On a night when the Eagles honored two of their greats from their past, their present team showed they are just as good as we once we thought they were.
The Eagles dominated every single statistical category including time of possession, rushing yards and red-zone efficiency. This was the type of effort the people of Philadelphia expected to see from their team following a very successful offseason.
With the New York Giants heading into a very brutal six-game stretch against several Super Bowl contenders including the Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints and the New England Patriots. And with the Washington Redskins moving backwards at an incredibly fast rate the NFC East appears to be a two-team race.
If so, the Eagles just got a mighty fine start against their hated rivals.
