10 NFL sleepers who could make a surprise Super Bowl run
The Philadelphia Eagles were the last team standing in the NFC East last season, as the battle for the top spot went down to Week 17. Quarterback Carson Wentz was finally healthy for a full 16-game slate, the first time that has happened since his rookie season, and was able to return his team back to the playoffs.
Unfortunately, Wentz would end up being hit by the injury bug once again, but this time it happened once the playoff started. A devastating head shot from Seattle Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney knocked him out of the team’s Wild Card game, and Josh McCown had to step in during the Eagles’ loss.
This season, Wentz returns as the starter, and they have a solid backup in rookie Jalen Hurts, who is an upgrade over McCown. In addition, Jalen Reagor fills a need at wide receiver, Miles Sanders is one of the better young running backs in the NFL, and Jatavis Brown joins a defense that improved this offseason as well.
