The Eagles have a chance of getting off to a quick start. This is a problem since they won the Super Bowl in 2017. Through seven games in each of the last four season, the Eagles’ best record is 3-4. They were 2-4-1 in former coach Doug Pederson’s final season and they were 2-5 in Nick Sirianni’s first, although they rallied to make the playoffs. Philadelphia’s first four games come against teams with losing records a year ago, and while their next two games are against 2021 playoff teams, they are winnable against Arizona and Dallas. The Eagles have a three game road swing in December. Even though two of those road games are against Chicago (6-11) and the Giants (4-13 in 2020), they will want to get off on a fast start.
There are many to choose from. A.J., a new wide receiver Brown saw his former team, Titans in December. Pederson’s return to Philadelphia with the Jaguars in October. Two games against former starting Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. It will be his first game back in Philadelphia since his trade to the Indianapolis Colts last year on Nov. 14. Will Eagles fans be kind to their former pick in the first round or will they make fun of him for not living upto the huge contract he signed in 2019. And given how Wentz has performed recently, will he even be the Commanders’ starting quarterback by that point of the season?
What the oddsmakers think
The oddsmakers have the Eagles’ win total at nine. Considering the strength of schedule based off last year’s win percentages and the fact they won nine games last season, it might be a little low, especially since the trade for Brown that should help quarterback Jalen Hurts in his second full-season as the starting quarterback.
The Saints (2023 first round pick belonged to Philly) won’t make it to the playoffs. Instead, the Eagles will have an Eagles 2023 first round pick within the top 16. This will give GM Howie Rosaman the chance to make major plays for a quarterback in the event that Hurts doesn’t get the job done.
