At the quarter point of the of the NFL season, the NFC East-leading Eagles are the only team with both their offense and defense ranked in the top six. They're fifth in offense, averaging 417.8 yards per game. The defense is sixth, allowing 298.3 yards per game.
Only one other team is ranked in the top 10 in both categories. The Detroit Lions are sixth in offense and 10th in defense. But they're just 1-3.
``We have the potential to be a great team, a great team,'' two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Trent Cole said Wednesday. ``We can take this thing all the way to the Super Bowl. We just have to take each game one by one and win games.''
