The Philadelphia Eagles are shaping up to be one of, if not the best team in the NFL this season.
Boasting an 11-1 record, they have the best record in the league, and have a fast track to home-field advantage throughout their eventual playoff run.
As they say, the rich get richer.

Because of a trade with the New Orleans Saints, the Eagles currently hold the number five pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
They are in a prime position to go far into the playoffs, and will also be able to re-load in next year’s draft.
This pick from the Saints will assuredly stay in the top-ten and has the chance to move up to number two overall, depending on how the Saints finish the season.
Do The Eagles Have Any Glaring Needs?
Given their dominance this season, it’s evident that the Eagles have a deep roster, and don’t have a ton of holes in any marquee positions.
They are second in average points scored with 28.2 and are seventh in average points allowed, with 18.8.
The Eagles are clicking on both sides of the ball.
However, there are always areas to improve.
One position that they could target is a member of the secondary.
While their current team members such as Marcus Epps, Reed Blankenship, and Darius Slay are doing fine at their respective positions, adding a rookie to this core would certainly help boost their roster.
They could also add a tight end, given Dallas Goedert‘s injury.
Only time will tell for this talented Eagles roster.
