Here are a few Philadelphia Eagles that continue to shine.

Stud: Dallas Goedert, Tight end.

Philly fans are starting to see more and more that Dallas Goedert is a big threat to opposing defenses and his abilities to be the Eagles’ tight end of the future. Goedert was the most productive offensive weapon in Week 12 for the Birds, totaling seven catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. His ability as a route runner, his catch radius, his ability to block, and Zach Ertz’s injury concerns aren’t helping 86 get the long-term contract that he wants.

Stud: T.J. Edwards, Linebacker

The entire linebacking corps played well above expectations against the Seahawks and was a large part to all but making Seattle’s run game non-existent. One linebacker, in particular, needs a shout out though.

T.J. Edwards was key in covering the middle of the field and slowing Chris Carson and Russell Wilson from breaking any big runs. Edwards tallied seven total tackles and 1.5 tackles for a loss on the game and has given Philly fans some hope at that position moving forward.

Stud: Javon Hargrave and Fletcher Cox, Defensive tackle.

Another unit that deserves a lot of credit was the Iggles defensive line, but Fletcher Cox and Javon Hargrave stood out amongst the rest during Week 12. Cox and Hargrave were relentless on Seattle’s offensive line, breaking through and applying constant pressure to Russell Wilson. They were key in shutting down several plays that killed promising drives by the Seahawks. As a pair, they amassed six total tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss, and a sack.
