The most impressive team and individuals records broken this season by the Philadelphia Eagles, including some you may not have known about.
They’ve done it. The Eagles have made it to the Super Bowl.
Just five years after the last Super Bowl appearance, which resulted in the first and only Super Bowl ring for the franchise, Philly are ready to do it all over again. The Kansas City Chiefs stand in the way of glory for a second time in franchise history.
However, this time it’s slightly different. Not only have the Eagles stormed their way to Super Bowl 57 in Arizona, but they have smashed several incredible records along the way. And we’re here to reveal some of the most outstanding and impressive pieces of history made by Philadelphia on their journey to the Big Game.
Records Broken by the Eagles in the 2022/2023 Season
Here we go – the 7 team and individual records broken by the Eagles this season that just might shock and impress you!
1. Best Record in NFL History vs. Winning Teams (9-1)
This one should be addressed first given the “easy” schedule that many have described when reviewing Philadelphia’s fixtures. It has been anything but easy.
Philly play in the NFC East alongside the Cowboys, Giants and commanders. This happens to be the only division in the NFL in which every team finished .500 and above. Not so “easy”, is it?
Further, the Eagles have gone 9-1 against winning teams this season. This record has only been matched previously by the Vikings in 1969 and the Patriots in 2007. Not bad company at all.
2. Most Players with Dougle-Digit Sacks in One NFL Season (4)
In Week 17 against New Orleans, Brandon Graham reached a career milestone of 10 sacks. This individual record of Graham’s also resulted in a broken league record or most players to have double-digit sacks in one season (4). Those players were:
- Haason Reddick – 16
- Josh Sweat – 11
- Javon Hargrave – 11
- Brandon Graham – 11
Another one for the record books, Eagles fans.
3. First Team to Score 30+ Points & Allow Fewer than 10 in Consecutive Postseason Games
The broken records aren’t just limited to the regular season as far as the Eagles are concerned. They defeated the Giants 38-7 in their Divisional Round game and followed this up with a 31-7 NFC Championship victory against San Francisco.
No other team has managed this incredible feat. The confidence that this brings to the Eagles camp heading into the Super Bowl cannot be underestimated.
4. Most Regular Season Wins in Eagles Franchise History (14-3)
Philadelphia’s 14-3 regular season win record topped the 2004 and 2017 seasons. In those years, the Eagles recorded 13 regular season wins.
And, believe it or not, it could’ve been more than 14 wins! The loss of Jalen Hurts to a shoulder injury meant that he missed the last three games of the season. The absence of the MVP contender likely contributed to the Eagles losing two of their final three regular season matchups.

Still, 14 wins is an incredible feat and may not ever be beaten in Philly.
5. Most Regular Season Receiving Yards by an Eagles Wide Receiver (1,496)
When A.J. Brown joined the Eagles this season from the Titans, did he really think he would be one game away from his first ever Super Bowl ring in February 2023?
Probably not. But what this guy has is confidence, and it’s served him well this season. In Week 18, he broke the Eagles record for most receiving yards by a WR. He ended the 2022 regular season with 1,496 yards. This broke Mike Quick’s previous record of 1,409 yards back in the 1983 season.
6. Most Regular Season Receptions by an Eagles Wide Receiver (95)
Brown’s teammate DeVonta Smith also set a record for the most receptions in a single season by a wide receiver.
Smith recorded 95 receptions by Week 18, surpassing Irving Fryar’s 88 back in 1996. Believe it or not, A.J. Brown also matched Fryar’s receptions statistic this season.
7. Haason Reddick’s Record that You Definitely Didn’t Know About!
Yes, we’re back to Haason Reddick the sack superstar. Here’s one you definitely haven’t heard yet.
Reddick is the first player in NFL history to have double-digit sacks, three seasons in a row, for three different teams. He achieved this feat at the Arizona Cardinals, Carolina Panthers and, now, the Philadelphia Eagles.
More Eagles Records to be Broken?
The record-breaking doesn’t end there. All Eagles players will have the opportunity to add to their individual and team accolades on February 12 when they battle it out against the Chiefs.
Ultimately, it’s the Super Bowl that they want though. And they’re in with a shot, that’s for sure. In fact, the Eagles are currently 1.5-point favorites at the online sportsbooks.
