After a four-win season last year that saw the firing of Doug Pederson and departure of QB Carson Wentz, the Eagles were not favored to make the playoffs this season under first-year head coach Nick Sirianni. But emphasis on the ground game helped elevate the Eagles into the playoff conversation. Led by dual-threat QB Jalen Hurts under center, Philly finished the regular season leading the league in rushing yards per game with 159.7. Bolstered by a strong run game, the Eagles won six of their last eight games to close out the regular season and clinch their first playoff berth since 2019. The last time the Eagles played against Tom Brady in the playoffs, Philadelphia won Super Bowl LVII over Brady’s Patriots 41-33.
