Yesterday, I analyzed the Eagles first quarter offensive progress. Now, it’s time for the defense.
In a word, it’s been dominant. They rank third in the league in total yards allowed (and fifth in pass defense) and have had multiple games this season where they’ve looked almost like the 1985 Bears for a good chunk of the game.
Of course, that’s not always good enough, so we’ll see how they do overall.
Like the offense, I’ll break this down by position (line, linebackers, secondary and specialists, since special teams really don’t warrant its own category) and offer my analysis.
