Credit score dropped 100 points after opening a new CC

My credit score dropped from 749 to 651 in a month after opening a new Amex blue cash everyday card.  Any idea why there is such a huge drop?

 

My info:

I have 5 open accounts and my average age of open credit lines dropped from 9 months to 8 months.

Credit card utilization stays 1-9% for 5 months

Total credit line is 9500.

Hard credit inquiries: 6

Are you sure no new derogatory information has been reported to the CRA's?  I would think your scores wouldn't drop that much with a new open account.

Yes, I am pretty sure that there is no derogatory information on my credit report.

Where did your score come from, and was the beofre and after score from the same source?

+1  I've seen my silly FAKOs do that, but FICO seems to not mind as much.
