History might be on the side of the 2023 Philadelphia Eagles.

The Philadelphia Eagles are once again off to one of their best starts in franchise history. While the games have not always unfolded as we would like, the win-loss total stands at 8-1. That's the best in pro football, and that's all that matters.

As Philly enjoys its bye week, thoughts of grandeur are on our minds, especially seeing as how this team has seen favorable results when they have produced eight wins in their first nine games. Just for kicks, let's take a look at the prior occasions where they identically started the season.

Trust us on this one. This list will put a smile on your faces.

Each time the Eagles have gotten out of the gates quickly with an 8-1 start, great things always seem to happen.

Winning the first eight of nine games is no easy feat in the NFL. Ask any team that has done so, and they'll most certainly tell you.

There have been ups and downs. They have been highs and lows. One thing is certain. None of that will matter if the Birds hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
