The Philadelphia Eagles finished the 2021 season with a 9-8 record, which was good for second place in the NFC East and a spot in the playoffs where they were ousted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wildcard game.
Philadelphia averaged 26.1 points per game last season, which was 12th in the league. They gave up 22.6 points per game, which was 18th.
In his first full season as a starter, Jalen Hurts completed 61.3 percent of his passes for 3,144 yards, 16 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He also led the team with 784 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns, while DeVonta Smith led the team with 916 receiving yards and five touchdowns.
The Eagles made a splash in the offseason, trading for A.J. Brown, who had 2,995 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns in three seasons with Tennessee, and will give them a legit top receiver to pair with Smith.
Their running game was very good last season, thanks in large part to Hurts. They will be hoping he doesn’t have to run the ball as much this season if Miles Sanders, who rushed for 754 yards in 12 games last season, can stay healthy.
Philadelphia Eagles Season Preview
The Eagles weren’t very good defensively last season and didn’t get a lot of pressure on opposing quarterbacks. They signed linebacker Haason Reddick and used three of their first four draft picks on defensive players, including former Georgia defensive tackle Jordan Davis, who they selected with the `13th pick in the draft. They are also hoping that Brandon Graham, who had 7.5 sacks before tearing his Achilles in 2020, returns to form this season.
Even though the Eagles improved their roster in the offseason, their defense is still a cause for concern, which is why oddsmakers aren’t very high on them and Super Bowl 2023 predictions currently have them at +3300 odds to win the Super Bowl.
