Top stats to know: Patriots fall in back-to-back games

The New England Patriots lost back-to-back games for the first time since September 2012, as the Philadelphia Eagles put together a 35-28 victory on Sunday. New England is now 10-2 on the season.

Here are the top stats to know about the upset.

• The Patriots entered this week with 56 straight games played since their previous two-game losing streak. That was the longest active streak, with the next-highest at 16 by the Panthers, according to the Elias Sports Bureau research.

• New England allowed 35 unanswered points for the first time in the Tom Brady/Bill Belichick era. They held a 14-0 lead with 7 minutes, 47 seconds left in the second quarter before giving up 35 straight. The last time they had done so was Sept. 26, 1993 against the Jets (trailed 45-0).

• The Patriots trailed 35-14 in the fourth quarter of the game, which was their largest deficit of the season. Since 2009, they had trailed by 14 or more points at home in the fourth quarter just once (2012 against the 49ers).

• This was Tom Brady's first multi-interception game since Week 11 of last season against the Colts, when he also threw two interceptions.

• Brady’s pick-six in the third quarter was the longest of his career, and the first he has thrown in the red zone. He has two pick-sixes on the season for the first time since 2001.

• New England's wide receivers had six drops for the second game this season, which is the most such games in the NFL.

• The Eagles' defense and special teams combined for three touchdowns. The Patriots had allowed three non-offensive touchdowns in their previous 32 games combined.

• According to Elias Sports Bureau research, the only other time the Patriots allowed three non-offensive TDs in a single game was Sept. 29, 1985 against the Raiders. Tony Eason threw two pick sixes, and the Raiders scored another touchdown after a Craig James fumble.

• The Eagles have 18 touchdowns from defense and special teams over the past two seasons, which is eight more than any other team.
