Seahawks Vs. Eagles Position-By-Position Preview:


The Eagles always seem to do exotic things with their linebackers, no matter who their D-coordinator is or who the players are. Barwin, Cole, Mychael Kendricks, Brandon Graham and Casey Matthews are all extremely versatile and athletic linebackers. Barwin is second in the NFL in sacks with 12.5.

These are two of the best LB cores in the NFL.
