The Philadelphia Eagles are off to a start we knew they were capable of. However, I think they are outplaying a lot of other people’s expectations.

There are a ton of media outlets that have recognized the Eagles as one of the best teams in the league, and a few that think Philadelphia is the best team.

When you look at the roster, and the way this team is built, we knew the success would come. Now, they are just proving people wrong.

This team has everything. The offense is comprised of players that are great for the passing game, and the run game, making them one of the most balanced teams in the league. Then, add in the fact that Jalen Hurts is looking like one of the best quarterbacks in the league.

The defense is stacked at every level. They have a pass rush. They have a great run defense. The linebackers are doing their job, and the defensive backs are looking like one of the best groups in the league.

Now, the media is taking notice of the individual players, and giving them credit. Recently, Pro Football Focus named their ‘team of the week’ and a few Eagles players made the cut.

DeVonta Smith was named the wide receiver one of the weeks, and Lane Johnson was named the right tackle of the week. As for defense, T.J. Edwards was named the linebacker of the week, and Brandon Graham was named the EDGE rusher of the week.

That’s not all, though. They gave their offensive player of the week to DeVonta Smith, who is the most deserving, in my opinion. This is why Bryant Horn of PFF chose Smith for the award.

“The former Alabama duo of Jalen Hurts and DeVonta Smith erupted on the way to a 24-8 beatdown of the Washington Commanders. Along with an acrobatic circus catch to reset the sticks on the 1-yard line, Smith caught eight of his 12 targets for 169 yards and a touchdown. His 91.9 receiving grade was the highest of any receiver this week, and he averaged 21.1 yards per reception.”

Smith finished with eight catches for 169 yards and a touchdown. Johnson didn’t allow a single pressure against a great Washington Commander pass rush.

Graham finished with five quarterback hits, 2.5 sacks, a pass deflection, a forced fumble, two tackles for loss, and six total tackles. Edwards finished with 10 tackles, the most on the team, two tackles for loss, one sack, and two quarterback hits.

Both sides of the team balled out on Sunday against the Commanders, so it feels good to see the team get a little bit of recognition.
