The season hasn’t gone precisely as Philadelphia Coach Chip Kelly had hoped, but there are some positive signs for the Eagles, who are tied with Dallas atop the NFC East at 3-3.

The Eagles gained 425 yards in Sunday’s 31-20 victory at Tampa Bay, making Philadelphia one of four teams in NFL history to gain at least 400 yards in each of its first six games.

The other three are this season’s Denver Broncos, the 2007 New England Patriots and the 1983 San Diego Chargers.

What’s more, the Eagles are balanced. They have gained 1,628 yards passing and 1,071 rushing, making them the only team since the 1970 merger to throw for at least 1,600 yards and run for at least 1,050 through the first six games.
