Last Time Eagles Accomplished This, They Made the Super Bowl

Plenty to watch for Sunday. The Eagles-Cowboys game might not mean anything in terms of playoff seedings, but there are several impressive achievements the Eagles can lock up Sunday at the Linc.

Let's take a look in the final regular-season edition of Eagles Milestone Watch:

• If the Eagles beat the Cowboys, they will complete only their second undefeated season against NFC East competition since the divisional format was created with the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Their only undefeated season was in 2004. The Eagles are also shooting for their sixth undefeated season at home but their first since 1992, their only 8-0 home season. They went 6-0 at home in 1945, 1948 and 1949 and 5-0 in 1953.

• If the Eagles hold the Cowboys without a rushing touchdown, they will become the 16th team in NFL history to not allow a rushing touchdown at home in a full season and the ninth in a 16-game season. It would also be their 10th consecutive home game not allowing a rushing TD, which would equal the sixth-longest streak in NFL history.

• If Eagles quarterbacks throw a touchdown and one or fewer interceptions, the Eagles would become only the second team in NFL history with one or more TDs and one or fewer INTs in every game in a season. They would extend their streak of games with one or more TDs and one or fewer INTs to 18, which would be the second-longest in NFL history.

• Brent Celek, the longest-tenured Eagle, needs 15 receiving yards for 5,000 in his career, which would make him the eighth player in Eagles history with 5,000 receiving yards. Torrey Smith needs 49 yards for 5,000 in his career with the Ravens, 49ers and Eagles.

• If Eagles QBs can throw two touchdowns and one or no interceptions, the Eagles would become only the fifth team in NFL history with 40 touchdown passes and single-digit interceptions in a season. The 2007 Patriots and 2011, 2012 and 2016 Packers are the only teams to do it.
