Eagles make first-ever visit to PBS this Sunday

Coming off their bye week with a win in their rear-view mirror, the Bengals face a formidable foe as the Philadelphia Eagles make their first-ever visit to Paul Brown Stadium. Though still battling for their playoff lives at 5-4, the Eagles rank in the NFL’s top 10 in scoring (fourth), scoring defense (10th), net offense (seventh) and net defense (ninth). They also rank tied for fifth in turnover differential (plus-six).

The Bengals are coming off their first win of the season, 21-19 two weeks ago over Jacksonville, and will look to carry over that momentum against the Eagles.

The Bengals have not hosted Philadelphia since 1994, but have never lost to the Eagles in Cincinnati. The Bengals are 3-0 all-time in Cincinnati (all games played at Riverfront Stadium), and they lead the overall series 7-3. Against the Eagles, they have their highest winning percentage (.700) against any foe except Houston (3-1, .750).
