of the last 4 teams the eagles played was 3-8, and the shell of themselves cowboys at 5-6 are what makes the average as good as 3-8. seahawks d is also a shell of itself, but there will be no 20 point blowout. How much did they beat the other above .500 team they played by? 5 points? i’d say if they win it will look more like that.

    Have you looked at a list of the NFL’s All-purpose yards career leaders lately? Sproles is 8th, with more yards than Ladanian Tomlinson, Barry Sanders, Marcus Allen, and Curtis Martin, all HOF’ers. Further down the list is Thurman Thomas, Tony Dorsett, Jim Brown, Eric Dickerson, Jerome Bettis and others. So yeah, he’s in the conversation at the very least.

    1 Jerry Rice+ 23,546
    2 Brian Mitchell 23,330
    3 Walter Payton+ 21,803
    4 Emmitt Smith+ 21,564
    5 Tim Brown+ 19,682
    6 Marshall Faulk+ 19,190
    7 Steve Smith 19,180
    8 Darren Sproles 19,155
    9 LaDainian Tomlinson+ 18,456
    10 Barry Sanders+ 18,308
    11 Herschel Walker 18,168
    12 Marcus Allen+ 17,648
    13 Curtis Martin+ 17,421

    For your consideration….

    Sproles is The only player in NFL history to produce 30-plus receiving TDs, 20-plus rushing TDs, one kickoff return TD and one punt return TD; one of eight players in NFL history have 30-plus receiving TDs and 20-plus rushing TDs; one of two players in NFL history with 500-plus receptions, 500-plus rush attempts and 500-plus kickoff and punt returns.

    Sproles leads all active NFL players and ranks 8th all-time with 19,011 all-purpose yards. Plus, Sproles is one of only seven players in NFL history to record 1,000-plus all-purpose yards in 11-plus straight seasons.

    “Please child” right back at you

    What record can they tie since their last championship was in 1960 ?

    Have you ever seen the movie Big Fan starring Patton Oswalt? It’s about a loser Giants fan.

    Of course, I expect a devastating comeback much like your above third-grade-level “insult”.
