Since there are no more bye weeks for the remainder of the 2010 season (and every NFL team has played 9 games), it's probably a fair time to take a quick look at how the Eagles have fared in comparison to the rest of the NFL is some key team statistical categories:
|Offense||Eagles Rank||NFL Leader||NFL Loser|
|Total Points||2nd (257 points)||Patriots (258)||Panthers (104)|
|Total Yards per game||3rd (400.2 yards per game)||Chargers (420.2)||Panthers (250.6)|
|Passing Yards per game||9th (249.1 per game)||Chargers (312.4)||Panthers (156.8)|
|Rushing Yards per game||3rd (151.1 per game)||Chiefs (165.3)||Broncos (76.8)|
|Defense||Eagles Rank||NFL Leader||NFL Loser|
|Total Points||22nd (209 points)||Packers (143)||Cardinals (261)|
|Total Yards per game||11th (325 yards per game)||Giants (270.2)||Redskins (415.3)|
|Passing Yards per game||16th (221 yards per game)||Saints (166.3)||Texans (301.3)|
|Rushing Yards per game||12th (104 yards per game)||Steelers (63.2)||Bills (166.9)|
|Sacks||6th (tied with 26)||Packers (28)||Buccaneers (8)|
|Interceptions||1st (16)||(Falcons are second with 14)||Bills (2)|
|Offense/Defense||Eagles Rank||NFL Leader||NFL Loser|
|Turnover differential||1st (+12)||(Falcons are second with +9)||Vikings (-11)|
|Point differential||6th (+48)||Packers (+78)||Panthers (-111)|
|Time of Possession per game||9th (31:55 per game)||Giants (34:54)||Cardinals (26:02)|
The offensive numbers are pretty easily explained - It's an explosive offense that's putting up big numbers both in the passing game and the running game. Really not much more to say than that. Michael Vick is clearly a serious candidate for MVP of the NFL, and the weapons he has around him are incredibly fast and dynamic.
The defensive side of the ball is a little more interesting - While the yardage and point total numbers aren't impressive, the Eagles are dong a fantastic job getting pressure on the QB and creating turnovers. They're 1st in the NFL in interceptions (16) 1st in turnover differential (+12), and 6th in sacks (26).
