The Eagles could quite possibly be 2-2 on the season had it not been for their reliable kicker, Jake Elliott.

For the second time this season, kicker Jake Elliott bailed out the Eagles when they needed him the most. He was again perfect, converting all four of his field goal attempts. He also nailed both of his extra point tries, but his overtime heroics are all that anyone will rember about this one.

Jake's 100th game as an Eagle ended exactly as his first game in midnight green, with a game-winning kick to ensure victory. He's been one of the MVPs of this season so far.

Flash back to Week 1 of the season, he also made four field goals in Philly's five point victory over the New England Patriots. Three of them were 48 yards or longer. In close games and when the game is on the line, he has delivered in the clutch time and time again.

Now that the Eagles are 4-0, they join the San Francisco 49ers as the only undefeated teams left in the NFL. The Dallas Cowboys sit close behind them at 3-1, but through about a quarter of the way through the season, Philly is meeting expectations for the most part. Let's hope they continue their streak next week as they travel west to tackle the Los Angeles Rams.
