NFL Network predicts outcome of every Eagles game in 2023

Philadelphia is coming off a 14-win season, the best regular finish in franchise history, and a 38-35 loss to the Chiefs in the Super Bowl.

All was not lost, as the Birds retooled in the draft, landing Jalen Carter and Nolan Smith with their two first-round picks.

They then swung a draft night trade for Lions running back D’Andre Swift after signing Rashaad Penny in free agency.

Even with all the personnel and coaching staff changes, there are high expectations for Philadelphia heading into 2023.

The Eagles’ schedule is the NFL’s most challenging slate of games, and the experts are predicting a drop-off thanks to a brutal seven-week stretch starting before the bye.

We shared our way-too-early game-by-game predictions back in May, and now, NFL Network’s Adam Rank is doing the same.

Here’s a look at how Rank sees each game shaking out for the Eagles in 2023, which includes a surprising record.
