Skills Analysis Notes
Ertz is the only real difference maker but on a team full of solid, not spectacular, skill players they don't need many difference makers to be productive.

Like their offense I expect the defense to be a solid unit that makes some plays on occasion. I expect consistency from this unit, not a stifling presence.
