Philadelphia Eagles: 3 Reasons They’ll Repeat as Super Bowl Champs

James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles won their first championship of the Super Bowl era in 2017. The City of Brotherly Love would love nothing more than to repeat. Will they have what it takes to win another? Or will the hangover last all year?

The city of Philadelphia is probably still celebrating. And who can blame them? It was a magical year for a team who had yet to win a Super Bowl.

After finishing the 2017 regular season 13-3 and defeating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, the Eagles are looking to become the first team to repeat since the 2004 Patriots. All the while, there is still some doubt as to who will be the starting quarterback come week one when they face the Atlanta Falcons on Sep. 6 in the NFL opener.

Despite the uncertainty, head coach Doug Pederson has his squad ready. They know every week, whomever they face, they will bring their best. They, for the first time, will be the Super Bowl champs everyone will look to beat.

“Everyone’s coming for us, and it’s great,” safety Rodney McLeod said. “It’s going to run through us. It’s going to run through Philadelphia.”

Optimism is high in Philly — and rightfully so. There’s a great chance that they will have an opportunity to repeat.

We will take a look at three reasons why that’ll help them along the way.
