The Eagles have faced the Texans four times in their history and have won all four games by double digits. This is one of four matchups between current franchises where one team is undefeated against the other (Eagles 10-0 vs. Jets, Texans 4-0 vs. Bears, Vikings 4-0 vs. Texans).

Last Saturday, Houston came back from a fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Jets, 29-22, its NFL-best eighth comeback win of the season. The Texans have been turnover-free in seven of their last eight games; the only other teams to do that in the Super Bowl era were the Patriots in 2010 and in 2016-17.

The Eagles have won three of their last four games to stay in the playoff race. Philadelphia has eight takeaways over those last four games after totalling seven in its first 10 games.

Philadelphia has played an NFL-high 11 games decided by seven points or fewer, going 5-6 in those games, while Houston is tied for second with 10 such games (6-4). The Texans went just 1-4 in games decided by seven points or fewer last season.

Deshaun Watson was sacked six times last week and has taken an NFL-high 52 sacks for the season. Watson has three wins this season when he takes 6+ sacks -- all other players in the NFL have combined for just two such wins (one each by Jimmy Garoppolo and Dak Prescott).

Nick Foles beat the Rams last week in his first start against them since they cut him before the 2016 season. Foles has five wins as a starting quarterback this calendar year (including postseason), and four of them have come against teams with 10+ wins.
