Statisitical tidbits related to the Eagles' season

Looking at the Eagles' stats this year, I noticed some interesting trends.

TO differential: Eagles: +2 Rank: tied for 7th

Packers: -3 Rank: 15th, next to last (for perspective)

Giants: -15 Rank 16th, last (damn they are bad)

The Eagles' QBs only have two interceptions after six games. I don't think anyone would have guessed that during preseason. The turnover situation is actually better than it looks because most giveaways have come from fumbles. Like recent years, the Eagles are unlucky when trying to recover their own fumbles. Eagles rushers have two fumbles total and have lost both of them. Also, that ridiculous non-fumble in the Redskins game counts against the Eagles. they are doing better in reality than on paper.

The Eagles have 10 total takeaways- six interceptions and four fumble recoveries.

All things considered, the Eagles have been great at doing the most important thing in football: taking care of the ball.



Defensive Efficiency:The Eagles defense is middle of the road at rush defense, allowing 4.0 yards per carry. meanwhile, the Eagles defense is better than perceived at stopping the pass. they have allowed 7.5 yards per attempt (ranked 21). Clevland (best) allows 5.8 and Green Bay (worst) allows 8.7.

The better offenses (Eagles and Broncos) also give up the most passing yards per game. Not a surprise.

Pass Rush:The Eagles are ranked 24th in sacks. They have 13 on the season. Andy Reid's Chiefs have the inverse number- 31. The Eagles are actually worse than 24th because some teams below them had bye weeks. Our pass rush is in sad shape but it's not as a bad as it seems. The Eagles pass rushers should have more sacks (porbably about 5 more) if not for intentional grounding penalties committed by opposing QBs.

I tried to focus on the stats that I think primarily decide games. Any of these stats pop out to anyone?
