The Eagles will look to build on a strong campaign from a season ago. Philadelphia was able to sneak into a wild card spot, which exceeded most people’s expectations of them. The Eagles went into the offseason with a goal to build on that success. Philadelphia will look to take the next step as they eye the NFC East division title this season.
Philadelphia is in the top half of the league in Super Bowl odds, but do not crack the top 10 in any places. The Eagles are competing in a solid NFC East division. The Dallas Cowboys won the division a season ago, while the Washington Football Team, now the Commanders, finished just out of the race. The New York Giants struggled last season, but will look to bounce back after a big draft.
The Eagles had some big offseason additions to help bolster their roster. Philadelphia added wide receiver A.J. Brown, and linebackers Hasson Reddick and Kyzir White. The Eagles also drafted defensive tackle Jordan Davis, center Cam Jurgens and linebacker Nakobe Dean in the first three rounds. Philadelphia will look for these players to jump right into the mix.

2021-22 Eagles season review
Philadelphia finished last season with a record of 9-8, which was good enough for them to finish second in the NFC East and in the final wild card spot. The Eagles met up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card round, but lost 31-15. Jalen Hurts started 15 games, leading Philadelphia with an 8-7 record.
The Eagles went 3-3 against divisional opponents throughout last season, sweeping Washington and getting swept by the Cowboys. Philadelphia won four of their last five games to secure a playoff spot. The Eagles outscored opposing teams 444-385 during the season. Philadelphia will look to build on that successful finish early.
The Eagles will have Jalen Hurts lead them at quarterback after a strong showing last season. Hurts threw for 3144 yards, 16 touchdowns and 9 interceptions last season. He also rushed for 784 yards and 10 touchdowns. Hurts will need to become a bigger threat through the air though if Philadelphia wants to take the next step.
Philadelphia did a great job adding to the receiving core this season to help out Hurts. The Eagles now have DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown at receiver with Dallas Goedert at tight end. Smith had 916 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns in his rookie season, while Brown had 869 yards with the Tennessee Titans.
The Eagles have Miles Sanders as their starting running back to add to the rushing attack with Hurts. Sanders ran for 754 yards, but zero touchdowns last season. Philadelphia also has Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott in their backfield. The Eagles also have a great O-Line led by Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson.
The Philadelphia Eagles have a great defense
Philadelphia did a great job adding to their defense in the offseason. The Eagles added Nakobe Dean and Jordan Davis in the draft, both players have high ceilings in this league. They will join a front seven with Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox, Kyzir White and Hasson Reddick. Philadelphia has the potential to have the best front seven in the league this season.
The Eagles added to their secondary as well in the offseason to help this defense become more dominant. Philadelphia now has a cornerback duo of Darius Slay and James Bradberry. Bradberry has had his share of struggles in the top cornerback slot, but should be great in a more secondary role. The Eagles have Anthony Harris and Marcus Epps back at Safety.
Philadelphia’s defense was solid last season and only got better. The Eagles gave up 5590 yards against, which was 10th in the NFL. Philadelphia’s secondary was 11th yards against, while their rushing defense was 9th. The Eagles will look for this defense to improve even more going into this season.
Buy big on Eagles’ improvement
Philadelphia is looking for a strong start after making the postseason a year ago. The Eagles went in this offseason to add offensive support for Hurts and to strengthen an already top 10 defense. If Philadelphia can have an improved passing attack, I believe this team will be a serious threat in the NFC.
The Eagles have a relatively easy first half of their schedule as they face the Lions, Jaguars and Commanders all before their Week 7 bye. Philadelphia then plays the Steelers, Texans, Giants twice, Bears and Saints after their bye week. If the Eagles can pick up where they left off, they could finish with a very favorable record.
The sportsbooks all have Philadelphia listed as the second best odds to win the division entering the season. While Dallas was able to win the NFC East last season, I have not been a fan of their offseason. The Cowboys have let a lot of key players go, while the Eagles have a nice mix of youth and veterans. I think Philadelphia could steal the division this season.
