Why Don’t the Eagles Get More Respect?
The Philadelphia Eagles own the best record in the NFL this season and they rank in the top five in the league in Points Per Game (27.5), Rushing Touchdowns (21), and Offensive First Downs (253). The accolades for Jalen Hurts continue to pile up as he keeps setting the pace as the leader of this top-notch offense. One of the top betting favorites to win NFL MVP, Hurts has thrown 17 Touchdowns this year while only being picked off for Three Interceptions plus don't devalue Hurts' feet rushing for over 596 yards and scoring eight touchdowns.
Despite some fans and national media concerns about the Eagles' Defense, their defense has allowed the second-fewest Total Yards in the NFL and are number one in the league in Turnovers Forced. So why don’t the Eagles get more respect? On many national power rankings and talk shows, they don't have the Eagles ranked as the best or even second best in the league! So much love is shown for the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills along with the rival Dallas Cowboys, the Eagles are like Rodney Dangerfield: They get no respect!
This Sunday Afternoon, the Eagles will match up with a tough Tennessee Titans who are in first place in the AFC South division and they are 4-2 since their Bye Week. To silence the doubters and critics, the Birds need to make a statement by beating the Titans at home and put some fear into their divisional rivals they have on the schedule in the upcoming weeks!
