The Philadelphia Eagles can again represent the NFC in the Super Bowl if they put it all together.

Many things have gone right for the Philadelphia Eagles through their first nine contests of the 2023 season. They enter their Week 11 matchup, one that pits them against the Kansas City Chiefs, with an 8-1 record. It's hard to be upset about that. It's even more difficult to be upset with some of the positive signs.

Jalen Hurts appears to be hitting his stride following Philly's lone defeat at the hands of the New York Jets. QB1 threw three interceptions in that one. During the last three games, he has an 8:1 passing touchdown-to-interception ratio. He has also scored two rushing touchdowns.

Turnovers continue to be a concern. Jalen has also lost two fumbles over that span. He has 11 total turnovers through the first nine games.

Had those issues resulted in losses, this would be more of a topic of discussion. They say winning solves everything. That may not be true, but eight victories in nine games tend to lessen the angst we feel over some of the negatives.
