The Philadelphia Eagles are a dangerous team in Madden NFL 16. Although they don’t have a great quarterback or dominant wide receivers, they have plenty of weapons. When used correctly, they will be really difficult to stop.
Here is the full Eagles team breakdown for Madden 16.
Team: Philadelphia Eagles
Offensive Strategy: Run the ball consistently. Demarco Murray is an elite Madden running back. Once the defense starts keying in on the run, you should start getting the ball to your tight ends and young receivers. Depending on his rating, you may want to sub in Tim Tebow every now and then to make your running game even more effective.
Defensive Strategy: 3-4 defense with a good mix of pressure and coverage. The Eagles have 2 middle linebackers that will make a big impact in Kiko Alonso and Mychal Kendricks. Fletcher Cox can create some pressure while CB Byron Maxwell can shut down some of those tall receivers that are always so effective in Madden.
Impact Players: QB Sam Bradford, QB Tim Tebow, HB Demarco Murray, HB Darren Sproles, TE Brent Celek, TE Zach Ertz, LT Jason Peters, RT Lane Johnson, RE Fletcher Cox, MLB Kiko Alonso, MLB Mychal Kendricks, CB Byron Maxwell, FS Malcolm Jenkins
Key Newcomers: QB Sam Bradford, QB Tim Tebow, HB Demarco Murray, HB Ryan Matthews, WR Nelson Agholor, MLB Kiko Alonso, CB Byron Maxwell
Strengths: The running game and middle linebackers. The Eagles have 3 good running backs. Ryan Matthews and Darren Sproles are good role players while Demarco Murray is a top 5 Madden 16 running back. The Eagles also have 2 middle linebackers who should be able to disrupt anything over the middle.
Weaknesses: Quarterback. Sam Bradford is a servicable Madden quarterback but he is not nearly good enough to carry the team. Tim Tebow can be a good alternative because of his running ability but you will sacrifice passing accuracy.
Overview: Chip Kelly seemed to dismantle the entire Eagles team this offseason but when you look at their roster in Madden NFL 16, the team actually looks really competitive.
