The biggest change from 2017 to 2019 for the Eagles is at quarterback.
Nick Foles started in 2017 with Carson Wentz out. Now Wentz is back and healthy.
Wentz is supposed to be a better quarterback than Foles. The Eagles seemed to play better with Foles, however.
The Eagles have completely turned over their running back stable. Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders (above) have been a solid 1-2 punch this season. — Peters is injured and might not play Sunday against the Patriots. Dillard would continue to replace him at left tackle. Either player will be an upgrade over Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who started at left tackle in Super Bowl LII.
The Eagles’ secondary was a weakness through the first half of the season, but with Ronald Darby and Jalen Mills back and healthy, it might not be such a rough unit over the second half. — The Eagles have lost just six starters from Super Bowl LII, while the Patriots have lost 12. It’s rare for the Patriots to face a team with better continuity.
