Philadelphia is heading into its third straight postseason. The Eagles were on top of the NFL world in Week 12 when they owned a 10-1 record.
Since then, Philadelphia has been in a slump, but this squad will stumble into the playoffs with one of the best squads in the league. Based on pure talent, they have a chance to win any contest. And there's even a few numbers that should only help fuel a Super Bowl run.
1. 128.6 Rushing Yards Per Game
Philadelphia's offense trots out one of the most skilled units. The Eagles have a mauling offensive line with a nice collection of impactful playmakers. They are eighth in total offense (357.8) and eighth in rushing yards per game (128.6).
This team had six players selected to the Pro Bowl, with five of them coming from the offensive side. Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson, and Landon Dickerson are three bullies up front who were chosen for the Pro Bowl. These three studs are consistently creating gaping holes in the run game with terrific finesse in pass blocking.
Running back D'Andre Swift is the bellcow in the backfield. Swift uses his solid vision as a ball carrier to quickly jump through the hole and pick up positive yardage. The 24-year-old is tied for ninth in carries (229) and fourth in rushing yards (1,049) with five rushing scores. He also gives them a nice receiving option coming out of the backfield.
Swift has 39 receptions for 214 receiving yards and another score. The Eagles will have plenty of different outlets to move the ball. Especially on the ground due to their dominating offensive line.
