Philadelphia Eagles. 1. team. 54. . 7-0. Previous: 1st

The Philadelphia Eagles are the NFL’s best team.

The Philadelphia Eagles find themselves on top of the field after eight weeks of action by virtue of their 7-0 record, but that isn’t the only reason, they’re here.

Their offense averages 28 points per game and 394.5 yards per game. Their defense keeps giving their offense extra opportunities as they average an astonishing 2.3 turnovers per game while holding their opponents to under 300 yards per contest. The competition hasn’t been able to keep up.

Jalen Hurts has also continued to take grow by leaps and bounds, displaying accuracy downfield in Week 8 in ways he has never shown before. Every week we see him take command of the offense by improving as a passer.

Make no mistake, Hurts is still a threat as a scrambler having gained over 300 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns in 2022. While Brian Daboll and Josh Allen may be the current front runners for Coach of the Year and league MVP, if the Eagles keep this up, it will be hard to deny that Nick Sirianni and Jalen Hurts both deserve consideration.

Aside from being dominant on the football field, the Eagles have also captivated fans with an energy that has woken up sports fans nationally.

From the Batman craze to a locker room full of characters with high character, this is a team that’s easy to root for. They’re also a team that’s tough to beat. No one has beaten them yet, and with a favorable schedule, they could win for a while.
