Eight Yards, Down and Out is the fourth book collection of FoxTrot strips, featuring the strips originally published in the remaining months of 1990 and most of the first half of 1991. Its contents were reprinted in FoxTrot en Masse.

The book's cover art is based on the earliest story arc reprinted in the book, in which Roger and Peter play a game of football in the backyard, with the title being based on dialogue said in the August 22, 1991 strip.
