Go Figure and By The Numbers

Go Figure

23 – Number of plays the foreskins ran before the Birds got to snap the ball
20 – Number of career touches by Chris Polk
4 – Number of touchdowns scored by Chris Polk on those touches
7 – Previous times that the Birds have started 3 – 0
7:06 – Bird’s time of possession in the first half, but they still managed to score 21 points
11 – Length of each of Jordan Matthews’ touchdown catches yesterday


By The Numbers:

When the foreskins scored on their first possession, it was the first time the Birds have given up points to an opponent on their first drive since Game 5 of last season.

Yesterday’s win was the sixth in a row at The Linc.

Chris Polk’s 102 yard TD return was the first one for the Birds since Quintin Demps’s did it in 2008. Polk’s 102 yard return ranks as the third longest in Eagle history.
