The Philadelphia Eagles: A season in review

Jimmy McAllister

On January 16, Eagles fans were filled with playoff hopes after clinching the 7th seed in the NFC and making it to the top 14 NFL teams. However, over the course of 3 hours, that hope was obliterated in a brutal one-sided game, dominated by Tom Brady orchestrating the rest of the Buccaneers. Eagles fans were devastated watching their team hardly put up a fight in a 31-15 game.
The Eagles did not get any points until the fourth quarter, but at that moment there was no chance of a comeback.
Regardless of how it ended, the Philadelphia Eagles still managed to have a solid season with a winning record of 9-8 and a playoff appearance.
With a brand new coach and a semi-new quarterback, the Eagles exceeded the expectations for the season.
Despite starting off the season rough with a 1-3 record, they gradually gained ground and came back to clinch a wildcard spot with their 9-8 record.
Overall in the 2021-2022 season, the Philadelphia Eagles proved themselves as a top 14 team, scoring 444 total points (approx. 26.1 points per game), and only conceding 385 points (approx. 22.6 points per game).
As a team with a lot of new players, this season showed how strong the Eagles are and proved that they have the opportunity to be a threat in the next couple of years. This fact keeps fans hopeful for the future and enthusiastic for more shots at the Super Bowl.
