The Eagles are all the talk in the NFL right now, thanks to their undefeated season. Now, we’re at the midway point of the season, and many NFL critics are making their Super Bowl predictions.
Bo Wulf of The Athletic has some great things to say about the Eagles. He also has some bold predictions.
Wulf believes Jalen Hurts will set the franchise record for total touchdowns in a season. “Hurts has 12 passing and six rushing touchdowns through the team’s first eight games,” he writes. “That puts him on pace to break the franchise record for total touchdowns in a season, as he follows a long line of dual-threat quarterbacks. Randall Cunningham’s 35 in 1990 (30 passing, five rushing) is the mark to beat. Hurts has an extra game on the schedule in his favor, but let’s go ahead and say he gets it done in Week 17 before the team’s starters potentially rest in Week 18.”
Wult also sees the Eagles in the Super Bowl. “Buoyed by the bye and two weeks of home-field advantage, Hurts and the Eagles complete their season-long dominance of the conference and return to the scene of their Week 5 victory over the Arizona Cardinals,” he says. “As for who they’ll play and the result of that game, well, that’ll cost extra.” Fingers crossed that Wult is right!
