The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional American football team that plays from the National Football Conference (NFC) East division. Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Eagles play its home games at Lincoln Financial Field in the South Philadelphia Sports Complex.

The Eagles are one of the most successful NFL teams, having won multiple NFL Championships, including Super Bowls. The Philadelphia Eagles were established in 1933, at a time when the NFL was growing rapidly in the United States.

The Eagles’ establishment was a direct result of the bankruptcy of the Frankford Yellow Jackets, Philadelphia’s original NFL franchise. They couldn’t perform well on the field in the first few years while they also struggled financially at the same time.

Championship Wins

The Eagles tasted their first league championship win in the 1948 season. The final match was played in a blizzard between the Eagles and the Chicago Cardinals at Shibe Park in Philadelphia. They beat the Cardinals 7-0 to claim their first championship.

The Eagles successfully defended their title in the 1949 season and became one of the few teams to win back-to-back NFL Championships. They again defeated the Cardinals 14-0 to claim their successive championship.

Their third title win before the Super Bowl Era came in the 1960 season when they defeated the Green Bay Packers 17-13 at Franklin Field in Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, their only NFL title win in the Super Bowl era came in the Super Bowl LII in 2018. They beat the New England Patriots at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
