The Eagles are making a strong case that they're the best bird-team in the NFL after back-to-back victories against the Atlanta Falcons and the Seattle Seahawks.
The Eagles improved to 5-3, doing something they've occasionally faltered doing under Andy Reid: beating teams they should. The offense has been more productive (though it had to overcome a slow start in the first quarter at Seattle) – and it's no coincidence that's happened as a result of Brian Westbrook being back in the line-up.
The defense has also responded, allowing only 14 and 7 points in the two games. Thanks to the Giants destruction of the Cowboys, the Eagles aren't in last place anymore in the NFC East, but they've still got a way to go before thinking playoffs. A W next week versus those same Giants would do a lot for that.
Oddly enough, however, we'll know for sure who the best bird team is as in three weeks the Eagles play back-to-back games against the remaining avians: the Ravens and Cardinals.
