The Daily Numbers for Monday, Nov. 7 (Eagles Edition)

The Daily Numbers: 4-4 record for the Eagles.

4 losses in their last 5 games after sprinting out of gate to 3-0 mark.

28-23 loss to the Giants in North Jersey yesterday.

4 times in those 4 losses Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense had a chance to tie the game or win late.

0 times they managed to cash it in.

2 early interceptions tossed by Wentz that the Giants quickly converted into TDs and a 14-0 lead.

0 interceptions for Wentz in his first 134 passes in the NFL.

5 INTs in his next 97 passes.

4 TD passes tossed by Giants QB Eli Manning.

4 straight plays from the Giants 17-yard line when the Eagles and Went misfired in the final moments.

3 of 15 on third downs for the Birds’ offense.

1 of 4 on 4th down.

4 for 11 for Wentz passing on 3rd down.

1 passing 1st down. That gives him 23 on the season.

27 of 42 for 364 yards for Carson Wentz.

8 catches for 97 yards for tight end Zach Ertz.

2 catches for 69 yards for newcomer Bryce Treggs, who took the place of the cut Josh Huff.

6 points taken off the board by head coach Doug Pederson’s decision to go for it twice in 4th down instead of kicking field goals. They did not convert either time.

1 field goal blocked by the Giants. That’s 9 points the Eagles gave away.

23 points now scored by the Birds in successive weeks - both losses.

5 times Carson Wentz targeted Dorrial Green Beckham.

0 catches for the big wideout.

Call me a Phanatic: A look at the ups and downs of being a Philadelphia sports fan.

Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz are now making the kind of rookie mistakes that get you beat in the NFL.

I Don’t Get It: Looks like we’re starting to see why the Titans were willing to give away Dorrial Green-Beckham. Guy doesn’t seem terribly interested in going after the ball, or running out his routes. That gives him something in common with rest of Eagles receivers, they all run lousy routes.

Today’s Upper: Kudos to Caleb Sturgis, who continues to be money, despite being passed over for 2 attempts that could have given Eagles the win and having a 3rd blocked.

Quote Box: “There’s a fine line between crazy, borderline crazy and doing the right thing.”

- Eagles head coach Doug Pederson.
