Reed Blankenship He leads all NFL safeties with 10 pass breakups despite missing two games. He is on pace for 19 pass breakups. This is a newer statistic, as the NFL only started counting pass breakups in 1999. The only NFL safety since 1999 to have 20 or more pass breakups in a season is Brian Dawkins, who had 24 in 1999 and 2005.

Jake Elliott has 80 points, putting him at 151 points this season. The Eagles’ single-season scoring leader is Cody Parkey, who had 150 points in 2014.

Brandon Graham played 187 games for the Eagles during his career. He is just one step shy of the team record currently held by David Akers, who played 188 games for the Eagles. Jason Kelce (185 games played) and Fletcher Cox (181 games played) Akers will also catch this season if they stay healthy.

• Kelce has played in 148 consecutive games for the Eagles. Earlier this season, he broke Jon Runyan’s streak of 144 consecutive games.

Nick Sirianni currently holds the record for the best winning percentage among Eagles head coaches who have coached at least one full season. The Eagles have three undefeated interim coaches – Bo McMillin (2-0), Fred Bruney (1-0) and Pat Shurmur (1-0).

At 31-12, Sirianni has a career winning percentage of .721. Greasy Neale had a record of 63-43-5 (.590) and Andy Reid had a record of 130-93-1 (.583). Even if the Eagles finish the 2023 season 0-8, Sirianni will still hold the record for the best winning percentage in Eagles history.
