The Philadelphia Eagles are showing some signs of resurgence.
After not making the playoffs in 2020, they claimed the final postseason spot in 2021 with a 9-8 record.
Unfortunately, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made quick work of them during Super Wild Card Weekend.
But while they didn’t win that game, the Eagles have stamped their dominance of NFC East over a long time.

The tweet above by Sunday Night Football on NBC shows a graphic wherein the Eagles have14 playoff wins since 2000.
That number is as much as what the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys, and Washington Commanders had over the same time period combined.
The Giants have the most with ten, including two Super Bowls in four years with quarterback Eli Manning.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys have three.
Finally, the Commanders are sitting with one.
Eagles Are Trending Up
While the Cowboys remain the division’s top team, the Eagles could narrow the gap through the 2022 NFL Draft.
They have three picks in the first round which they could use to draft young but talented prospects.
Philadelphia could also swap their draft capital for star players at positions of need.
Head coach Nick Sirianni did a commendable job in discovering his offense’s strength.
Another year of experience will help Hurts and DeVonta Smith improve.
Their aging defense needs some reinforcements as well, especially in the trenches.
