The Kansas City Chiefs were established as 1-point favorites just minutes after the conclusion of their conference title clash with the Bengals, but early action forced NFL odds to adjust significantly. The Philadelphia Eagles are now -1.5 or -2 at most major sites. 

The total opened at 51 points, and action on the Under has caused the line to dip to 49.5 at most books.

Super Bowl XV: Raiders vs Eagles 

The Eagles were steeped in mediocrity for much of the early Super Bowl era, but head coach Dick Vermeil helped turn things around in the late 1970s. 

By 1980, Philadelphia was good enough to win the NFC East and crushed the Cowboys 20-7 to earn their first trip to the Super Bowl. They were 3-point favorites over the Oakland Raiders, who snuck into the playoffs as a Wild Card team in the AFC.

The Eagles were unable to overcome a terrible first quarter in which quarterback Ron Jaworski’s first pass was intercepted, leading to a touchdown on the Raiders’ opening drive.

Philly had a potential momentum-swinging touchdown called back on an illegal motion penalty, then proceeded to give up another first-quarter touchdown to Jim Plunkett & Co. 

The Raiders opened things up to a 24-3 lead before coasting in the fourth quarter to a 27-10 triumph. It would be over two decades before the Eagles found their way back to the Big Game.

Super Bowl XXXIX: Patriots vs Eagles

Andy Reid – who will be on the enemy sideline when the Eagles take the field in Super Bowl LVII – finally got Philly over the hump as head coach in 2005 after three straight losses in the NFC Championship Game.

They would face the New England Patriots, a team that no one realized at the time would turn into one of the most impressive dynasties in sports history. 

Terrell Owens was arguably the most impactful player on the Eagles’ roster that year, but the volatile wide-out suffered an ankle injury just weeks before the Super Bowl and missed both the Divisional Round and Conference Championship.

However, he would defy doctor’s orders and play with two screws and a metal plate in his injured ankle in Super Bowl XXXIX.

Owens recorded nine receptions and 122 yards, but it wouldn't be enough. Quarterback Donovan McNabb threw three interceptions in the game, including the game-deciding one to Rodney Harrison with 46 seconds left in the fourth quarter. 

Tom Brady completed 23 of 33 passes for 236 yards, with game MVP winner Deion Branch hauling in a Super Bowl-record 11 balls for 133 yards. 

Super Bowl LII: Eagles vs Patriots

Philly finally tasted victory in the Super Bowl in 2018, and it was extra sweet for Eagles fans as they got revenge on Brady and the Patriots.

The Eagles went 13-3 in the regular season with Carson Wentz at the helm most of the way, but he injured his ACL in Week 14, forcing Philly to turn to Nick Foles under center.

The Eagles snuck by the Atlanta Falcons 15-10 in the Divisional Round before pounding the Vikings 38-7 in the Conference Championship. Foles was instrumental in that latter victory, throwing for 352 yards and three touchdowns. 

That performance would be a harbinger of things to come in Super Bowl LII, a high-octane shootout that featured not a single punt. Philly would top AFC Champion New England, 41-33, in a game that also had one of the most celebrated plays in NFL history – the “Philly Special.” 

Foles won MVP by going 28-for-43 with 373 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, and that aforementioned receiving touchdown.

The Eagles ended a 57-year championship drought (dating back to their 1960 NFL Championship before the creation of the Super Bowl), the third-longest in the NFL's history.
