The Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. Antworten

It really sucked. Let’s take a look at what the loss means for their standings in both the NFC playoff picture and the 2019 NFL Draft order.NFC PLAYOFF PICTUREPLAYOFF TEAMS1 - Los Angeles Rams: 9-1 overall Youth DeAndre Carter Jersey , 6-1 conference2 - New Orleans Saints: 8-1 overall, 5-1 conference3 - Chicago Bears: 6-3 overall, 4-1 conference4 - Washington Redskins: 6-3 overall, 6-2 conference5 - Carolina Panthers: 6-3 overall, 4-2 conference6 - Minnesota Vikings: 5-3-1 overall, 4-2-1 conferenceIN THE HUNT7 - Green Bay Packers: 4-4-1 overall, 2-3-1 conference8 - Atlanta Falcons: 4-5 overall, 4-2 conference9 - Seattle Seahawks: 4-5 overall, 3-3 conference10 - Dallas Cowboys: 4-5 overall, 3-3 conference11 - Philadelphia Eagles: 4-5 overall, 2-4 conference12 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 3-6 overall, 2-4 conference13 - Detroit Lions: 3-6 overall, 2-4 conferenceDEAD14 - Arizona Cardinals: 2-7 overall Womens Jason Peters Jersey , 2-5 conference15 - San Francisco 49ers: 2-7 overall, 1-5 conference16 - New York Giants: 1-7 overall, 0-6 conferenceANALYSISHad the Eagles won on Sunday night, they’d have been second in the NFC East and seventh overall in the NFC standings. But they did not win. And now they’re third in the NFC East and 11th in the conference. They’re certainly not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs just yet. But there’s no denying that their season is on life support. It’s just hard to envision this team suddenly going on a run given the way they’ve played all season.2019 NFL DRAFT ORDERIf you’ve given up hope on the Eagles making the playoffs, perhaps you’re interested in looking ahead to the 2019 NFL Draft. If that’s the case, here’s a look at the current first round order via Tankathon.1 - Oakland Raiders: 1-82 - New York Giants: 1-73 - San Francisco 49ers: 2-74 - Arizona Cardinals: 2-75 - New York Jets: 3-76 - Buffalo Bills: 3-77 - Detroit Lions: 3-68 - Denver Broncos: 3-69 - Jacksonville Jaguars: 3-610 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 3-611 - Cleveland Browns: 3-6-112 - Indianapolis Colts: 4-513 - Dallas Cowboys: 4-514 - Seattle Seahawks: 4-515 - Atlanta Falcons: 4-516 - Philadelphia Eagles: 4-517 - Baltimore Ravens: 4-518 - Miami Dolphins: 5-519 - Green Bay Packers: 4-4-120 - Tennessee Titans: 5-4The 2019 NFL Draft will be important for the Eagles to try to rebuild a roster that clearly is in need of upgrades.D.J. Alexander: 6 things to know about the Eagles’ new special teams ace The Philadelphia Eagles made a successful waiver wire claim earlier this week when they were awarded linebacker D.J. Alexander. In order to better get know the Eagles’ new special teams ace, I reached out to SB Nation writers from his former two teams: the Chiefs and the Seahawks. Thanks to Arrowhead Pride and Field Gulls for the insight they provided. CHIEFS PERSPECTIVE(Answers by Pete Sweeney)1 - Can you sum up Alexander’s Chiefs career?John Dorsey and the Kansas City Chiefs selected DJ Alexander with a compensatory pick in the fifth round of the 2015 draft, with the idea that Alexander could play special teams and perhaps develop into a good inside linebacker (The Chiefs have done this with a number of rookies--Daniel Sorensen, Albert Wilson and Ben Niemann all come to mind). Part one of the idea hit, and Alexander actually made a Pro Bowl as a special-teamer, replacing Matt Slater when the Patriots made the Super Bowl in the 2016-17 playoffs. Alexander finished his Chiefs career with 701 snaps on special teams but only 57 defensive snaps.2 - Why did the Chiefs trade Alexander last year?The Chiefs traded Alexander in what I figured to be a chance-of-scenery move. It hadn’t worked out in Seattle for LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, the return for Alexander. John Dorsey must have liked Pierre-Louis’ ceiling a bit better. On a side note, Pierre-Louis is no longer a Chief.3 - What are Alexander’s strengths and weaknesses?Alexander’s strengths as a Chief were speed and explosiveness to go along with his willingness to play on all of the Chiefs’ special teams units. For whatever reason Youth Alshon Jeffery Jersey , Alexander could never carve out a role as an inside linebacker despite the age and decline of Derrick Johnson and the revolving door next to him. A quick glance at his Seattle 2017 snap counts tell me more of the same story. For what its worth, Doug Pederson and Eagles defensive quality/assistant secondary coach Dino Vasso were on the Chiefs staff that selected Alexander.4 - Anything to know about Alexander off the field?Despite his struggles making a name on defense, Alexander showed good character during his time in Kansas City. Speaking with him as a reporter, Alexander was always respectful.SEAHAWKS PERSPECTIVE(Answers by Alistair Corp and Mookie Alexander [no relation], respectively)5 - What can you tell me about Alexander’s Seahawks career?The Seahawks traded for him for his value on special teams. He was coming off a Pro Bowl season on ST; when they acquired him, Pete Carroll called him ‘a ridiculous special teams player.’ Brock Coyle had left in FA, and he was a big part of that unit. Since Bobby Wagner was drafted in 2012, the backup MLB has been a key teamer, first with Heath Farewell, and Brock Coyle after him. They signed Terence Garvin, another good special teamer, in FA, but he was an OLB. Alexander figured to be the next in that line of reserve MLB/ST.We really only saw him on special teams Womens Brandon Brooks Jersey , I think he played less than 20 snaps on defense all year. Not that ‘backers generally stand out on coverage units, since they’re kind of restricted to the middle of the field and don’t make the flashy plays, but we didn’t see enough to give specific strengths or weaknesses. At the risk of repeating the same thing over and over, his strength really is special teams. He’ll play on every unit and be reliable, he isn’t going to abandon his lane or cheat inside/out.6 - As an expert on Alexanders, what should I know about this one?DJ Alexander’s Seahawks career wasn’t memorable in any way. Seattle traded for him (sending Kevin Pierre-Louis to the Chiefs) for linebacker depth and to help with Special Teams. At the time of the trade he was a year removed from being a Special Teams Pro Bowler. Really his strengths are supposed to be tackling abilities in kick and punt coverage, and he also had a punt block last year against the Giants. Can’t really comment on his weaknesses seeing as he only had 20 defensive snaps last year, so his actual abilities at linebacker are a complete unknown to me. The Eagles are known for great ST, so Alexander should be a good fit there if he’s brought over specifically for that. (Click here to watch Alexander block a punt against the Raiders in 2016.)
