Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur says that the team needs to score more points in order to win games in the NFL.

Pat Shurmur has said that the Philadelphia Eagles need to score more points if they are to end their losing streak.

The NFC East side have not won a game since the opening week of the season.

The offensive coordinator told reporters: "I think we need to score more points. Certainly in the red zone we want touchdowns. I think when you look at or when I looked at what we've done in the red zone you know, we've kind of stopped ourselves in some areas.

"You get a bad play or two down there and you put yourself in a third-and-long situation. You know, we need to be probably more efficient there in that area out of all of our downs in the red area.

"I think generally speaking, our guys are battling. We faced two pretty good fronts. We need to score more points. Let's face it. We need to score more points and we've got to do what we've got to do on offense to help us win."

The Eagles face the New York Giants on Sunday.
