The Philadelphia Eagles underperformed in 2019, but their 9-7 finish was still good enough to grab the division title in a weak NFC East. While it can be argued that every team in the division made improvements this offseason, including Philadelphia, the Eagles will have one distinct advantage this year that is probably flying under the radar.
The Eagles will not have to face a single opponent that is coming off a bye week in 2020.
This might not seem like too big a deal, but it can actually mean a lot. When a team is coming off a bye week, they have a handful of advantages, most notably extra time. Extra time to prepare, to heal their injured players and to get prepared mentally.
The Eagles avoiding that type of team in 2020 will only help their cause of bringing home another division championship and maybe much more.
