Crack in Brick help. Foundation issues or water proofing issues?

We have a horizontal crack between two layers of brick on one side of our house, right where the brick starts to go below grade. I would say it's about an inch overhang. Here are some pictures of what it looks like. Does anyone have any insight as to what might be causing that or how to fix it? This crack occurs between two window wells (which are both below grade) and is right about where brick meets soil.

It's hard to say what caused the crack, without more info. It's easy enough to patch that section but it would be nice to know what caused it.
