The winning ways of the Eagles continue as they remain the best team in the NFC.

The high-flying, magical ride for the Philadelphia Eagles continues. Their undefeated streak sits at eight games. Their most recent game was a sloppy victory, but it’s not always going to be perfect. All that matters is coming out of the game with a win, and after watching the Philadelphia Phillies and Philadelphia Union both lose hard-fought deciding championship games, the city of Philly needs the Birds now and more than ever.

Thankfully, Philadelphia sports fans can take solace in knowing the Eagles are still on top of the mountain not only in the NFC East but the NFL as a whole.

It wasn’t that long ago that we took an in-depth look at pro football’s ‘Money Division’. During Week 9’s slate, the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants sat idle during their bye weeks. Their most recent games led to some varying results almost two weeks ago in Week 8. The Washington Commanders are the owners of the division’s worst record, but they’re now a more competitive team since Taylor Heinicke has replaced Carson Wentz at the helm of the offense.

The NFC East continues to prove it’s among the NFL’s best divisions. The questions are about whether or not these teams are improving. Here are a few answers as we take a few moments to take an in-depth look at the division’s four members.
