In the City of Brotherly Love, the streak is over and the legend grows.

Heading into Sunday's NFC East Division clash against the Washington Redskins, the Philadelphia Eagles were riding a mind-numbing 10-game losing streak at home.

But thanks to another well-engineered game by quarterback Nick Foles, the losing streak died, ending 413 days of misery for Eagles fans. It was their first victory at home since beating the New York Giants on Sept. 30, 2012.

With their 24-16 triumph, the Eagles not only put their Lincoln Financial Field flop to rest, but moved a half game ahead of the idle Dallas Cowboys in the mess that has been the NFC East.

The Eagles, now 6-5, also sank the Redskins (3-7) further into the basement.. They can pretty much say over and out in the U.S. capital.
