2018 Eagles Season Preview & NFL Futures Lines
Looking for 2018 Philadelphia Eagles predictions? The Eagles won the Super Bowl and they look about as capable as any team of recent memory of repeating, in fact, you can make the argument they won it all missing their best player. That was because Carson Wentz was hurt. He is expected to be ready to go and might even be more motivated having missed out on being a part of their playoff success.

2018 Philadelphia Eagles Predictions: Roster Changes
Even though they are coming off a title win the Eagles definitely dd not stand pat. The offense is going to look very familiar but they have gotten deeper on defense, especially on the defensive line thanks to a couple of key acquisitions. They are building on a position of strength.
Michael Bennett was acquired via trade from Seattle and he will look to get another ring with the Eagles. Also, Haloti Gnata will be another big body in the middle of the defense.
On offense Mike Wallace will bring some extra speed to the Eagles offense. He can still get behind corners most of the time.
It is not a true roster change but the Eagles do have to manager their QB situation. Wentz is the future but might not be ready for week 1. Nick Foles is still in the fold.
LeGarrette Blount was an effective runner for the Eagles last year but they elected not to re-sign the big bruising back. Preferring to go with Jay Ajayi, who they acquired mid-season last year. .
Lots of new faces in backup roles for Philadelphia as they have swapped in and out some of their depth from a year ago. They need Zach Ertz to be healthy with Trey Burton and Brent Celek no longer on the roster.
2018 Philadelphia Eagles Predictions: Offense
Before getting hurt Wentz was having a wonderful season and was a big part of why they were having so much success. He is accurate and smart and can keep plays alive with his legs when need be.
As good as he and replacement Nick Foles was you can make an argument that it was the offensive line that was most critical to the Eagle’s success. It is intact and willing to protect for whoever is directing the show.
The Eagles want to be balanced and it will be up to Jay Ajayi to provide that. Ajayi is a sometime fantasty darling because he rips off huge games but with Philly it just never came together. Its possible his style might not be a great fit or that he just needs to get more comfortable. Hard to tell definitively yet.
Alshon Jeffery was a nice acquisition last year but right now he is hurt and is questionable for week 1. He is a key big body to feature in important situations so his absence will be felt. The rest of the receiving corps is more on the slight side so Zach Ertz could be even more of a focus as a result.
2018 Philadelphia Eagles Predictions: Defense
The defense was very good last season. They were the best rush defense in the NFL and were solid against the pass making for a strong unit overall. They were good at taking the ball away but not so over the top that make you think it was a magic season that can’t be repeated.
Philly was just OK at getting after the passer last year, thus the acquisition of Michael Bennett could be a key to unlocking some defensive improvement. If he is a menace he will not only grab a few sacks but also open up some opportunities for others as well.
2018 Philadelphia Eagles Handicapping: (Strengths/Weaknesses)
This is a team without an obvious weakness. Does that mean they are going to win a second title? Maybe.
I think more than anything this team is going to beat up on teams without an identity because they can play the way they want as well as play to their opponents weaknesses. Not a lot of teams can do both. Most only dictate play.
Everyone knows that Super Bowl teams often have a hangover. This team is really good but perhaps won’t dominate to the level expected of a championship group. I am looking to fade this group assuming there will be a little too much public support. They are going to win a lot of games though and the division.
2018 Philadelphia Eagles Prediction (Final Record): 11-5
The Eagles have some tough non division games but most of them are at home so I don’t see their regular season record dropping all that much from last year’s 13 wins.
While I am not expecting it, with that tough schedule this year’s Eagles could definitely be a high variance team. They get those extra first place teams on the schedule so their margin for error is going to be smaller this season. They are still a very good bet though.
