Hopefully, this fantastic ride the Eagles have taken us on will offer us a happy ending.
One of the best parts of every journey is the story that it produces. No one will ever forget where they were when the Philadelphia Eagles completed one of the best regular seasons in franchise history in 2017 before putting the capper on everything with a three-game winning streak that stretched from January 13th of 2018 until February 4th on the night that Super Bowl LII was played. It’s hard to imagine that almost five years have gone by.
Now, while no Eagles fan would have been less satisfied had Philadelphia beaten the Jacksonville Jaguars, toppling the New England Patriots, perhaps the greatest coach in NFL history (Bill Belichick), and the greatest quarterback of all time (Tom Brady) makes the story sound better. It just does. You have to admit that.
Are we destined to see phenomenal showings this time around? What kind of stories will be written during this run? No one knows the answer, but here’s what we can say. That won’t stop us from making a few educated guesses.
Here are a handful of bold predictions for the Eagles’ postseason run.
