The Philadelphia Eagles have dominated their opponents this season.
Not only did they end the regular season with a 14-3 record, but they have also outscored their playoff opponents, 69-14.
Generally, when looking at great teams, you can often point to their record against teams with winning records as an indicator of prolonged success.
It will likely not surprise Eagles fans that this team is playing at a historic rate.

This season, the Eagles had a record of 9-1 against teams with winning records.
With this achievement, the Eagles are tied for third all-time in this category, just behind the 2003 and 2004 New England Patriots.
Heading into the Super Bowl, Eagles players and fans alike are excited about the run that they have been on, winning games against opponents that have also been successful on the season.
However, there is an additional monkey on their back heading into this game.
Although they do not play each other often, the Kansas City Chiefs have beaten the Eagles in their last three matchups, with the most recent being a 42-30 victory in the 2021 season.
The Eagles, for whatever reason, haven’t been able to find success against the Chiefs as of late.
Will they be able to reverse the curse during the Super Bowl?
Patrick Mahomes has been suffering from a high ankle sprain, something that could impact him against the Eagles.
If he is not 100 percent healthy, the Eagles’ chances of winning will go up exponentially.
Led by Jalen Hurts, as well as a strong defense, this Eagles team is no joke.NEXT: Eagles GM Sets A Dominant NFL Record
