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.

Jordan Davis, defensive tackle

Jordan Davis' 2023 story began with chapters stating that he had trimmed his frame to a weight that would be more conducive to ensuring better stamina and more effective play. He flashed early to the delight of Birds fans (2.5 sacks, five additional quarterback hits, and 19 tackles during Philly's first seven games). Unfortunately, however, he hasn't produced a sack or a quarterback hit in the past seven.

A first-round selection in 2022, Davis landed in Philly with the hope that he'd help this team collapse pockets and clog running lanes. While this may be a sophomore slump, it's relatively easy to state he shouldn't be given up on. He has to begin making things happen more consistently though.

Josh Sweat, defensive end

Josh Sweat is in a bit of a slump too. He stacked 6.5 sacks, 16 QB hits, and 24 tackles during the first nine games. He has added zero sacks, 12 tackles, and six QB hits to the defensive tally since the bye week.

Simply put, he's one of the Eagles' premier pass rushers, and he has to be better. Let's hope he turns things around and does so quickly.
