The Pre-Super Bowl era (1933-1965)
The 2023 NFL campaign marks Philly's 91st season of existence. Be that as it may, this is only the seventh time they have begun their regular-season march with an 8-1 record. Taking a look at the prior six instances leads us to a favorable conclusion. Big things might be in store for this season's iteration.
Philadelphia started the 1949 season at 8-1 and finished the season with an 11-1 record. The Eagles ultimately ended the year with their second consecutive NFL Championship thanks to a 14-0 shutout win over the Los Angeles Rams.
11 years after winning the second NFL Championship in franchise history, the Philadelphia Eagles won their third. They finished the regular-season march with a mark of 10-2 and beat Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers in their final game.
This was the only postseason game that Lombardi ever lost.
