Several vital Philadelphia Eagles have returned in 2023 which means a few franchise records could be broken this upcoming season.
The 2023 NFL Season is less than three months away, and while summer can be a slow crawl to the starting line for many football fans, it also gives us time to prepare for the upcoming season. The Philadelphia Eagles have managed to retain most of their star players while adding in a healthy amount of fresh talent, and looking at this star-studded roster got us thinking that a few franchise records could be broken during the 2023 NFL season.
Under head coach Nick Sirianni, the Eagles have developed a trend of rewriting their team's history and record books. In 2022, Philly set new franchise team records. Two of the more commonly mentioned were team wins in a season (14 wins) and total team sacks (70).
Wide receiver A.J. Brown also set a new franchise record by notching 1,496 receiving yards. In 2021, the Eagles set a new single-season high in team rushing yards, earning 2,715 big ones from the ground game.
Aside from owning the phenomenal coaching and chemistry needed to find success, Philadelphia has also seen great individual performances. Quarterback Jalen Hurts will undoubtedly have a chip on his shoulder following a heartbreaking loss in Super Bowl LVII, but nothing should be taken from what he accomplished. He finished second in MVP voting despite being sidelined for two games with a sprained AC Joint in his throwing shoulder.
The Eagles are aging in some areas. They currently have eight players on their roster who are 30 years of age or older, and some of whom could be on the verge of breaking franchise records. The goal is clear. Philly wants to defend their spot as the reigning NFC champions successfully. It should be fun. We may even see history re-written again during the process. Here are a few records that are on the verge of falling.
