Through three games, the Philadelphia Eagles have a legitimate claim as the best team in the NFL.
If you thought the Eagles’ 2-0 start was a product of playing two bad opponents, and that Carson Wentz would be exposed against a real opponent, Week 3 was startling. The Eagles destroyed the Pittsburgh Steelers, 34-3. It was never competitive. Wentz was great. And as I said on Sunday, if the Steelers were considered Super Bowl contenders before that game, what does that make the Eagles?
There are only five 3-0 teams. Four of them have a dominant quality win (sorry, Baltimore Ravens). Only the Eagles, however, have three blowout wins. They have a point differential of plus-65, which is unbelievable for three games. Last year the Denver Broncos, who won Super Bowl 50, were plus-59 for the entire season. The New England Patriots are second in point differential this season at plus-36 and nobody else has a differential of plus-30 or more.
