The team is second in the NFL in total passing yards with 3128 while being in the top 10 in rushing with 1190 yards.

A look at the Eagles’ run in the 2022 NFL season:

The team started their reason with a hard-fought 38-35 win over the Detroit Lions where the team led in passing as well as rushing, winning the game courtesy of an interception by cornerback James Bradberry.

The team then went on a two-game run where they did not let their opponents, Minnesota Vikings in Week 2 and Washington Commanders in Week 3 score more than 10 points, restricting them to just seven and eight points respectively.

Against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4, the team conceded 14 points in the first quarter but then rallied back to a 29-21 comeback victory thanks to RB Miles Sanders’ two rushing TDs.

They faced Kyler Murray-led Arizona Cardinals next week and won the game through the two running touchdowns by QB Jalen Hurts who had his then-season-best performance when running with the football, finishing with 15 carries for 61 yards.

They welcomed their NFC East rivals Dallas Cowboys to the Lincoln Financial Field and beat the high-flying Cowboys by a score of 26-17 as they just totally dominated the second quarter scoring three touchdowns during that time to go 6-0 for the season.

Wide Receiver A.J Brown was the hero for the team in Week 7 as he had his career-best 3-TDs in a 35-13 thrashing of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The team outplayed the Steelers in the passing game, accumulating 290 passing yards to just 158 yards while also having a far better 3rd down efficiency (7/12 to 1/12).

What’s next?

The team will have a rematch from Week 3 against the Washington Commanders in a game where they are deemed favorites.
