The Philadelphia Eagles compete in the NFC East division of the National Football League (NFL) from their home at Lincoln Financial Field in Pennsylvania. The Eagles were established in 1933 and instantly created an epic rivalry with New York Giants, one that is considered the fiercest in all of the NFL, so watch for those exciting and explosive fixtures. Supporters of the Eagles are among the most loyal in NFL.
They regularly rank in the top three in attendance, and have sold out every game since the 1999 season, and a poll of NFL players ranked the Eagles’ fans as the most intimidating in the league.
Those fans are loyal despite a lack of success from their team. Although the Eagle won three NFL Championships before 1970, they are yet to win a Super Bowl ring. They came close in 1980 when they were losing finalists to the Raiders, and again in 2004 when they fell to the Patriots.
2010 saw the Eagle win the NFC East, an achievement they managed again in 2013, before back-to-back second place finishes followed.
2015 went 7-9 for the Eagles, a record that pundits think will be matched in 2016, although the bookmakers price them as fourth favorites, at +400, to win the NFC East so they expect the Eagles to finish bottom of NFC East.
Fletcher Cox, a defensive tackle, is one of the Eagles’ star assets and needs to put in a great season if the Eagle are to challenge during this coming campaign.
Cox is rated as one of the top 10 players in NFC East having recorded 9.5 sacks and 50 tackles from the 3-4 defensive end position, but this year the Eagles are playing 4-3 so he will be one to watch.

How To Make Money Betting On Philadelphia Eagles
You can find preseason odds of +400 for the Eagles to win NFC East, which prices them as fourth favorites. Bookmakers are nervous about the new head coach coming in, a switch to 4-3 defense, and a new offensive scheme being too many changes at one.
Defense needs to improve because the Eagles ranked 14th from 16 in the NFC last season, allowing 401.6 yards per game, and shipping 26.9 points per game. Fletcher Cox should help improve these figures in the coming season.
The Eagles offense ranked eighth from 16 NFC teams in 2015, averaging 364.4 yards per game, and scoring 23.6 points per game. Their rushing game averaged 108.9 yards per game while passing was 255.4 yards per game.
Quarterback Sam Bradford played 14 games in his debut season for the Eagle, throwing 19 touchdowns, 3,725 yards for an 86.4 rating. Chase Daniel, signed in March 2016, will be a solid understudy to Bradord should he need resting or gets injured.
