The 2024 NFL season represents a fresh start for the Philadelphia Eagles. After an underwhelming finish to last season, the Eagles will be looking to bounce back and rejoin the contender conversation.

In order for that to happen, the Eagles will need stellar seasons from some key contributors. Stellar campaigns in the NFL are often recognized with some end-of-season hardware, so it's not a stretch to think that some members of the Bengals could be recognized by the league if the season goes well.

Here's a look at three Eagles who could win major NFL awards in 2024.

Nick Sirianni, Coach of the Year

Let's start at the top. It will be up to Nick Sirianni to maximize the talent on the team and lead the Eagles back to the top of the conference in 2024. If he's able to do that, there's no reason that he shouldn't be in the Coach of the Year conversation.

Sirianni is entering his fourth season as the head coach of the Eagles, and he's had some solid success so far. The team made the playoffs in each of his first three seasons, and he led them all the way to the Super Bowl in 2022. However, a late-season collapse last year had some people calling for his job. He kept it though, and 2024 will provide an opportunity for Sirianni to truly cement himself as one of the league's elite.

With an extremely talented offense and a revamped defense, there will be high expectations in Philly. If the Eagles can live up to them, perhaps Sirianni will end the season with some new hardware for his mantle.

Quinyon Mitchell, Defensive Rookie of the Year

The Eagles selected cornerback Quinyon Mitchell out of Toledo in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft, and the 22-year old could play a major role for Philadelphia right out of the gate. He could have an opportunity to win the starting job alongside Darius Slay in training camp, and even if he doesn't begin the season as a starter, the expectations is that he should still see some serious snaps. The Eagles needed a major upgrade at cornerback after last season, and if Mitchell can provide that, perhaps he'll get recognized with some hardware at the end of the season.

Jalen Hurts, MVP

We all know that Jalen Hurts had a relatively down season in 2023, but he's just two years removed from finishing second in MVP voting behind Patrick Mahomes in 2022. There's no reason to think that Hurts can't get back to that MVP level, especially with all of the upgrades that the Eagles made to the offense around him. If Philadelphia's offense is as good as it seems like it should be on paper, Hurts could put up some monster numbers, and if the Eagles are at the top of the standings again, perhaps Hurts will be crowned MVP after falling just short a couple years ago.
