The Eagles' first training session following the Thanksgiving win over Dallas will be on Tuesday, but later today at 1 PM head coach Chip Kelly will host a press conference which you can watch live online or on our app. We'll recap all of the day's news and notes on Eagles 360 at 5 PM. Until there, here are the 5 Things To Know Today for December 1, 2014 ...
1. Eagles Share League's Best Record
Following Sunday's action in Week 13, the Eagles are 9-3 and sit atop the NFC East after the Thanksgiving win over the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles are one of five teams in the NFL with a 9-3 record, the best mark in the league. Two of the Eagles' conference rivals, the Arizona Cardinals and the Green Bay Packers, are also 9-3. In the AFC, the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos have nine victories on the year.
2. Up Next, The Defending Champs
The Eagles welcome the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday for a 4:25 PM kickoff. The Seahawks are 8-4 and sit just one game behind the struggling Cardinals for first place in the NFC West. Seattle also enjoyed a mini-bye after it played the Thanksgiving nightcap, a 19-3 win over the San Francisco 49ers. The Seahawks have won their last two games, both over division rivals, by the identical score of 19-3.
The Seahawks only scored one touchdown, but it proved to be more than enough. Cornerback Richard Sherman had two interceptions as the Seahawks' 'D' held 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to just 121 yards passing. Running back Marshawn Lynch had over 100 yards rushing for the third time in four games. Quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 236 yards and didn't turn the ball over.

4. Eagles Only Team To Win In NFC East
After beating the Cowboys, the Eagles got to sit back and watch the Giants and Washington tumble on Sunday. In fact, the Cowboys are the only team that can beat the Eagles for the NFC East title now as the Giants and Washington share the same exact record of 3-9.
The Giants allowed Jacksonville to rally back from a 21-0 deficit as kicker Josh Scobee's field goal with 28 seconds remaining gave the Jaguars a 25-24 win. Jacksonville's defense sparked the comeback with two touchdowns - a fumble recovery in the end zone and a fumble return for a touchdown. It was the first time that the Jaguars scored two defensive touchdowns in the same game. The Giants have lost seven straight.
Meanwhile in Indianapolis, Andrew Luck threw a career-high five touchdown passes and eclipsed the 300-yard passing mark for the 10th time this season in a 49-27 win over Washington. Colt McCoy threw for 392 yards and three touchdowns, but it wasn't enough to keep Washington from losing its fourth-straight game.
