Predicting The Eagles’ Wins and Losses For The 2022 Season

The Philadelphia Eagles made some serious upgrades this offseason. Howie Roseman deserves a ton of credit as the Eagles seemingly had a successful NFL Draft and made some great free agent pickups. If these moves work out, the Eagles should be in for a very exciting season ahead.

Here is a detailed prediction of the Eagles’ wins and losses for the 2022 season: 

Week 1: September 11 At Detroit Lions 

  1. Win

The Eagles will be primed and ready for the season opener just like in 2021 when they beat Atlanta 32-6. Philadelphia also beat Detroit in 2021 by a score of 44-6. The Lions are an improved team going into this season. Detroit went 3-3 over the final two months of last year, retained most of their starters, and made two top-12 picks in this year’s draft. The Lions are still rebuilding, so the Eagles should be able to get a win here. 

Week 2: September 19 (MNF) Vs. Minnesota Vikings 

  1. Win

The Vikings were neck-and-neck with the Eagles last season for the final wildcard spot until the Eagles pulled away in December. Minnesota will enter the 2022 season with a new coach and general manager but retain Kirk Cousins at quarterback.

The Vikings mostly focused on improving their defense this offseason while the Eagles focused on both sides of the ball. This will be the Eagles’ home opener, so the home field advantage should help them out.               

Week 3: September 25 At Washington Commanders       

  1. Loss

The Eagles will get to face their old quarterback Carson Wentz. This could likely be Wentz’s last season to prove himself as a franchise quarterback. Wentz will be determined to beat his old team, so this game will likely come down to the wire. The Eagles swept Washington last season, but it will not be as easy this season.  

Week 4: October 2 Vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

  1. Win

This will be a special game for Eagles fans as Doug Pederson returns to Philadelphia as coach of the Jaguars. Pederson helped coach the Eagles to their first-ever Super Bowl win in 2017. The Jaguars added weapons to their offense to help second-year QB, Trevor Lawrence. Jacksonville is still early in their rebuild, so the Eagles should be able to handle this game. 

Week 5: October 9 At Arizona Cardinals 

  1. Loss

The Cardinals and coach Kliff Kingsbury are known for their hot starts, but cold finishes to their recent seasons. Last year Arizona started the season 7-0 but went 1-4 over the last five games.

This will be a difficult road trip for the Eagles as they have to travel back three time zones. The only advantage for the Eagles is that the Cardinals’ best receiver, Deandre Hopkins, will still be suspended for this game. He violated the performance-enhancing drug policy last year and will miss the first six games this season. Overall, this road trip will be a challenge for the young Eagles squad. 

Week 6: October 16 (SNF) Vs. Dallas Cowboys  

  1. Win

The Cowboys swept the Eagles last season and Philadelphia is just 2-7 in their past nine games against Dallas. The rivalry has become almost non-existent, but the Eagles will look to get their revenge. This will be a primetime showdown, so expect a lot of hype going into the game. Philadelphia has improved their team while Dallas lost several key starters from last year.                    

Week 7: BYE

The Eagles should go into their bye week with a respectable 4-2 record.

Week 8: October 30 Vs. Pittsburgh Steelers     

  1. Win

The home team typically has the advantage in the battle of the keystone state. The Eagles have not lost to the Steelers at home since 1965. The Eagles will have the bye week to prepare, so they should be able to win this one. The Steelers would likely be starting a rookie QB in Kenny Pickett who is originally from New Jersey.                                                  

Week 9: November 3 (TNF) At Houston Texans    

  1. Win

Houston went 4-13 last season, and they are not expected to be much better this season. The Texans traded away their star QB Deshaun Watson to Cleveland after having him sit last year out. It could be a few years before the Texans are competitive again, so the Eagles should be able to win this game.                        

Week 10: November 14 (MNF) Vs. Washington Commanders   

  1. Win

This will be another exciting game for Eagles fans with the return of Carson Wentz. Fans will not forget how Wentz gave up on the Eagles, so he will be in for quite a welcoming. Expect Wentz to feel the pressure and make a couple of mistakes. This will be in primetime on a Monday night, so expect plenty of storyline leading up to the game.

Week 11: November 20 At Indianapolis Colts 

  1. Lose

Philadelphia will be coming off an emotional Monday night game and then have the challenge of a Sunday road game in Indianapolis. This could be difficult for the Eagles and where they could face their first post-bye week loss.

The Eagles will get to face their former offensive coordinator Frank Reich who coaches Indianapolis and Nick Foles who could be the Colts’ backup quarterback.                                  

Week 12: November 27 (SNF) Vs. Green Bay Packers 

  1. Loss

The Green Bay Packers have been the best regular-season team in the NFC over the past three years. They come into 2022 with three straight 13-win seasons, so it is likely they continue this dominance. The Eagles hopefully will not let Green Bay blow them out, but they are not at the level of the Packers yet.                                              

Week 13: December 4 Vs. Tennessee Titans

  1. Win

The Eagles will have a big challenge against the Titans who have made the playoffs the last three seasons. Tennessee’s best player is running back Derrick Henry, but the Eagles’ defensive line is stout against the run. This game will likely be decided in the fourth quarter, but the Eagles have the advantage of playing at home.        

Week 14: December 11 At New York Giants 

  1. Win

The Giants are rebuilding and may not be competitive in the NFC East this season. QB Daniel Jones still has to prove himself as their quarterback or New York is going in a different direction going forward.

The Giants will have a new head coach and the team made some high-profile draft picks. The Eagles are the better team and should be able to pick up a road win here. 

Week 15: December 18 At Chicago Bears 

  1. Win

The Bears finished 2021 with a disappointing 6-11 record despite trading up for quarterback Justin Fields in the draft. Chicago has not given Fields the weapons to succeed. The Bears will have a new coach in 2022, but the team is still rebuilding. The Eagles should be able to take care of business in Chicago.

Week 16: December 24 At Dallas Cowboys

  1. Lose

The Cowboys could come into this game needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. It is a home game for Dallas and the Eagles have struggled at AT&T Stadium. Hopefully, the Eagles already have a two-game division lead by this point where a loss will not hurt them.      

Week 17: January 1 Vs. New Orleans Saints     

  1. Win

This will be the third straight season the Saints travel to Philadelphia for a late-season matchup. The Saints have not found an answer yet for Jalen Hurts, so expect that to continue. Hurts has had some of his best games against New Orleans. This game could be an opportunity for the Eagles to clinch a playoff spot. 

Week 18: January 8 Vs. New York Giants  

  1. Lose

The Eagles could go into the final week with an 11-5 record. This might be enough to clinch the division, but it depends on where Dallas finishes. If the Eagles have the division wrapped up or a playoff spot clinched, they could rest their starters. In that case, they will likely lose this one. If the Eagles need a win for playoff seeding, they should be able to beat the Giants at home.

In Conclusion

  1. Predicted Win-Loss Record: 11-6

The Eagles should be able to finish the season with a double-digit win total. The 11-6 record could be enough to win the NFC East or at least make a playoff spot. This would be an improvement over 2021’s 9-8 record.
