Did you realize that Kareem Hunt is the only RB to rush for more than 35 yards against this defense? What was the first team to use "Gang Green?" Wasn't it Buddy's team with Reggie, Clyde, Seth, et al?

And, I believe, we have been the only team (so far) that kept him from 100 yards in a game. And the only reason he had a decent statistical game was one play.

It sure was. That defense was ferocious. Not a weak spot on that D, which is amazing when you think about it. Usually, even with the great ones, there are positions that are a little soft. None on that D.

While I like what I see here today, I'm not even about to begin to compare them to Gang Green.

This ishow good the run D is per Roob:

• The Eagles have allowed just 394 rushing yards in six games. That's the fewest they've allowed in their first six games since 1954 — a span of 63 years! They allowed 342 the first six games that year. The only other seasons they've allowed fewer rushing yards at this point of the season were 1943 (384 yards) and 1944 (393 yards).

• Those 394 rushing yards allowed are also the fewest any team has given up six games into a season since the 2010 Steelers allowed 382.

• The Eagles are only the 20th team in NFL history with at least 750 rushing yards gained and fewer than 400 rushing yards allowed after six games and the first since the 2007 Titans.

• Kareem Hunt remains the only running back to rush for more than 35 yards against the Eagles this year. Of the 394 rushing yards against the Eagles, 122 were by quarterbacks and 32 by wide receivers. So opposing running backs have carried 82 times for 240 yards — which is 2.9 yards per carry and 40 yards per game.

• The Eagles have held four straight teams to 80 or fewer rushing yards. That equals their longest streak since 1992, when they did it five straight weeks. The franchise record is nine straight games, set over the 1990 and 1991 seasons. According to the Pro Football Reference database, that's the third-longest streak ever.

• The Eagles are on pace to allow 1,050 rushing yards this year, which would be the fourth-fewest since the league went to a 16-game season in 1978, behind only the 2000 Ravens (970), 2006 Vikings (985) and 2010 Steelers (1,004).

Going back farther, the 65.7 rushing yards per game the Eagles are allowing puts them on pace to allow the seventh-fewest rushing yards per game since 1940:

Thanks for the stats. I don't doubt they are good against the run. Also when Cox was out, the guys who filled in most of the time--Hamilton and Allen--are run stuffers.

If you are an opposing OC, do you want to attack that front 7 in the run game or take your chances against those CBs?

Other than KC, do any of the other opponents the Eagles faced have a good running game?

Yds per game: KC#2 Skins #7, AZ and NYG are two of the 3 worst.

Yds per attempt: KC#1, Skins #8, all other opponents in the bottom half.

We'll see what happens as the secondary gets healthy and they face teams with better running attacks. I expect the Eagles to still be good vs the run, just not historically good.
