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.
