Philadelphia Eagles: Who are the unsung heroes of the playoffs?
Certain players have gained plenty of praise for their 2018 playoff performances. But who are some players who haven’t quite got the attention they deserved?
The 2017-2018 season has been nothing short of spectacular for the Philadelphia Eagles. After many season-ending injuries occurred, the Eagles are surprisingly one win away from owning the Lombardi Trophy for the first time ever. Although they have been doubted for most of the season, they are a little less than one week away from shocking the football world.
Before the Eagles suffered their most significant loss, Carson Wentz was the face of the number one team in the NFC. Maybe it was due to the fact that number eleven was and still remains a contender for the NFL’s most valuable player award. Although he had an outstanding season himself, everybody wrote the Eagles off for the rest of the season when Wentz went down.
Now, after two big-time performances by Nick Foles, he has become the new face of the Eagles heading into Super Bowl LII. Many other Pro Bowl selected players have balled out in the playoff phase of this journey as well. Guys like Fletcher Cox, Malcolm Jenkins, and Alshon Jeffery have played some excellent football. But who are some of the guys who may have had flown under the radar in the playoffs despite having a major contribution?
