The Philadelphia Eagles march to the beat of their own drum.
They’re a tough team that won’t back down or be bullied, and while their offense hasn’t been as efficient as it was last season, they’re pretty hard to stop in the open field.
With that in mind, Mike Greenberg stated that Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown are the most physical QB and WR, respectively, in the league, which obviously helps them a lot in that regard (via Get Up).
"[The Eagles] have the most physical quarterback in the NFL by far. They have the most physical wide receiver in the NFL. A.J. Brown has emerged … this season he has really emerged as one of the NFL's truly elite players."

The Eagles were in desperate need of a big win after getting their first loss of the season, and they didn’t disappoint in the slightest.
Taking down a team like the Miami Dolphins helped them make a statement after their offense got exposed by the New York Jets last week.
Hurts didn’t hesitate to put his body on the line to get those difficult yards, scrambling 11 times for 21 yards and one touchdown.
And even though he was sacked three times and he isn’t the biggest QB in the game, he’s quite difficult to knock on the ground because of his strong legs.
As for Brown, he manhandled the Dolphins secondary from start to finish.
The former Tennessee Titans star hauled in 10 of his game-high 15 targets for a whopping 137 yards and one score, including a 42-yarder.
Some believe this Eagles team isn’t as good as it was last season, but with these kinds of weapons and the way they’ve been bullying the opposition, it’s hard to choose any other NFC side against them right now.NEXT: Analyst Says 1 WR Belongs Among NFL's Elite
