The??Philadelphia Eagles??are one of the favorites to win Against the 2020 Super Bowl.
FanDuel Sportsbook??has the Birds listed at +1500.?? DraftKings Sportsbook has them.
And OK. They’re at the top six, although they are not the favored by any means.
NFL betting apart, Eagles fans are well aware that winning this coveted title can take a long time to accomplish (excluding those three NFL championships prior to the Super Bowl was a thing). The group held the Lombardi Trophy??for the first time.
But they’ve experienced painful losses on the way. There are more than 600 of them in business history.
Rather than listing each one, we offer up the 10 worst losses in history.
This is, needless to say, a list that is subjective. Feel free to disagree or agree.
Philadelphia fans get a bad rap. Throwing snowballs at??Santa Claus has a little something to do with it. The group entered the last game of the 1968 season with a 2-11 record. So the lovers did not have much to get excited about.
However, the loss to the Minnesota Vikings??is not what folks are referring to decades afterwards. This is the match when Santa got pelted with snowballs through halftime. There’s even a spoof of ESPN’s 30 for 30??about it.
The weather becomes a factor in NFL games. It was surely the case with a??Dec. 31, 1988, playoff game at??Soldier Field. Rather than rain or snow,??heavy fog??blanketed the arena, making fans and those players impossible in the second half visibility.
To make matters worse, the Eagles trailed and just scored two points. The final score was 20-12, and some other tournament hopes faded away in the fog.
When the Eagles played the Cincinnati Bengals Recall? It’s hard to forget the last score of 13-13. And the AFC North squad entered the match. Yes, even upsets happen all of the time in football. But there was a problem that is bigger. It seems quarterback??Donovan McNabb??was not fully aware of the rules. Listen explain and try things.
The Eagles entered the 2018 season as the defending Super Bowl winners. And that name includes high expectations. Unfortunately, the group of last year didn’t live up to these high expectations.
They moved to New Orleans??for a Nov. 18 game against the Saints, however there is not any means of sugarcoating the outcome. The 48-7 reduction is currently part of??NFL history. Being the very first league champs to suffer a defeat that is 41-point is not something worth fretting about.
Believe it or not, the Saints game mentioned above isn’t the most weight reduction on this list. The??42-0 defeat??to the??Seattle Seahawks, however, is.
Being on??Monday Night Football made it worse. We’re currently talking about the Philadelphia franchise which was fresh off a Super Bowl appearance and had played in four straight NFC Championship games. The Dec. 5, 2005, loss dropped the Birds into 5-7 for this season.
The outcome spoiled what was supposed to be a really special night. Prior to the game, the organization hailed the No. 92 jersey of former defensive end??Reggie White.
This one takes us straight back to Dec. 1, 1985. The Birds were top the Minnesota Vikings??23-0 early. Quarterback??Ron Jaworski??(aka Jaws) had a blockbuster initial half with 204 passing yards and two touchdowns. Fans chalk this one up from the win column. This was before the Vikings went on to win the game and scored 28 points. To make things worse, it had been played in the Vet.
The Eagles headed to the Super Bowl for the very first time in business history. They finished the??1980??regular season with a 12-4 record. It happened to be the same year that the Philadelphia Phillies??won their first??World Series??in franchise history.
The Eagles great run comprised a 10-7 victory over the??Oakland Raiders. But when Super Bowl XV gathered around two months later, the Black and Silver seemed like a completely different team. It revealed in the 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 match,??Dec. 30, 2012, against the??New York Giants, but was not so unforgettable. His team lost 42-7??to finish fourth in the NFC East with a 4-12 record. Call it a gloomy, sad ending into a loaf that has been emphasized by five trips to the NFC Championship game and yet another Super Bowl appearance (see No. 1).
It looked like the stars were aligned in 2002. The concluding soccer event in Veterans Stadium background couldn’t have been any larger. The Eagles hosted the Tampa Bay Bucs at the conference championship match. Plus the home team was preferred by the chilly temps. What could go wrong?
Nearly everything, as ultimate Super Bowl champs and the visitors won easily, 27-10. Today Along with fans are haunted by also the Ronde Barber interception return for a touchdown with.
After the 2004 season came around, it seemed as though the time had arrived. The franchise still sought its first Super Bowl title. The McNabb??and Terrell Owens??mix best. The team finished the regular season 13-3. Combined that with a strong defense, and most of the bits appeared to be perfectly calibrated to win Super Bowl XXXIX in Jacksonville, Fla..
Well, Tom Brady??and the??Patriots, who had been favored by seven, had other plans. Even the Birds ended up beating against the spread, but again fell short of this golden decoration, 24-21.
