Philadelphia Eagles. 1. team. 54. . 3-0.

Jalen Hurts, and the offense has the Eagles flying high after three games.

The top team in the NFC East is none other than the Eagles. They’ve cruised through the first three games of the season to an undefeated record just like everyone predicted, right?

One of the main reasons the Birds are soaring is QB1, Jalen Hurts. He’s putting on a show and placing his name in early MVP consideration. He’s thrown for 914 yards while tossing four touchdowns versus only one interception. He’s third among all NFL quarterbacks in passing yardage, just behind Tua Tagovailoa (Miami Dolphins) and Josh Allen (Buffalo Bills).

Jalen isn’t only shredding defenses with his arms. He’s still among the best dual-threat signal-callers in the game having rushed for 167 yards and three more touchdowns on the year.

Wide receivers A.J Brown and DeVonta Smith have torn opposing defenses to shreds as the duo has combined for 558 receiving yards and two touchdowns in three games. Tight end Dallas Goedert has made his mark as well as he’s racked up 168 yards and reached the end zone as well.

Let’s talk about some defense.
