Game-by-game predictions for the Eagles
The Eagles’ 2022 regular season NFL schedule was revealed in May and the team is set to improve on their 9-8 record from last season.
Philadelphia added Haason Reddick and Kyzir White during free agency, then on draft night traded six picks for the chance to draft Jordan Davis and acquire wide receiver AJ Browns from the Titans via trade.
The schedule is favorable despite the Eagles facing four playoff teams from 2021, three from the NFC, as well as the Titans, Cardinals, Cowboys and Packers in high-profile matchups.
Divisional opponents are set and Philadelphia will face the NFC North and AFC South as part of the game rotation.
Last offseason, we predicted a 10-7 result, and if Nick Sirianni hadn’t placed his starters in the season finale, we would have prevailed.
With a much-improved roster and star power on defense, we expect a 12-5 finish for the regular season.
