The Eagles stand alone with the NFL’s best record after 8 weeks

Important context.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Commanders Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles now stand alone with the best record in the NFL after eight weeks.

At 7-1, they are the league’s only one-loss team.

The Kansas City Chiefs also entered Week 8 with a 6-1 record but they shockingly got beat by the Denver Broncos on Sunday, 24 to 9.

There is no trophy for the Eagles’ current distinction. But it’s still worth pointing out for the sake of context since there’s been a lot of (understandable) ire about how the team has played this season.

No, the Eagles aren’t perfect. They have some real flaws. And they’re about to be tested in a big way. Just look at their upcoming schedule:

Week 9 vs. Dallas Cowboys (5-2)
Week 10 bye
Week 11 at Kansas City Chiefs (6-2)
Week 12 vs. Buffalo Bills (5-3)
Week 13 vs. San Francisco 49ers (5-3)
Week 14 at Dallas Cowboys (5-2)
Week 15 vs. Seattle Seahawks (5-2)

That is a gauntlet.

But those teams have their own issues as well. And they’ve manifested in more losses than the Eagles have suffered to this point.
