5 Eagles who must rebound from recent slumps for Philly's regular-season homestretch

A handful of Eagles have seen their production slip as of late. Let's hope they turn that around in the regular season's homestretch and in the postseason.

D'Andre Swift, running back

He's been used minimally at times and sparingly at others. Still, with three games remaining in the 2023 NFL season, D'Andre Swift finds himself among the NFL's top rushers. Let that sink in for a second.

Entering Week 16, his 896 yards rushing trailed Kyren Williams (953), Raheem Mostert (966), James Cook (968), and Christian McCaffrey (1,292). There have been questions asked stemming from there being a theory that Swift's light workload is a sign that the Eagles fear injuring him, but his contributions will be needed in the postseason.

Quez Watkins, wide receiver

Once upon a time, last season to be exact, Darius Slay stepped in front of a microphone. He proclaimed that three of his offensive teammates possessed superhero traits. The entire football community heard that and went bananas.

Stick with us for a second. We promise you a point.

We realize Batman isn't a superhero. That's for all of you comic book heads out there, so please refrain from emailing us. They will be ignored. Still, with all of that being said, let's get back to football.

Here's the skinny. Quez Watkins, Philly's 'Fast Batman', has been anything but a superhero. Now in the final four regular-season games of his rookie deal (and maybe his Eagles career), it would be nice if this guy gave us anything. He most certainly failed to do so on Monday Night Football. The next time he fights for the football or breaks up an interception that is thrown in his direction will be the first time that he has ever done so.
