NFL Off-season Needs For Every Team

The Eagles Offense

Sure, the Eagles are playing out of their collective minds defensively, but they also finished in a virtual tie with New England in scoring by putting up 28.6 points per game to rank third in scoring. Not only that, but the 38 points they scored on Minnesota’s league-leading defense in the NFC Championship tells me they could do the same to New England’s far more generous ‘D’.
