Offense: In 2017, the Philadelphia Eagles are poised to take a huge step forward behind second-year quarterback Carson Wentz. All things considered, Wentz had a successful rookie season in the NFL. Head coach and quarterback guru, Doug Pederson, is an exceptional quarterback developer and Carson Wentz looks every bit the part of a franchise quarterback. In 2017 the Eagles should be competitive in a talented NFC East division. This offseason, the Eagles added a number of offensive playmakers to surround Wentz. Wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith were signed to multi-year deals. Both possess big play-making ability well suited for Wentz' strong arm. The Eagles also signed running back LeGarrette Blount from the New England Patriots. The Eagles will be an exciting team to watch in 2017 as Carson Wentz is primed to make a big second year leap.
Defense: The Philadelphia Eagles defense will be exciting to watch in 2017 with the addition of two impact starters acquired via the 2017 NFL Draft. Edge rusher Derek Barnett and cornerback Sidney Jones look like immediate starters. Barnett will complement Brandon Graham as a second pass-rusher for this defense. The Eagles desperately needed pass-rushing help and Barnett should fill this void. The defense is built around standout DT Fletcher Cox. Cox led last year’s team in sacks and provides a strong presence against the run. Defensive Coordinator Jim Schwartz has a proven track record in the NFL - his second year at the helm of this defense should pay big dividends.
Schedule: In 2017-18 the Philadelphia Eagles play host to a strong home schedule. Home opponents include: Washington Redskins, New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys, Oakland Raiders, Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos, and the San Francisco 49ers.
Suites and Special Events: A Lincoln Financial Field suite offers unparalleled access and amenities for any client, employee, or family outing. Philadelphia Eagles luxury boxes generally include 20 tickets and 4 VIP parking passes. Suite guests have exclusive access to exclusive stadium clubs, a climate-controlled environment with retractable windows, and dedicated suite attendant services. In 2017, Lincoln Financial Field will also host a U2 concert, CONCAAF soccer games, and the storied Army v. Navy NCAAF game.
