WOW! EVEN THE NFL’S WEB SITE IS JUMPING ON EAGLES’ BANDWAGON!

EAGLES: They ride Carson Wentz and Jim Schwartz’s defense into the postseason.

The Eagles last made the postseason in 2013, carried by Nick Foles’ epic (?) season, LeSean McCoy rushing for 1,000 yards and a buoyant wideout (DeSean Jackson). Last year’s receivers couldn’t keep the passing game afloat, Darren Sproles evolved (or devolved) into Philly’s biggest weapon on offense and the team sputtered down the stretch. Wentz’s supporting cast was anything but, well, supportive. That’s where Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and LeGarrette Blount come in. The Eagles have the firepower to bump scoring by 20 percent while increasing their yards per play (28th in the NFL last year) with a few more vertical connections. Schwartz’s defense should presumably play faster in Year 2 after being the team’s backbone in 2016. Why not Philly?
