In a battle for the okayest team in the NFC East, they out okayed the talented, but stale Cowboys. The Pederson offensive elixir has been flat since the magical 2017 season, but the contributing factors were unfortunate injuries and uneven performances from ill-fitting personnel choices. The vastly superior Miles Sanders has replaced Jordan Howard, and Greg Ward, Deontay Burnett, Nelson Agholor, and Robert Davis have been replaced by, well, actual wide receivers. The top of the East looks to be the same two-horse race, but it should be much higher caliber than the first-round fodder for the other conferences over the past few seasons.
The Eagles offense hasn't been bad since Frank Reich left, but it definitely hasn't been what it was when they won the Super Bowl two years ago. Head coach Doug Pederson is the primary schemer and playcaller, but he does lean on his offensive coordinators to help script sections of the game. After two down years, Mike Groh was fired from the OC position. Instead of hiring a replacement, Pederson will cut out the middle man and simply fill the position himself this year. Jim Schwartz will stay on as the defensive coordinator.
