Philadelphia Eagles Team Stats 2019 Philadelphia Eagles Stats

9-7, 1st NFC East

vs SEA

9:40 pm GMT, 1/5

After a Super Bowl victory in 2017, the Philadelphia Eagles were disappointments last season, going only 9-7. In fact, they weren’t even able to make it out of the divisional playoff round, losing to the New Orleans Saints 20-14. Some would even argue the Philadelphia Eagles got lucky to even make it past the Chicago Bears in the wild card round when Cody Parkey missed a 43-yard field goal that would’ve ended the Eagles’ season. Their 2018 defense ranked in the top half of the league and will look for a repeat performance this year.

On offense, the Eagles were great through the air, ranking 7th in passing yards and 11th in passing TD’s. They boast one of the best mixes of skilled position players in Alshon Jeffrey, Nelson Agholor, and Zack Ertz. Though there isn’t a dominant #1 back in their backfield, Philadelphiawill rely on newcomer Jordan Howard to hopefully take the starting job and run away with it. They’ll have to lean hard on Carson Wentz staying healthy for all of this season as Eagles hero, Nick Foles, is now wearing a Jacksonville Jaguars jersey.

Does Desean Jackson have anything left in the tank?

After falling out of favor with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Eagles were able to acquire Deshaun Jackson and a 2010 7th round pick for only a 2019 6th round pick. If Jackson pays off, this is likely one of the biggest steals of the entire offseasons for the Eagles. After the trade, Philadelphia quickly inked the speedster to a $27 million contract for the next three years. He will be a great addition to Wentz’s arsenal that also offers Alshon Jeffrey, Nelson Aghlor, and Zack Ertz. There’s no question that this group of receivers will form one of, if not arguably the best receiving core in the NFL.

Last season, Wentz struggled with passes 20 yards or deeper to his right. He only completed 1 pass in 15 attempts that went for 39 yards. That position that received so little completions is exactly where Jackson will play. He gives Wentz the deep pass catcher he needs and factors to be another explosive piece in this offense. The fact that the Eagles got Jackson for basically nothing makes this a home run move by the front office.

What effects will the Eagles resigning Jason Kelce and Isaac Seumalo have on the running game and protecting Carson Wentz?

Jason Kelce has been a staple in Philly’s line for years and will continue functioning as their center after agreeing to a new contract extension. He’ll now be under lock through 2021 and becomes the highest paid player at his position. While that’s a high price to pay, it’s not easy to replace someone so familiar with the Eagles offense and so skilled at the position. Meanwhile, Isaac Seumalo is now signed onto the future and looks to be a staple of the Eagles’ future offensive lines. Though he doesn’t have the pedigree and polished skills as his counterparts, Philadephia obviously saw something in him that led them to offer the contract.

Keeping the offensive line intact was surely a top priority as it will help protect Carson Wentz and keep the running game going. Though there wasn’t anything spectacular about Philly’s 28th ranked rushing attack, the line will help buy enough time for their QB to decide which of his talented receivers to target. Look for running backs to even join in blocking pass rushers as the Eagles look primed for a pass heavy offense in the 2019 season.

Can Philadelphia get a full season of Carson Wentz?

Nick Foles is no longer on the roster which means Carson Wentz’s backup is now Nate Sudfeld. Foles had been the Eagles’ savior in the playoffs the last two years but that role will now fall back on Wentz’s shoulders. He will face harsh scrutiny if he can’t perform like his former backup and praise if he similarly succeeds. Expect this to be a rollercoaster of a season for Wentz who will have to prove himself as an elite quarterback and most importantly, stay healthy.

Ever since his rookie season where he started every game, Wentz has missed 8 games within the past two years. That surely can’t hold if he’s the only good quarterback left on Philadelphia's depth chart. Even when he’s healthy, Wentz hasn’t proved that he can be elite. His career completion percentage of 63.4% leaves a lot to be desired and his QBR dropped to 64.9 last season, down from 77.2 in 2017. If the Eagles have any hope for playoff contention, it starts with keeping their quarterback on the field instead of on the sidelines.
