The Eagles are the NFC favorite, but they can increase their chances of winning the Super Bowl even more with these trades. 

The Philadelphia Eagles are undefeated, and stay that way through Week 8. They’ve had their bye, so they sit at 7-0. If they can win their final 10, they will end the year entirely undefeated, which, while difficult and maybe even unlikely, isn’t all that outside of the realm of possibility.

They’ve looked like the best team in the NFC and one of the two or three best in the entire NFL. There’s little-to-no doubt that they’ll be representing the NFC in the Super Bowl barring an injury, disastrous implosion, or major return to form for someone like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Frankly, there are few holes in the Eagles’ roster, especially after they acquired Robert Quinn.

They don’t have gaudy, high-yardage receiving stats, but that’s more a design of the playbook than a discredit to Eagles receivers. When called upon, A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith have been great.

But going 17-0 takes an excruciating amount of effort and a little bit of luck, too. So much can and will go wrong in the span of a 17-game season, and having as many parts in place as possible to help keep things in order is key.

Here are some trades they can make to make their case even more compelling.
