Today was first time Eagles won a game without a pass play of 20 yards since 2009 opener at Panthers
Won 38-10. Long catch: Avant 18 yards.

Interesting stat, but also a bit misleading.
The Eagles had a pair of long pass interference penalties that set up 2 of their 3 TDs. You don’t get those penalties if you aren’t throwing the ball down the field. It is true that the team didn’t complete a pass of 20 yards, but they did try to stretch the field a couple of times and it paid off.
