EAGLES COULD GO 11-5 IN 2020 AND STILL MISS THE PLAYOFFS!

By Teddy Brenner

We think the Eagles are headed to 11-5 record in 2020.

And here is our rational:

All the additions at receiver will rejuvenate the downfield passing game, and Carson Wentz will turn in an MVP-caliber season.

Darius Slay shuts down opponents’ No. 1 receivers while another free-agent addition, DT Javon Hargrave, adds juice to the front four as the Eagles look a lot like the 2017 edition.

However, injuries could strike again.

Wentz could go down as he did in 2017 and ’18, and second-round selection Jalen Hurts may not be ready for prime time.

The pass rush—especially DE Brandon Graham, 32, and DT Fletcher Cox, 29— might show its age, and a blitz-heavy scheme allows too many big plays.

In the competitive NFC, 11-5 might not be good enough to make the postseason.
