The Philadelphia Eagles have a relatively quiet 2019.

The 2019 Draft is a relatively quiet one for the Eagles, but they still draft some key starters for their offense. They stay at 32 and select wide receiver Deebo Samuel (South Carolina). They select running back Miles Sanders (Penn State) with their first second-round pick. They use their other second-rounder to trade back into the third round and select offensive guard Connor McGovern (Penn State).

The 2019 season is another exciting one for Eagles fans. Despite the Birds catching the injury bug, Watson leads the team to a 10-6 record, and they end up the fourth seed in the playoffs.

They beat the fifth-seeded Seahawks with relative ease, and use rookie Miles Sanders’ legs in conjunction with Watson’s arm talent to upset the second-seeded Packers. However, their playoff run gets stopped by the top-seeded 49ers in the NFC Championship Game thanks to an excellent defensive performance by San Francisco.
