Brandon Graham, defensive end

Fan-favorite Brandon Graham has seen a reduction in defensive snaps. That has impacted his statistics, but despite the transition, he's as vocal as ever.

B.G. is respected by teammates. He's still making a difference and has made timely plays this season.

Graham's strip-sack of Tom Brady in Super Bowl LII is cemented in the Eagles fans' minds as one of the most memorable plays in the franchise's history. He knows what it takes to persevere through an NFL season's difficult moments. His leadership has especially been key during the club's recent losses that left the club discouraged. Look for him to provide a few rallying cries.

Entering Week 15, Graham has three sacks, three tackles for loss, and eight solo tackles in 282 snaps this year. That latter number represents 31.51% of the defense's total so far. He's on pace to finish the regular season with the lowest tally of his career if we eliminate injury-riddled seasons in 2011 and 2021.

During a December 12th appearance on 94 WIP's Morning Show with Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie he had this to say:

"There's no sense in crying about it, let's fix it. We're going to be out there really trying to look ourselves in the mirror and just know that yeah, we're 10-3, but we've got some stuff that we've got to be better on so we can make this run."

Graham does his part both vocally in the locker room and through his play on the field. He's one of the examples of what it takes to fuel an Eagles Super Bowl run.
