The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional American football team in the National Football League (NFL). Founded in 1933, the team is one of the oldest in NFL history. The Eagles had a lot of early success as a franchise winning three championships before the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. However, despite winning their division 10 times, their conference twice, and appearing in the playoffs 22 times, the Eagles did not win their first Super Bowl until 2017 when they upset the heavily favored New England Patriots. The Eagles famously ran the “Philly Special” in their Super Bowl victory.
The team has played its home games at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania since 2003. The Eagles are known for having one of the rowdiest fanbases in the NFL, and Lincoln Financial Field is considered to be one of the toughest places for opposing teams to play. The fans are famous for even throwing snowballs at Santa Claus during a game near Christmastime. In their history, the team has had 10 players and coaches inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. Headlining their Hall of Famers are Reggie White, Steve Van Buren, and Norm Van Brocklin.
