The Philadelphia Eagles were rolling along at this time last year with an unbeaten record and the look of a potential NFL champion.
That is not the case in 2018, as they have struggled to find their rhythm and their game as every opponent has them circled on the schedule. That's just the way it is when a team has won the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the first in Philadelphia's long and not-always-glorious history.
The Eagles are limping along with a 2-3 record, having dropped consecutive games to the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings. Both of those opponents had issues, but they righted themselves against the defending Super Bowl champions.
