The wins keep piling up. And the doubters keep piling on.
Lose your star quarterback, your MVP candidate, and that's bound to happen. Certainly the Eagles' Super Bowl chances took a significant hit when Carson Wentz walked off the field in Los Angeles with a torn ACL.
Still … the Eagles have the best record in the NFL. They locked up the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs Monday night at the Linc, where they're 13-2 over the last two years — the best home record in the league since opening day 2016.
Win a home game and they're in the NFC Championship Game. Win two and they're in the Super Bowl.
"For us to even have success, we have to have that us-against-the-world mentality," Malcolm Jenkins said. "And I think it's so important for us to lock up that home-field advantage because now all of the teams that they want to talk about being frontrunners and favorites to win have to come through us.
"And if you ask anybody in this locker room, 'Do we think that we can win a game against anybody in the Linc on any given Sunday,' I think that answer would be yes, especially with the NFC Championship Game or the Super Bowl being on the line.
"Winning a home game … I’d take those odds."
Things haven't come easily for the Eagles lately. After winning nine straight games by an average of 17 points, they've lost to the Seahawks and scuffled to beat the Rams, Giants and Raiders, all in games that were in the balance in the final minutes.
But they've won them.
Overall, they've won nine straight home games, the longest active home winning streak in the NFL and fourth-longest home winning streak in franchise history.
"We're going to be facing good teams (in the playoffs), but I like to think we're a good team ourselves," Corey Graham said.
"I think people underestimate what we're able to accomplish. We've got 13 wins for a reason. Everybody's thinking just because we play somebody good that we're going to be down and out, that we can't win, but you don't win 13 games by mistake. We're a good team too and they're going to have to come here and play."
It's easy to get so focused on the Eagles' issues that you lose sight of the big picture.
And the Eagles have found ways to win three straight games, all with Nick Foles either starting or entering the game with the Eagles trailing.
No playoff-bound team has a longer winning streak. Only the 49ers have a longer winning streak leaguewide, winning four straight to go from 1-10 to 5-10.
Winning ugly is still winning.
"We need to be playing the best football at the end of the year," Zach Ertz said. "Any team in the NFL this time of the year wants to be peaking. I think we have a lot of good players on this team, and we have guys with a lot of pride that are going to figure this thing out.
"We have three weeks until we play a playoff game, so there’s time to improve and time to get better. That is all we are focused on.
“We have to play a complete game. I wouldn’t say we have to do anything crazy. Last week, the offense played great and the defense didn’t play great. This week, the offense played horribly and the defense played great. We just have to put it all together. It’s not panic mode by any means.”
After a meaningless game this weekend against the Cowboys at the Linc, the Eagles will sit out wild-card weekend before opening the playoffs the weekend of Jan. 13-14 at the Linc.
"We've played great at the Linc so far and not to have to travel anywhere and you're talking about winning one home game and we're in the NFC Championship Game," Jenkins said.
"That's all we're guaranteed right now, but if we were able to advance farther than that, everything has to come through the Linc, and that's a good place to be. We think our fan base can bring a little bit of an advantage, so we're excited to be home."
