Review: Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles have been the most entertaining team and have played way above expectations. Before this season they were expected to go 10-7 at best. They have since proved everyone wrong and after beating the 7-5 Titans with a score of 35-10 the Eagles improve to 11-1.

A big reason for their success is the play of their quarterback, Jalen Hurts. There wasn’t much expected of him before this season but he has gone above and beyond. He has improved to one of the best quarterbacks in the league and is in the race for the Most Valuable Player Award. The other main reason for the jump in success from last year to this year is the players the eagles have added to their roster. In the offseason they made the most trades and moves to acquire players the organization has ever made.

During the draft Eagles Organization traded a first round pick and a third round pick to the Titans for one of the top receivers in the league, A.J. Brown. Then signed one of the top lock down corners, James Bradberry. Just before the season started they also traded fifth and sixth round picks for a top tier safety from the New Orleans Saints in C.J. Gardner-Johnson. Since the season started they have traded and signed a few more big names and really good players. They acquired pro-bowlers Ndamukong Suh and Robert Quinn. With all these moves the Eagles are at the top of the league and are looking to make a playoff push and contend for the championship.

I personally can’t wait each week to watch this electric team play. The Tennessee Titans game is so fun to watch. I hope this team is able to make a deep playoff run and keep proving everyone wrong. If they are able to finish strong they will be 16-1 and the number one seed and have a first round bye in playoffs. It will be fun to watch if they are able to win out and finish with a team all time best record.
