The Eagles will be going to the playoffs for the third straight season this year.
Quarterback Carson Wentz is expected to be back from his back injury in time for the opener, Pro Bowlers such as defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and tight end Zach Ertz are back, and they added top newcomers such as running back Jordan Howard and defensive tackle Malik Jackson in the offseason.
Of course, a lot can happen between now and the first game against Washington on Sept. 8. But I see them fighting it out with Dallas for the NFC East title.
