Andy Reid's Record 2 Weeks After a BYE is Not Impressive

Do you like obscure stats? Then I've got a great one for you.

Andy Reid is of course infamous for his 12-0 record off a BYE week, well, I decided to look into his record for the 2nd game after a BYE, which is what tonight's matchup reflects. In his last 5 games, the Eagles have lost 4 of them. Last year's loss after the BYE certainly stings with Eagles fans since that was their loss to the hapless Oakland Raiders, Quarterbacked by Jamarcus Russell. McNabb laid somewhat of a stinker that game (0 Tds, 0 INTs, 269 yards), but that's the game Reid decided to throw the ball 46 times and only run it 16 (against a 29th ranked rushing defense). Brilliant!

Here's how the Eagles played their 2 games after the BYE....

2009 - Beat Tampa, then lost @ OAK 13-9 

2008 - Beat ATL, then won @SEA 26-7

2007 - Beat Jets, then lost to Bears 19-16

2006 - Beat Redskins 27-3, then lost to TEN 31-13

2005 - Beat Chargers, then lost @DEN 49-21

2004 - Beat CAR, then beat @CLE 34-31 in OT **** 

2003 - Beat BUF, then beat Skins 27-25

2002 - Beat TAM, then beat NYG 17-3

2001 - BEAT NYG, lost to @OAK 20-10

2000 - week 16 BYE - only 1 regular season game left. 

1999 - week 16 BYE - only 1 regular season game left. 

*** - I have to add an asterisk. Going to OT against Cleveland is pretty lame...although Jeff Garcia was the QB for CLE this game.

Two other notable, handicapping stats:

- Redskins are 3-0 ATS (Against the Spread) when facing a team with a winning record and 4-0 ATS on natural grass

Currently, the line is Eagles -3.5 (opened at 3).
