2. Philadelphia Eagles

Speaking of the Cowboys, it's their division rival, the Philadelphia Eagles, who are possibly the biggest threat to Seattle in the NFC. Last year's NFC Champions, the Eagles, are led by newly-paid quarterback Jalen Hurts who is coming off a breakout season and looks like one of the best players at his position in all of football.

Hurts isn't just a top-tier dual-threat quarterback, he's also a leader and winner. It's in his DNA. He's incredibly tough to defend for many reasons, but he simply has "it." Like all of the other greats, Hurts has that rare quality.

It also helps that he's got weapons like A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith at his disposal on the outside, plus tight end Dallas Goedert and a deep running back room.

We haven't even talked about Philly's defense, which completely reloaded this offseason. The rich definitely got richer, with Philadelphia adding tons of talent in the draft, namely a few more Georgia defenders. It doesn't seem fair, but the rest of the league allows it to happen and Philly is simply in position to put these types of players on an already-loaded defense.
