I considered ending the article there. What else is there to say? There’s every reason to feel good concerning the Birds straight away. Jalen Hurts is playing just like the NFL MVP. The defense hs tightened up. The vibes are immaculate.
Because it currently stands, the Eagles still have a path to becoming only the second NFL team to ever go undefeated en path to winning a championship. The primary being the 1972 Dolphins.
The Eagles even have a path to becoming the primary NFL team to ever go 17-0 within the regular season given the addition of an additional game as of last 12 months.
In fact, the Eagles accomplishing those feats is hardly a given. There’s way more season to go. The Birds are 3-0 entering what may be their hardest test yet in a house battle against Doug Pederson’s Jacksonville Jaguars.
In case you’re curious how the last remaining undefeated team during a given NFL season typically fares, Wikipedia actually has an article on that topic. Here’s a have a look at the outcomes since 2000:
As you may see, only three teams did not make the playoffs in any respect. 10 teams ended up making the Super Bowl but only one in every of them actually won the large game.
Early signs point to the Eagles’ 2022 season being quite the memorable one. We’ll see in the event that they can proceed down that path.
