The Philadelphia Eagles should have one of the top offenses in the NFL once again during the 2019 season if all goes according to plan.

With the start of training camp only a few weeks away, the Philadelphia Eagles realize the potential this team has on the offensive side of the football, especially if Carson Wentz manages to stay healthy.

After earning another trip to the playoffs for a second year in a row last year before falling to the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional Round, the Eagles would love nothing more than to have another shot at earning a second trip to the Super Bowl in three seasons.

Luckily, when looking at the talent Philadelphia has to work with on both sides of the football, there’s every reason to believe this will have a good chance of happening during the 2019 season, although that’s always easier said than done.

But while Wentz’s health is going to be a key factor as previously mentioned, the Eagles will need their quarterback’s supporting cast to come through on their end as well to make things easier on offense, which hopefully shouldn’t be an issue.

This past week, ESPN’s Bill Barnwell decided to put together a list of the best and worst offensive arsenals across the NFL heading into the 2019 season, with Philadelphia coming in hot at No. 4, only behind the Cleveland Browns, Kansas City Chiefs, and Los Angeles Rams.

Barnwell makes it clear his list is based off skill-position talent without taking into consideration the impact made by the quarterback, offensive line, or scheme, meaning for the Eagles to finish in the top five, they clearly have amazing talent to work with.

From a strong receiving corps consisting of players like Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz to an improved backfield with new additions in Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders, Philadelphia’s offense has all sorts of potential for 2019.

Some Eagles fans will fight to make the claim that they deserve to be a little higher on this kind of list, but from a realistic perspective, the reasoning Barnwell provides is right on the money.

Of course, as great as it is to hear all of the high expectations surrounding Philadelphia, everyone knows this means nothing if the team doesn’t live up to the hype on the field, so here’s to hoping the Eagles come through once September finally arrives.
