The Eagles went 5-3 at home last season, but the teams coming to Philadelphia this season — Ravens, Rams, Saints, Seahawks among them — put an industrial-strength slant on the schedule for the NFC East favorites. A peek at the depth chart post-draft leaves one to wonder if there’s enough pass rush (again) and cornerback depth (we repeat).

Upset watch: Aggressive could be defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz’s middle name, and he’ll throw a blitz of every size and shape at Lamar Jackson when the Ravens come to town. The Eagles are looking to create their own Jackson knock-off in rookie Jalen Hurts, which is sure to be an intriguing storyline entering this meeting of 2019 division winners.

Longshot wager: At 25-1 odds via PointsBet, quarterback Carson Wentz could be worth a wager as NFL MVP. He set a franchise record for passing yards in 2019 and did it without much to brag about at wide receiver. The talent is abundantly upgraded at the pass-catching positions, Wentz has another year in the system and, if healthy, has already played at an MVP level for extended stretches.
