The??Philadelphia Eagles??are among the favorites to win the 2020 Super Bowl.
FanDuel Sportsbook??gets the Birds.?? DraftKings Sportsbook has them at +1400.
And OK. They are not the favored by any means, but they’re in the top six.
NFL betting apart, Eagles fans are well aware that winning this coveted name can take a long time to accomplish (excluding these three NFL championships before the Super Bowl has been a thing). The team held the Lombardi Trophy??for the first time in 2018.
But they have experienced debilitating losses along the way. There are over 600 of them in business history.
Instead of listing each one, we offer the 10 worst declines in history up.
That is, needless to say, a subjective list. Feel free to agree or disagree.
Philadelphia fans get a bad rap. Throwing snowballs at??Santa Claus has a little something related to it. The team entered the last game of the 1968 season. So the fans did not have much to get excited about.
However, the loss to the Minnesota Vikings??is not what folks are talking about decades. This is actually the game after Santa got pelted with snowballs through halftime. There is even a spoof of ESPN’s 30.
The weather becomes a element in NFL games. It was certainly true with a??Dec. 31, 1988, playoff game at??Soldier Field. Instead of rain or snow,??heavy fog??blanketed the stadium, making visibility for those players and fans in the second half.
The Eagles trailed and scored nine points against the Chicago Bears, to make things worse. The final score was 20-12, and some championship hopes faded away from the sidewalk.
When the Eagles played with the Cincinnati Bengals on Nov. 16, 13, Recall? It is hard to overlook the score of 13-13. Along with the AFC North team entered the game. Yes, even upsets happen all the time in soccer. But a problem that is bigger was there. It seems quarterback??Donovan McNabb??was not alert to the overtime rules. Listen to him attempt to explain things after the game.
The Eagles entered the 2018 year as the defending Super Bowl champions. And that name comes with high expectations. Alas, the squad of a year failed to live up to those expectations.
They traveled to New Orleans??for a Nov. 18 game against the Saints, however there is not any means of sugarcoating the outcome. The reduction is part of??NFL history. Being the first league champs to undergo a defeat that is 41-point isn’t something worth bragging about.
Believe it or not, the Saints game is not the most weight reduction on this listing. The??42-0 conquer the??Seattle Seahawks, however, is.
Being on??Monday Night Football made it even easier. We’re referring to the Philadelphia franchise that was fresh off a Super Bowl appearance and had played four straight NFC Championship games. The Dec. 5, 2005, loss dropped the Birds into 5-7 for the season.
The outcome spoiled what was supposed to be a rather special night. Prior to the game, the organization retired the No. 92 jersey of former defensive end??Reggie White.
This one brings us back to Dec. 1, 1985. The Minnesota Vikings were being led by the Birds 23-0 early. Quarterback??Ron Jaworski??(aka Jaws) needed a blockbuster first half with 204 passing yards and 2 touchdowns. Fans were chalking up this one in the win column. This was before the Vikings scored 28 unanswered points and went on to win the match, 28-23. It was played in the Vet, to make things worse.
The Eagles headed into the Super Bowl. They ended the??1980 season with a 12-4 record. It happened to be the year that the Philadelphia Phillies??won their first??World Series.
The Eagles run that was great included a 10-7 victory over the??Oakland Raiders. But around two weeks later, when Super Bowl XV rolled, the Silver and Black looked like a team that was different. It showed in the final score, Raiders 27, Eagles 10.
Andy Reid (now the??Kansas City??Chiefs??head coach) is the winningest coach in Eagles history (130-93-1). His final game,??Dec. 30, 2012, against the??New York Giants, however,??was not so memorable. His team dropped 42-7??to finish in the NFC East. Call it a sad, sad end into a loaf that has been emphasized by five trips to the NFC Championship game and yet another Super Bowl appearance (see No. 1).
As though the stars were aligned in 2002, it looked. The final football occasion in Veterans Stadium history could not have been larger. The Eagles were hosting the Tampa Bay Bucs at the conference championship game. In addition to the home team was favored by the temps. What can go wrong?
Just about everything, as Super Bowl champs and the people won easily, 27-10. Today Along with fans are still haunted by the Ronde Barber interception return for a touchdown with.
After the 2004 season came about, it seemed as though the Eagles period had finally arrived. The franchise still sought its first Super Bowl title. The McNabb??and Terrell Owens??mix greatest. The team finished the regular season 13-3. Combined that having a solid defense, and each of the pieces appeared to be perfectly calibrated to win Super Bowl XXXIX in Jacksonville, Fla..
Well, Tom Brady??and the??Patriots, who were favored by Tom, had other plans. The Birds ended up beating against the spread, but fell short of their gold prize, 24-21.
