Eagles All-World left tackle Jason Peters will be 38 years old next January 22.
And the Super Bowl will be played 13 days later in Miami Gardens.
So JP and the Eagles training staff have to maintain his body for the long haul.
He has played 337 snaps in the Eagles’ five games, well over 90 percent of the team’s offensive plays.
This is a huge number, especially for a 37-year old.
Peters’ ability to stay on the field and continue to play at a high level at left tackle has been a reason the offense has functioned the way it has this season (28.2 points per game, seventh in NFL).
“I just take care of my body,” Peters told Eagles.com. “You learn to do the little things to keep you straight. I feel good. It’s fun to be out there. I just have to stay on top of it and things are going to be fine.”
This week, Peters and right tackle Lane Johnson have their most difficult test of the season, collectively, going against Vikings edge rushers Danielle Hunter (five sacks) and Everson Griffen (three sacks). They key Minnesota’s defense.
