Record set by Eagles today – but not a good one

Posted at 10:03 PM, Nov 18, 2018

The New Orleans Saints win over the Philadelphia Eagles tonight wasn’t close, and it turns out the loss set a record.

So far this season, it’s usually Saints QB Drew Brees who has been setting records, but tonight it was the Eagles.

When the Eagles – who won the Super Bowl in January – lost by 41 points, it was the largest defeat ever suffered by a defending champion, according to the Eagles Wire.

The Eagles’ record is now 4-6, compared to the Saints’ 9-1.
