Comcast NFL Red Zone stat of the week - Run to win

via <a href=""></a>

The Eagles "stat of the week" is brought to you by Comcast and the new NFL Red Zone channel

The stat of the week comes from Eagles beat writer Geoff Mosher, who noticed the Eagles playcalling from the point in the 4th quarter where they were behind by 8 points.

After falling behind 8 in 4th, they RAN 10 times on final 19 plays - more than 50 percent run.

A bonus stat that partly ties in with his observation of the playcalling is his stats about the Eagles' rookies on the game winning drive. I cleaned up the twitterspeak.

On the Eagles’ final 2 drives, Jeremy Maclin & LeSean McCoy, 1st and 2nd rd picks, totaled 73 of team’s 158 yards. Averaged 8.1 yards per touch.

Do you want to see every touchdown from every NFL game as it happens as well as live look-ins to all of Sunday's games in key situations? Then you need Comcast's NFL RedZone. In fact, the great Bill Conlin dedicated an entire column to the greatness of NFL Red Zone. I posted this last week, but wanted to give it another go for anyone that missed.

I am writing this column at the same time I am watching the greatest invention since the wheel...

NFL Red Zone, an out-of-body, all-encompassing, died-and-woke-up-in-football-heaven experience.

Nine 1 o'clock games have just kicked off. Comcast SportsNet alum Scott Hanson is at the studio controls of a breathless, no-commercial, every-scoring-play - most of them live - roller-coaster ride that careens inside the 20s until the final whistle of the last 4 o'clock game.

Did I say no commercials?
