The 2019 campaign was a bit of a roller coaster ride for the Eagles and their faithful. There were lots of ups and downs along the way, but the team managed to close out strong. The result was a postseason berth for the third consecutive year.
After opening up the season with a come from behind victory over Washington, the team dropped two straight before bouncing back for a pair of wins. That pattern continued into the Week 10 bye, as the Eagles fell in two straight before winning two in a row.
Out of the break, the team hit the skids and dropped three straight games. At 5-7, it was looking like the playoffs were a real longshot. The team managed to put it together and win their final four games. The final record of 9-7 was good enough to take down the NFC East.
Philadelphia was paired up with the visiting Seattle Seahawks on Wild Card Weekend. Carson Wentz went down for the count early in the proceedings, and the Eagles couldn’t get much of anything going the rest of the way.
The Seahawks advanced with a 17-9 win. It was a tough loss for an Eagles squad that had to rally just to make it to the playoffs. However, the abrupt end to the postseason dreams could serve as a building block for the coming season.
The 2020 NFL Draft was an interesting one for the Eagles. The team walked away with several intriguing prospects, but they also raised some eyebrows with the selection of a QB in round two. Here’s a look at the newest team members in the Philadelphia Eagles roster.
Over the past decade, the Eagles have done a solid job in the NFL Draft overall, but there have naturally been some misses along the way. Here’s a look back at all of the first-round draft picks over the past 10 seasons in Philadelphia.
When a team makes it to the postseason three years in a row, then it’s apparent that they have a strong core in place. Such has been the case for the Eagles, a team that has drafted well in recent times. That leads to optimism that the 2020 draft class will be strong, but time will tell.
While Carson Wentz seems to be locked in at starting QB, the Eagles drafted Jalen Hurts in round two. Could the pressure be on Wentz? We’ll have to wait and see on that. For now, let’s take a look back at all of the players who have started behind center for Philadelphia over the last two decades.
Doug Pederson led the Eagles to their first-ever Super Bowl title just a few seasons ago, so it’s safe to say he’s not going anywhere for awhile. He has proven to be the right fit to replace Andy Reid, who had quite the longest tenure as the head man in Philadelphia. If we look back at the last 10 head coaches in franchise history, continuity hasn’t always ruled the day.
The Eagles have been playing home games in the same place since 2003, but the team has had several different homes since coming into existence in 1933. The Baker Bowl was the first spot, while Veterans Stadium was the last before the current home digs. In between, the team played at three other stadiums in the area. Here are the details of the current home field.
When the Eagles play on Sunday afternoon, you can find the game in one of two main spots: CBS and FOX. The former generally handles AFC while it’s NFC on the latter, but there is a crossover for inter-conference matchups.
If it’s a prime time tilt, you can also easily find the game. FOX and NFL Network cover Thursday Night Football, NBC has Sunday Night Football, while Monday Night Football can be found on ESPN.
Each of the above networks can be found in a multitude of cable, satellite, and streaming packages. You should also be able to pick up a feed on the app of the respective networks, but know that valid login credentials from your provider will be required.
Yahoo also provides streams of select local and primetime games. DirecTV has the full Sunday Ticket package with all of the afternoon games, while NFL RedZone provides ongoing coverage throughout the day. Both of those options require a subscription.
For the Philadelphia Eagles games on broadcast networks, you can catch the action on the local affiliate in your area, all of which are listed below for your reference.
There are numerous options for your Eagles viewing pleasure, and the same holds if you’re looking to catch the audio feed of the game. Merrill Reese handles play-by-play with Mike Quick on color commentary. The flagship station is 94.1 WIP, but several other stations in the area pick up the broadcast.
You can also catch the Eagles games on TuneIn radio, which can be accessed both online and via mobile app.
The Eagles first came into existence in 1933. It took some time for things to get going, but the team began finding success in the mid-1940s. After losing the NFL Championship Game in 1947, the team went on to win back-to-back titles in 1948-49.
