NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

In a game that came down to the wire, the Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Oakland Raiders on Thursday Night Football. Andy Reid’s team is now 5-2.

Do you know what this means?

I think you do.

Your Philadelphia Eagles are now in sole possession of the best record in the NFL at 5-1.

They’re on top of the league.

Now, it’s not like this means a ton. The Chiefs are in a different conference. Their loss doesn’t really impact the Birds all that much. And the Eagles obviously haven’t played as many games as the Chiefs yet.

But that’ll change on Monday night when the Eagles host the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field. It’s already a big game as far as the NFC East is concerned. Leaving Week 7 with the NFL’s best record would certainly be a nice bonus for the Eagles.

Earlier this week, I wrote that there’s a case to be made the Eagles are the best team in the NFL. It’ll be really difficult to argue otherwise if they win on Monday night.
