3. 43 Team Sacks

Despite taking a step back from their whopping 70 team sacks in 2022, this squad still has a ferocious pass rush. Philadelphia has registered 41 team sacks, which is tied for 13th in the NFL.

Linebacker Haason Reddick is the leading force screaming off the edge in the defensive front. Reddick uses his blazing quick get-off and amazing hand placement to get past offensive lineman. The Temple product racked up a team-high 11 sacks with 12 tackles for loss and 37 total tackles.

Defensive tackle Jalen Carter is making his presence felt in his rookie campaign. Carter has been a very disruptive player in the interior. The Georgia product utilizes his superb first step to explode through gaps and terrorize opposing teams in the backfield. The 2023 first-round pick logged 30 total tackles, eight tackles for loss, and six sacks.

Defensive end Josh Sweat gives the Eagles another effective pass-rusher. Sweat is able to use his long arms to bring down ball carriers with ease. The Florida State product moves well in open space with the acceleration to chase down quarterbacks. Sweat is second on the team in sacks (6.5) with seven tackles for loss and 43 total tackles.

Being able to generate pressure and get after the opposing quarterback is key for every team in the playoffs but not every team has the personnel to execute. Philadelphia possesses the difference makers up front to do so. Look for these studs upfront to wreak havoc for the Eagles' defensive unit.
