The Washington Redskins will try to extend the Eagles’ string of home-field miseries when they play Sunday at Philadelphia.

The Eagles are winless in four games at home this season and have lost 10 straight home games dating to 2012.

“I don’t think it’s bad luck,” Eagles quarterback Nick Foles said in a midweek conference call with Washington-area reporters. “I don’t know what it is. I really don’t. I don’t know why it’s fallen like it has. But we can’t really try to let it psych us out. I mean, we’re excited to play at home.”

The Eagles are 5-1 on the road.

“I feel like we’ve done a good job on the road,” Foles said. “But we really need to win one at home for our fans…. We’re striving to get them a win at home.”
