Eagles Eye Second Lombardi Trophy
The Eagles are among the one-hit wonders of the league, having lifted the Vince Lombardi Trophy only once in franchise history. The victory was a recent one, defeating the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl 52 on February 4, 2018.
It marks their third trip to the Big Game. Their first trip came at Super Bowl15 on Jan. 25, 1981, where they lost to the Oakland Raiders. In 2005, they made their second appearance, only to lose to the New England Patriots 24-21 in Super Bowl 39.
Philadelphia is making its second appearance in six years, but it’s a whole different team with second-year head coach Nick Sirianni at the helm and third-year starter Jalen Hurts as the offensive pivot.

Super Bowl 15: Raiders 27, Eagles 10
The Eagles waltzed onto the biggest stage in football for the first time over 40 years ago, but it was a disappointing experience as they came up on the wrong side of the 27-10 decision.
The Eagles went 12-4-0 on the season and navigated a course through the playoffs behind quarterback Ron Jaworski. They went into the Big Game as the three-point favorites, an NFL betting online outlook underscored by their solid defense, which was spearheaded by defensive end Claude Humphrey (14.5 sacks) and defensive back Bernard Wilson (six interceptions).
The Raiders, by contrast, were being led by Patriots cast-off Jim Plunkett after seeing their chosen starter Ken Stabler and then backup Dan Pastorini succumb to injuries. That said, the Raiders’ offense was deep and led by star wide receiver Cliff Branch (858 yards and seven touchdowns) and running back Mark van Eeghen (838 yards).
All told, the Raiders dominated the game from start to finish, taking a 14-3 lead at the half and extending it to 24-10 at the start of the fourth quarter. A 35-yard field goal and a defensive-heavy approach in the last 14 minutes iced the game.
Super Bowl 39: Patriots 24, Eagles 21
Philly’s second-ever Super Bowl appearance proved to be a close affair, decided by a handful of points in favor of the Tom Brady-inspired New England Patriots at Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla.
Brady and the Patriots, who finished the season with a 14-2-0 record, went into the game as the defending champions and they were bidding to become the first team to win back-to-back titles in the 21st century.
The Eagles, who went 13-3-0 on the season behind quarterback Donovan McNabb, were up for the challenge. They went toe-to-toe with the Patriots from the better part of the fourth quarters. For the first time in Super Bowl history, the game was tied at the end of the first quarter, second quarter and going into the fourth quarter as well.
At the start of the fourth quarter, the Patriots would pull ahead 21-14 thanks to a nine-play scoring drive. A few minutes later, the Patriots would add a field goal to move ahead 24-14 with 8:43 minutes remaining. McNabb led the Eagles on a touchdown drive to close the gap to 24-21 with 1:48 left in the game. However, on the Eagles’ last possession, his passing attempt was deflected into the hands of Rodney Harrison. Brady took a knee. Game over.
Super Bowl 52: Eagles 41, Patriots 33
For the second time in Philly’s history, they would come up against the Patriots in the Super Bowl. This time, however, the City of Brotherly Love would get the desired outcome in a thrilling shootout between journeyman quarterback Nick Foles and the GOAT, Brady.
The Eagles went into the playoffs as the significant underdogs, the quintessential longshots to advance deep into the postseason nevermind win Super Bowl LII. The reason for the discouraging outlook was the uncertainty at the quarterback position. Philly’s starter, Carson Wentz, went down with a season-ending injury in December. Journeyman Foles replaced Wentz and while he held his own down the stretch, he was still a wild card in the eyes of bookmakers.
Whatever the overriding opinion was, the Eagles didn’t get the memo or they simply didn’t buy into the negativity. Foles played the game of his life, going toe-to-toe with Brady as he outscored, outshot and outplayed the GOAT on the way to winning the Super Bowl MVP award.

In Super Bowl LII, he gave us one of the greatest plays in #NFL history: the Philly Special.

The record-setting Super Bowl shootout between Foles and Brady saw the backup finish 28 of 43 for 373 yards and three TDs. He also caught a touchdown pass as part of a ingenious designed trick-play called the “Philly, Philly,” but that became known as the “Philly Special” and that has since gone down in NFL folklore as one of the most ballsy offensive plays in the history of the game.
Foles led a nerve-biting, 75-yard drive for the winning touchdown, 11 yards to Zach Etrz with 2:21 to go.
Super Bowl 57: Eagles vs Chiefs
The Eagles are favored to win Super Bowl 57 according to the NFL odds powered by BetUS sportsbook. However, since opening as the -2½ favorites, the line has moved against them substantially. As things currently stand, they are pegged to -1.
There is still 10 days to kickoff and a lot can change before then. If the early NFL betting trends hold true, its possible to see the line flip entirely against the Eagles.
Will the Eagles shed the one-hit wonder moniker?
