• Mack Hollins' 64-yard TD catch Monday was the longest by an Eagles rookie in 11 years and sixth-longest in Eagles history. Here's a look at all the 50-yard TDs in Eagles history by rookies:
95 … Fred Barnett vs. Bills in 1990 (from Cunningham)
90 … Hank Baskett vs. Rams in 2006 (from McNabb)
89 … Hank Baskett vs. Falcons in 2006 (from Feeley)
83 … Kenny Jackson vs. Giants in 1984 (from Jaworski)
67 … Billy Ray Barnes vs. Cards in 1957 (from Thomason)
64 … Mack Hollins vs. Redskins in 2017 (from Wentz)
58 … John Mallory vs. Cowboys in 1968 (from Baker)
57 … Mel Bleeker vs. Tigers in 1944 (from Zimmerman)
61 … Tommy McDonald vs. Redskins in 1957 (from Jurgensen)
56 … Reggie Brown vs. Redskins in 2005 (from McNabb)
• Hollins' and Clement's TD catches made this the first game since the Falcons on New Year's Eve 2006 that two Eagles rookies had TD catches in the same game. That was also Michael Vick's final game with the Falcons.
• The Eagles have now held five straight opponents to 80 or fewer rushing yards. That's the fourth-longest streak in franchise history and their longest streak since a seven-game streak in 1991. One more game would give the Eagles a six-game streak that would match the longest in the NFL since the Steelers had a seven-game streak in 2010.
• Clement's rushing TD vs. the Giants and receiving TD vs. the Redskins make him the first undrafted Eagle with receiving and rushing TDs in the same season sine Hal Giancanelli in 1953.
• The Eagles' 13- and 10-point wins over the Redskins mark the first time in 15 years and only the seventh time ever the Eagles have beaten the Redskins by double digits twice in the same season (also 1948, 1949, 1950, 1975, 1980, 2002).
• Zach Ertz now has 39 catches, 494 yards and five TDs, numbers that only six other tight ends in NFL history have reached through seven games: Pete Pihos, Antonio Gates, Jimmy Graham, Jordan Cameron, Owen Daniels and Rob Gronkowski.
• Ertz's 286 receptions are seventh-most in NFL history by a tight end after 68 games, behind only Kellen Winslow Jr. and Sr., Graham, Gronk, Gates and Jeremy Shockey.
• The Eagles have put together five straight games gaining 100 or more rushing yards and allowing 80 or fewer rushing yards. That equals the sixth-longest streak in NFL history. One more game gives them the third-longest streak.
• The Eagles are the 15th team since 1947 to rush for 900 or more yards through seven games and allow fewer than 500 yards. The first one since the 2008 Ravens.
• The Eagles haven't allowed a 100-yard rusher in their last 17 games, since Matt Jones of the Redskins in Week 6 last year. It's their longest streak since a 20-gamer over the 2008 and 2009 seasons. It's also the longest current streak in the NFL.
• Eagles opponents have only 123 rushing attempts this year, or just 17.6 per game. That's the second-lowest figure in the NFL since 1952 (the 1991 Saints faced 119 rushing plays through seven games).
• Derek Barnett became the first Eagles rookie with a two-sack game since Trent Cole in 2005. Cole had two that year - against the Cowboys and Giants in back-to-back weeks in November. Other Eagle rookies with two-sack games: Jerome Brown, Mike Mamula, Corey Simon and Derrick Burgess.
