Week four of the 2022 NFL season was an exhilarating rollercoaster that featured a full slate of exciting games, with some even going to the wire. Here is what stood out from the recent match ups including the Eagles extending their undefeated streak:

 Are the Eagles a Super Bowl contender?

The (4-0) Philadelphia Eagles are flying high after picking up their fourth straight victory of the season, defeating former Eagles coach Doug Pederson and the Jacksonville Jaguars 29-21 (2-2) at home.

The Eagles returned from a 14-0 deficit, largely thanks to a stout defense that bothered Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence for the entire contest.

The Eagle’s defense caused the Jaguars’ offense to turn the ball over five times, including a strip sack from outside linebacker Haason Reddick in the final minute.

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts played his best game of the season so far, finishing 16/25 for 204 yards and one interception. Although Hurts didn’t throw any touchdowns, he was able to get the ball down the field through bad weather conditions.

The Eagle’s rushing offense looked lethal behind RB Miles Sander, who rushed for 134 yards.

Its been pure dominance for the Eagles this season, becoming the only undefeated team in the league. They have overpowered each opponent so far on both ends of the ball, and Hurts is playing at a MVP level.

The sample size is still too small to decipher if the Eagles can march to another Super Bowl. However, crazier things have happened in the NFL.

New York Jets come from behind again

In an exciting thriller between two pillars in the AFC, the New York Jets could came up big in the fourth quarter picking up a four-point victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

After 20 unanswered points from the Steelers, the Jets scored 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to win the game.

Jets quarterback Zach Wilson made his season debut, while rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett took over for Mitch Trubisky in the second half.

The Pitt product looked rough in his regular-season debut, throwing an interception on his first career pass, but he was able to score on a quarterback sneak to lock-in his first career touchdown.

Wilson went 18/36 passing with one touchdown and two interceptions but looked elite in the fourth quarter, sealing the win for the Jets.

Pickett will remain the starter in Pittsburgh for the rest of the season, giving Steelers fans some hope moving forward while the Jets get a chance to see what their team looks like with a healthy Zach Wilson.
