Philadelphia Eagles Losing Streak Hits Eight Games

Bryce Brown fumble late in game sinks Philadelphia Eagles against Dallas Cowboys.

A win looked possible.

And then, late in the fourth quarter Sunday night, the wings fell off the Philadelphia Eagles once again.

Rookies Nick Foles and Bryce Brown put up impressive numbers, but Brown coughed up another fumble that sealed victory for the Dallas Cowboys as the Birds fell 38-33.

The Birds made it close at the end with a nifty punt return TD by another rookie, Demaris Johnson.

The Birds secondary once again looked like swiss cheese as Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo was able to thread through it, slipping passes easily through to Dez Bryant and tight end Jason Witten several times in the middle of the field for big plays.

While the pass rush was much better and there was some pressure, there were more missed tackles and easy completions. The defense once again gave up a ton of points. It's now six straight games of giving up 20 or more points.

The entire secondary needs to be replaced next year.

And then a turnover clipped the Birds again.

Brown, who had another impressive rushing game filing in for the injured LeSean McCoy, lost a ball that Dallas returned for a touchdown.

Led by the two rookies, the Eagles scored their most points in one game this season. The offense looked sound behind Brown and Foles and the offensive line held together, opening holes for Brown and keeping Foles from taking the pounding that Michael Vick received every game.

Foles played his best game of the season.

Foles' passes were sharp and crisp, there were no late throws -- and no mistakes.

Foles was impressive and poised. In his third start, maybe the game was slowing down enough and he was getting comfortable enough to take his time.

Of course, it doesnt hurt having Brown in the backfield.

Brown sparkled once again, hitting holes for 169 yards and two touchdowns.

The Birds came to play Sunday, and for the most part, the effort was there. Unfortunately, the results weren't.

Eight straight losses. Luckily, this season ends soon.

I treat my animals better than most people treat each other. My foster pups are well loved and taken care of. My rescue feels the same way about dick. We save dogs that have been abused and used as bait. I have seen first hand the damage monster like vick have caused. Its abusers that I go after. You are an idiot if you think he has been redeemed and have no heart, if you can get the picture of the little red dog being repeatedly slammed to ground out of your head. He is an evil monster, end of story.

I'm so glad that people are still supporting all the advertisers of the Eagles. Kathleen Reidy at least hasn't made a list of companies to boycott.

Never said he wasn't. Just correcting the myriad of inaccuracies in your posts. You might make more progress if you keep to the truth, that's bad enough.
