The Philadelphia Eagles have been perfect to begin the 2022 season, going 8-0 to kick the year off. After seeing their dominance over the first eight weeks, many are already wondering if this team can run the table and end the year with a Lombardi trophy.

However, quarterback Jalen Hurts knows there's a ton of work to be done before even considering those fairytale endings.

Hurts simply stated "We haven't accomplished anything yet" after earning an eighth straight win on Thursday night. It's clear the QB isn't getting ahead of himself, because he knows Philadelphia has to just take things one step at a time to get where they want to go.

This is perfect reminder for Hurts to issue to his team. Some could easily be caught up by a perfect start and already be envisioning a ring on their finger. However, beginning the year 8-0 doesn't mean this team is owed anything. They have to keep their foot on the gas or be at risk of getting complacent and losing their hunger.

The Eagles have justly emerged as a legit Super Bowl contender due to their efforts. They have a top-ranked defense that can force turnovers at will, and their dual-threat offense led by Hurts means they can hang with anyone.

There's a ton to like about their chances to end the year with a championship, and FanDuel Sportsbook agrees. The Eagles own the second-best Super Bowl odds at +500.
