The Philadelphia Eagles secured a spot in the 2014 NFL Playoffs after winning the NFC East in 2013. The team wasn't expected to win in a division with the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys, but they pulled it off thanks to Chip Kelly's implementation of a new offensive style. Here are five reasons why Philadelphia will do it again in 2014.
Just three years removed from college at the University of Georgia, Brandon Boykin led the team in interceptions last season. If he can continue to improve and not plateau any time soon, Boykin could quickly become an elite cover-corner.
It’s fast, it’s unpredictable and it made the Eagles one of the most exciting teams to watch in the NFL. Chip Kelly’s fast-paced offense gives opponents headaches and will continue to do so in 2014.
Many think that Nick Foles’ success was a fluke, but as long as receivers step up for the Eagles in 2014, expect a decent season for the young QB. Still a work in progress, he benefits from such an explosive offense.
Last season, the Eagles finished 10th in the NFL in opponent rushing yards allowed per game and last in opponent passing yards allowed per game. In a division with Eli Manning, Robert Griffin III and Tony Romo, the 32nd ranked passing defense is a bit misleading when a lot of the time opponents were playing catch-up. There’s nowhere to go but up with this young defense.
McCoy is the most explosive back in the NFL. The Eagles led the NFL in rushing yards in 2013; don’t be surprised if they do it again in 2014.
