But here’s the crazy thing: Four of the last six times they’ve done it, it’s been against the Lions – a team that’s not even in their league. The Eagles also had four rushing teams against the Lions in 2007, 2013 and 2021 – so those are four of the last nine times they’ve faced Detroit!

2007: Brian Westbrook 2, Corel Buckalter 1, Tony Hunt 1

2013: Lysan McCoy 2, Nick Foles 1, Chris Polk 1

Overall, the Eagles are now 2-31 when they allow a 180-yard dash and three accelerating TDs.

4. James Bradbury became the first player to have a Pick 6 in his first game as an Eagle in 82 years. In 1940, Don Looney owned a 37-yard pick-6 from Arnie Herber in a game the Packers won 27-20 at City Stadium in Green Bay. Looney also has an 8-for-115 received with a TD in that game and remains the only player in Eagles history to receive a TD and receive a TD interception in the same game.

6. With 144 yards flowing on just 15 gigs, D’Andre Swift became the first player to rush 140 yards or more in 15 or less against the Eagles in 62 years (and only the second ever). On September 25, 1960, Brown’s Bobby Mitchell was 14 to 156 in Brown’s 41-24 win at Franklin Field. Swift’s 50-yard 33-second run of the season was the longest run against the Eagles on opening day since Tiki Barber earned 72 yards in the 2004 opener (two minutes before the end of the season and 21). It was the longest running distance against the Eagles early in a game since Marshall Falk collected 57 yards in his first game in the final of the 1999 season, a game that the Eagles won 38-31 in the eventual Super Bowl. Rams Champion.

Duce Staley – who was on the opposite sideline – had 11 in the 2001 opener, losing overtime to the Rams at the vet. Jordan Matthews also had a 10 – in the 2015 opener, a loss in Atlanta. Brown also broke the record for most yards by a player in his first game as an eagle. Donte’ Stallworth had 141 in the 2006 opener in Houston.
