Ea­gles

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - 2018 Nfl Preview Capsules -

13-3, 1st in divi­sion and Su­per Bowl cham­pi­ons.

Re­turn­ing from a dev­as­tat­ing knee in­jury, Wentz must prove he can stay healthy and pro­duc­tive for a whole sea­son. He has looked very good so far.

Af­ter the Ea­gles traded for him last sea­son, Darby was hurt in the opener, missed eight games and wasn’t phe­nom­e­nal when he came back. Tom Brady threw for 505 yards in the Su­per Bowl, and a lot of those came against Darby. It’s a prove-it sea­son.

The first pick in this year’s sec­ond round, Goed­ert had a solid train­ing camp. With the team not re­sign­ing Brent Celek and Trey Bur­ton, Goed­ert has an open path to rel­e­vance.

The un­drafted rookie shined in the Su­per Bowl vic­tory. He’ll have a big­ger role this year. He can run and catch, and might be a re­turner.
