The Eagles easily possess the best tight end within the NFC East. Arguably, they may also have the best in the entire conference.

Ertz is coming off his third straight Pro Bowl nomination with five straight seasons of 70+ receptions and 800+ yards. He is one of the most consistent, reliable, and talented players at the position in the game.

Goedert, meanwhile, has improved in each of his two seasons in the league, giving Philadelphia the luxury of also having the best backup in the division. With Ertz and Goedert playing together, they have been able to cover for the injuries and lack of production from their receiving corps.

I would expect more of the same from the duo in 2020. That should translate into a bump in production from last year which would be impressive given that the two combined for almost 150 catches, over 1,500 yards, and 11 touchdowns.

With the offensive skill positions now accounted for within the NFC East, the leaderboard reads like this. The Dallas Cowboys still hold a commanding lead with 16 total points. Philadelphia is next with ten points, while the Giants are third with eight. Come back Tuesday for a review of the offensive line.
