The Second Time Around For the Eagles' Defense

We know the Eagles Defense is good...#3 in the NFL good. And when they have matched-up against the same QB more than once this season the Defense has only gotten better.

Maybe these stats are meaningless, but it can't be a coincidence that when the Eagles match-up against the same QB for the second time this season, the stat line for the opposing QB gets worse...

- Game 1 Romo: 21/30, 312 yards, 3 TDs, 1 interception
- Game 2 Romo: 21/29, 183 yards, 0 TDs, 1 interception

- Game 1 Manning: 17/31, 191 yards, 2 TDs, 1 interception
- Game 2 Manning: 13/27, 123 yards, 1 TD, 0 interceptions

- Game 1 Campbell: 16/29, 176 yards, 0 TDs, 0 interceptions
- Game 2 Campbell: 18/33. 144 yards, 0 TDs, 0 interceptions

In the second game each of the QBs have thrown for a lower completion percentage, fewer yards, and fewer TDs (0 is the lowest Campbell could go).

The stat line for Warners' first game against the Eagles D this season: 21/39, 235 yards, 3 TDs, and 3 interceptions. History would say that a clunker awaits Warner this Sunday!
