Football season is nearing its end, and the Eagles are flying straight for the finish line. In the current 2022 season, the Philadelphia Eagles have the longest winning streak. They have won 8 games consecutively, and during this streak, they’ve beaten their opponents by an average of 11.2 points. Will they ever lose?
The Eagles started this streak on September 11 in their first game against the Detroit Lions. It was a close game; the score was 38-35. This is a massive improvement for the Eagles since last year’s season was a four-game winning streak. The record for the highest winning streak is 21 by the New England Patriots. Will the Eagles fly past the record or have a shorter flight? I guess we will have to wait and see what the season upholds.
The Eagles have had painful losses in the past. They’ve been blown out of the super bowl, had a significant championship game loss, and more. This year they are upping their game and putting the past in the past. Maybe their brutal past is motivating them to prove the football industry wrong.
Although not the biggest football fan, I am intrigued to see how the Eagles will do for the rest of the season. Maybe the Philadelphia Eagles will be why I keep up with football. This team does everything. Every team is looking to cut off their winning streak. Hopefully, the Eagles can keep up the excellent work and soar to the 2023 Super Bowl. Make Philly proud!
