On March 29, 1977, the NFL voted to increase the league regular season from 14 to 16 games, beginning in the 1978 campaign.


1. Hurts will shatter Eages record for Passing Yards in a season 4,039 (Carson Wentz 2019)

Carson Wentz broke Donovan McNabb’s single-season record during his historic 2019 run and also became the first Eagles quarterback in franchise history to pass for over 4,000 yards.


2. Josh Sweat records 16 sacks

One sack a game for a guy who’s gotten better every season shouldn’t be an impossible feat considering Fletcher Cox and Javon Hargrave will crush the pocket from inside out.


3. Gardner Minshew won’t start any games

Hurts has been relatively healthy his entire career dating back to Alabama, so it’s hard to see the second-year quarterback miss more than a half of game action. Hurts trains with Lane Johnson during the summer and his powerlifting background should protect him as a runner.


4. Miles Sanders breaks the Eagles’ single season rushing yards record 1,607 (LeSean McCoy 2013)

Sanders hasn’t rushed for 900 yards in a season during his two seasons in the NFL, but he’s explosive enough, and with added carries and focus on the running game, he could push McCoy’s 2013 record.


6. Rookie RB Kenneth Gainwell catches 70 balls

A talented rookie running back, Gainwell led the Eagles throughout the summer in targets during joint practice and game action.


8. Javon Hargrave logs 25 tackles for loss

T.J. Watt had the most tackles for loss in 2020, with 23 tackles and Javon Hargrave will come close to smashing that mark. A game-wrecking defensive tackle, Hargrave will spend 2021 collapsing pockets.


Bold Predictions for Eagles’ 2021 NFL Season

The Philadelphia Eagles entered the 2020 season expecting to be a playoff team. Instead, they went 4-11-1 and finished last in the NFC East. It was a disappointing showing that led to changes throughout the organization, including at the top of its coaching staff.


Reagor Ends Up as Eagles’ Leading Receiver

Right now, all eyes are on DeVonta Smith in the Eagles receiving corps. The former Alabama standout won the Heisman Trophy last year and was Philadelphia’s top pick in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft.


Eagles Lead the NFL in Sacks

There are some areas on the Eagles defense that could use improvement. Their pass rush does not appear to be one of them. It was a solid unit before, and it’s gotten even better this offseason.


Goedert and Ertz Both End Year Still on Team

One of the biggest storylines of Philadelphia’s offseason was whether it would trade Zach Ertz. For the longest time, it seemed like a sure thing that was going to happen, which would allow Dallas Goedert to take over as the clear No. 1 tight end on Philadelphia’s depth chart.


Prediction: Eagles 24, Falcons 17

San Francisco is healthy during this matchup and they’ll have the advantage of forcing Philadelphia to prepare for two different styles of quarterback. Jordan Mailata could have his hands full with Arik Armstead and the returning Joey Bosa. The retooling Eagles lose a tight one in their home opener.


Prediction: 49ers 21, Eagles 17

Philadelphia has lost three straight at Dallas, while Dak Prescott is back and slinging to the best trio of receivers in the NFL. The Eagles’ offense keeps the game close, but Philadelphia’s lack of talent at cornerback behind Darius Slay and Steven Nelson cost them dearly.


Prediction: Cowboys 35, Eagles 28

Kansas City is an NFL-best 44-20 (.688) on the road in eight years under Andy Reid and Philadelphia’s secondary could again get stretched thin by a deep Chiefs offense unit.


Prediction: Chiefs 24, Eagles 21

The Eagles need to get back on the winning track and the rebuilding Carolina Panthers present the perfect opportunity. The Birds defensive line gets to harass Sam Darnold all afternoon, translating into a much-needed road victory.


Prediction: Eagles 26, Panthers 14

Both teams will enter the contest on four days rest, with the Buccaneers having to get on a plane. Upsets aren’t unavoidable and the Buccaneers are not the 2007 New England Patriots.


Prediction: Eagles 23, Buccaneers 17

No organization travels like the Eagles, so a Week 7 matchup in Las Vegas will likely turn into a Philadelphia home game and pool party.


Prediction: Eagles 38, Raiders 24

It’s hard to win on the road and likely even more difficult after a trip to Las Vegas that turned into a party and a romp.


Who did the Eagles sign before last season?

The Eagles signed Darius Slay before last season to be a fixture at one corner, but he intercepted just one pass and allowed opposing QBs to complete throws 76.7 percent of the time. Avonte Maddox showed potential in 2019 with 10 passes defended in six starts.


How many tackles does Alex Singleton have?

He’ll play alongside another 2020 breakout linebacker: Alex Singleton led the Eagles with 120 tackles — 115 more than he had as a rookie in 2019 and 46 more than any other Bird last season. T.J. Edwards (70 tackles in 2020) has rotational value.


Who is the Alabama Heisman Trophy winner?

The primary source of hope is first-round draft pick DeVonta Smith, the Alabama Heisman Trophy winner and big-play machine. Though slight, Smith has the quickness and ability to get open. He will elevate the receiver room the moment he walks in the door.


Is Eric Wilson a star?

He isn’t a star, but he’s a solid fill -in. With Gannon on the scene, the team added former Viking Eric Wilson this spring on a one-year deal. The 2017 UDFA broke out in 2020 with 122 tackles and three interceptions after Minnesota Pro Bowler Anthony Barr went down with an early-season injury.


Week 1: at Atlanta Falcons

Week 1 will be all about finding a rhythm for the Eagles. Jalen Hurts took ten snaps during Philadelphia’s preseason games, so he may not be as ready as fans would have liked. The game will be close, but Atlanta’s Matt Ryan and first-round draft pick Kyle Pitts will challenge the Eagles’ defense.


Week 2: vs. San Francisco 49ers

Philadelphia’s home field advantage will make a huge difference in Week 2 during the Eagle’s 2021 debut at The Linc. San Francisco’s head coach Kyle Shanahan still hasn’t named a starting QB for the 49ers, but regardless I don’t think it will stop Philadelphia’s energy.


Week 3: at Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott is back and expected to make the season opener, which means (pending no injuries) he will be present when Philadelphia visits Dallas. This will be a tall task for Hurts and the remainder of the Philadelphia Eagles, who will still be trying to find their groove.


Week 4: vs. Kansas City Chiefs

This will be a cool game to watch (win or lose). Fans will not only get to see head coach Andy Reid again, but the Kelce brothers will go head-to-head, and Patrick Mahomes will play in Philadelphia for the first time. The Chiefs are favored to win the Super Bowl this year, so the Eagles should use this game as a learning experience.


Week 5: at Carolina Panthers

If Tony Romo needed an example to go with his statement, this is it. The Panthers won’t expect much from Philadelphia, which will give the Eagles an advantage. Sirianni will roll the tapes back from the last few weeks and make the changes necessary to put a win under their belt in Week 5.


Week 6: vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The returning Super Bowl champs are headed to Philadelphia. Tom Brady has gone 12-3 during Thursday Night Football, and the Buccaneers will give the Eagles a run for their money like the Chiefs did. The Eagles’ offense will be on their toes as they look to keep Jalen Hurts safe and sack-free.


Week 7: at Las Vegas Raiders

Philadelphia will have a week and a half of rest after taking on Tampa Bay when they visit the Raiders. ESPN has ranked the Raiders at 22 and the Eagles at 25 this season, making it a pretty even playing ground. Philadelphia will have a lot of opportunities to score here.


Philadelphia Eagles 2021 season preview

The Eagles’ schedule in 2021 is the tale of home versus away. Their home schedule is projected as one of the most difficult in the league. Conversely, their road schedule is expected to be one of the easiest in the NFL. They play each NFC East team twice, once at home and once on the road.


Philadelphia Eagles 2021 prediction

Philly’s roster is a bit in flux at the moment. The 2021 season really comes down to how well new head coach Nick Sirianni can adjust to the new job and develop Hurts. The Eagles also bring in new offensive and defensive coordinators for the 2021 season.
