Are Eagles still going to play ground-and-pound in 2022?

Nick Sirianni saved the Eagles’ season last year with a gutsy late-October decision to shake up his offense. After a 33-22 road loss to the Raiders dropped the Eagles to 2-5, Sirianni decided they were going to run the ball more. A lot more. In their first seven games, the Eagles had averaged 36.7 pass […]
