If you think the Eagles fourth quarter struggles are unprecedented... if you think no one can be this bad in the fourth quarter of games... you're almost right.

The Eagles have now lost four games in which they have a fourth quarter lead, making them just the third team in NFL history to do that in their first 8 games of the season. Only the '54 Packers and '99 Saints lost as many fourth quarter leads in the first half of the season.

And just to compound how crazy it is... The Eagles have outscored their opponents by 57 over the first three quarters of games this year. In the fourth quarter however? They've been outscored by 36. It's just hard to understand.
