DO SUPER BOWL-BOUND EAGLES HAVE ANY REAL WEAKNESSES?

Projected record (12-4)

Strength: The Eagles have the best defensive front in football. They have seven defensive linemen to have played 250 or more snaps this season, and all of them have at least 15 total pressures, with Brandon Graham leading the team on 41. As a group, they can get after the quarterback and stop the run, and give the back end of this Eagles defense a fantastic platform.

Weakness: It’s not easy to find too many glaring concerns on this Eagles roster. Jason Peters (above) going down at left tackle is an issue, with Halapoulivaati Vaitai already surrendering three more sacks than Peters had before he went down, but the biggest concern may be in coverage on defense, where the play of Patrick Robinson – currently PFF’s fourth-ranked cornerback – feels unsustainable. The good news is potential reinforcements on the horizon with Ronald Darby to offset any drop in play:
