The Kool-Aid is being chugged in a big time way in the City of Brotherly Love after the Philadelphia Eagles won the franchise’s first Super Bowl ever in memorable fashion last season. How could you not love a good underdog story? Doug Pederson’s crew pulled the feat after going off the betting board dogged in every game leading up to their Super Bowl LII victory.
It won’t be the same story this time around, as this team has a big fat bullseye on its back entering the regular season, and is favored to win a division that saw the other three entrants grossly fail to live up to expectations a short season ago. On top of that, is Carson Wentz fully healthy? Will the defense be as hungry as it was last season? Are the fat and happy defending champs done reading their headlines?
No team has won the Super Bowl in back-to-back seasons since the New England Patriots pulled the feat in the 2004 and 2005 seasons. Are you ready to anoint the Eagles a dynasty like the Pats have been since the turn of the century? If your answer to that question is yes, I’ll personally book your action the entirety of the 2018 regular season!
Philly enters 2018 without a few coordinators on the offensive side of the ball, and that’s a major concern regardless of the fact that Pederson mostly called the offensive plays. The defense looks to be in good shape with Jim Schwartz back again to call the shots a year removed from overlooking the best run stuffing unit the NFL had to offer. He also gets Michael Bennett added to the mix, but it remains to be seen what that head case still has left to bring to the table.
Save for the New England Patriots, the Eagles have the second highest season win total ( 10.5 ) along with the Pittsburgh Steelers. As you’d expect, the upcoming schedule for the defending champs is tough as nails. Along with the NFC East, the Eagles will be running up against the AFC South and NFC South. Their two extra games are against the Vikings at home in a prime Week 5 grudge match, and the Rams on the road in Week 15. Not easy. Not at all!
Even with the question marks in the coaching ranks on the offensive side of the ball and the schedule being a bear, the Eagles are +705 to win Super Bowl LII, the +367 odds on favorites to win the NFC and the decisive -155 chalk to win the division. Whether you think the team repeats or not, the city of Philadelphia will once again be privy to another season of competitive football.
