The tweet shows the team in first in five different defensive statistics.
With them dominating in interceptions, sacks, takeaways, turnover percentage, and QBR allowed, NFL teams are finding it difficult to overtake the Eagles.
However, their offense is just as dominant, as they are in the top three is several statistics as well.
With the Eagles firing on all cylinders, they control their playoff destiny.
While their win on Sunday gives them a playoff spot, they can clinch the number one seed with a few more wins.
With the remaining games having some divisional opponents, the Eagles’ fight for a playoff bye week won’t be easy.
However, the Eagles have shown they aren’t afraid of any team who crosses their path.
They also have the luxury of having gone against some easy teams to reach their 12-1 record.
While the schedule might be easy, the Eagles still had to fight for those wins they got this season.
That fight has turned them into one of the best defensive units in the NFL for 2022.
If they can dominate against playoff teams, then the Eagles can easily reach the Super Bowl this season.