The team couldn’t match the success over the next decade, but the 1960 team did. Led by league MVP Norm Van Brocklin, the team defeated the Green Bay Packers to lay claim to their third NFL Championship.
That would be the last high note for quite some time. The team struck out on reaching the postseason for over a decade, but head coach Dick Vermeil helped to engineer a turnaround upon his hiring in 1976.
From 1978 through 1981, the team made it to the playoffs each season. They made it to Super Bowl XV following the 1980 season, falling to the Oakland Raiders by a score of 27-10. Vermeil stepped down after the 1982 campaign while citing burnout.
The team meandered along for the middle portion of the decade, but things started to look up towards the end of the 1980s. Head coach Buddy Ryan was in charge of a talented defense and an electrifying QB in Randall Cunningham, and the team would make it to the playoffs three straight years.
Philadelphia never quite got over the hump during this time. Rich Kotite took over after Ryan, followed by Ray Rhodes. While the team made the playoffs during both of those tenures, neither of the coaching choices proved to be a long-term fit.
Andy Reid took over in 1999 and stuck around until 2012. The team found success during his time and was a regular participant in the postseason, but winning the Super Bowl proved to be an elusive goal.
Chip Kelly got the first crack at replacing Reid, but he only managed to last two seasons. Doug Pederson has now been on the job for four years, and the team has found great success under his watch.
The Eagles have made it to the playoffs three years in a row and won it all with a thrilling victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII following the 2017 campaign. Here are some of the more notable facts and figures from the history of the Eagles.
Unfortunately, there’s just not a clear cut answer to the question at this time. Due to COVID-19, NFL games may be going off sans fans in the coming season, but there is hope that limited capacity will be feasible. If it’s possible, you can be sure that the Eagles would love to host fans this season, but it’s a wait and see what develops the situation for the time being.
Bert Bell was the initial owner of the Eagles, and the franchise changed hands a few times from inception into the 1960s. In 1969, Leonard Tose and his partners acquired the team for $16 million. They would hold the team until 1985 when Norman Braman acquired the team for a price north of $65 million. Braman made himself quite a score less than a decade later when he sold the team to Jeffrey Lurie for $185 million in 1994.
Lurie maintains control of the team to this day, and it has proven to be quite a wise investment. Based on the latest NFL franchise valuations from Forbes, the Eagles are now worth a whopping $3.05 billion. That places them at 10th on the list of 32 teams. The Dallas Cowboys hold down the top spot at $5.5 billion, while the Buffalo Bills are in 32nd with an estimated value of $1.9 billion.
The Eagles have reached the Super Bowl three times in franchise history, winning the Big Game just once. Here’s a look back at the results from all three contests.
Super Bowl XV – Oakland Raiders over Eagles, 27-10, Jan. 25, 1981
Super Bowl XXXIX – New England Patriots over Eagles, 24-21, Feb. 6, 2005
Super Bowl LII – Eagles over New England Patriots, 41-33, Feb. 4, 2018
In the pre-merger days, the Eagles took down what was known as the NFL Championship on three occasions: 1948, 1949, and 1960.
The Eagles have retired a total of nine-player numbers thus far. Here’s a look at franchise greats on the list, listed in order by jersey number.
5 – QB Donovan McNabb
15 – HB Steve Van Buren
20 – S Brian Dawkins
40 – CB Tom Brookshier
44 – RB/WR/TE Pete Retzlaff
60 – LB/C Chuck Bednarik
70 – OT Al Wistert
92 – DE Reggie White
99 – DT Jerome Brown
Currently at the top of the salary chart for the Eagles is DT Fletcher Cox. He earns a base salary of $11.2 million and carries a total salary cap hit of $23.8 million with bonuses and incentives factored in. WR Alshon Jeffery is in second with a base salary of $9.91 million, followed by RT Lane Johnson at $7.785 million.
