The Philadelphia Eagles finish with NFL’s highest rushing yards total and they do so by at least 250 yards.

Though the NFL has evolved into a league that enjoys seeing high point totals and long TD passes, there’s nothing like some bully ball. There’s beauty in watching an elite offensive line once it gets rolling and seeing your team grind games out when there’s nothing the competition can do to stop them.

Watching these past two seasons has convinced us that the only thing that can stop the Philadelphia Eagles’ running game is their occasional desire to ignore it. Added weapons and a few games that we expect them to be leading in late will help spearhead another phenomenal season on the ground, They’ll finish as pro football’s top-ranked ground attack besting anyone finishing second by at least 250 yards.

There were only four teams that ended last year’s regular season with more rushing yards gained than the Philadelphia Eagles. Two qualified for the postseason, the Baltimore Ravens and the New York Giants. Two missed their opportunity, the Atlanta Falcons and Chicago Bears. Atlanta, New York, and Chicago might be trailing a lot in the fourth quarter of 2023’s grind. That means they may have to throw the ball more. We’ll see what happens with Baltimore.

Either way, we expect Philadelphia to produce a higher rushing yards total than anyone else. Atlanta, Chicago, New York, and Baltimore may have something to say about that though. Watch out for the Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, and San Francisco 49ers though.
