No team in the department handled a winning record in 2020. All 4 members of the NFC East have their work cut out for them prior to opening weekend.
If you consist of Washingtons wild card loss to the eventual Super Bowl champion Buccaneers in the wild card playoffs, each of the teams lost at least 10 games in 2020.
And maybe a forgettable 2020 offseason in terms of the offending line was the most damning problem in general.
They will rejoin Pro Bowl center Jason Kelce, who did begin all 16 video games this previous season, as well as left guard Isaac Seumalo (who missed out on 7 contests) and right take on Lane Johnson (missed out on 9 video games)– both which missed considerable time.

The last time a team in this department won at least 10 video games remained in 2018, when the Dallas Cowboys recorded the leading spot with a 10-6 mark. All informed, its been pretty rough going for the NFC East as of late. Each of the groups lost at least 10 video games in 2020 if you include Washingtons wild card loss to the ultimate Super Bowl champion Buccaneers in the wild card playoffs.
Can any or all of these clubs make substantial improvement over the next two months? Or will there be a 3rd successive year of a quartet that cant reach double digits in the win column?
Philadelphia Eagles: Offensive line prepared to rebound after an uncomfortable 2020.
How did things come apart so rapidly for a group that had reached the playoffs the previous 3 seasons, winning a pair of NFC East titles and a Super Bowl (LII) in 2017? From poor quarterback play to a dropping defense. And perhaps a forgettable 2020 offseason in regards to the offensive line was the most damning problem overall.
Even before the Eagles took the field last September in Week 1 at Washington, left take on Andre Dillard and ideal guard Brandon Brooks would be lost for the season. The franchise had actually not intended on bringing back seasoned Jason Peters but when Brooks decreased, the thought was he could line up within. He wound up playing at tackle once again (by means of Kevin Patra of NFL.com) and began eight games but likewise serving 2 stints on injured reserve when Dillard was lost.
The bottom line here is that the Birds ended up allowing a sensational 65 sacks. Dillard and Brooks appear to be ready to go. They will rejoin Pro Bowl center Jason Kelce, who did start all 16 games this past season, along with left guard Isaac Seumalo (who missed out on 7 contests) and right deal with Lane Johnson (missed 9 video games)– both which missed out on significant time. Can this group rebound this summer season and be all set for the opener at Atlanta?
