The Philadelphia Eagles are an American football team headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Philadelphia Eagles are a member of the National Football Conference East division of the National Football League. At Lincoln Financial Field, the team plays its home games.
When a syndicate led by Bert Bell obtained the rights to an NFL club in Philadelphia, the franchise was founded in 1933 as a substitute for the insolvent Frankford Yellow Jackets. The Eagles have made the playoffs 27 times since its inception, winning 14 division titles (11 in the NFC East), and appearing in four pre-merger NFL Championship Games, three of which they won.
The Eagles picked DeVonta Smith, the Heisman Trophy winner, with the 10th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and then manipulated their way through the draft to obtain an extra first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Smith was a highly regarded prospect out of Alabama, and he became the Eagles’ first Heisman Trophy winner in more than fifty years. Smith was also reunited with Jalen Hurts, his first quarterback at Alabama, as a result of his selection.
All Time Record
The Eagles had a 586-608-26 regular-season record and a 23–23 postseason record. The Eagles are the eighth-oldest franchise in NFL history, having played 87 seasons.
