The Philadelphia Eagles won the NFC East at 9-7 before losing in the Wild Card Round of the 2019 NFL postseason.
FanDuel Sportsbook already has odds out for the 2020 NFL season, and they seem to be projecting the Eagles to be even better next year. Philly is tied for the sixth-best odds (+1900) to win Super Bowl 55.
The Philly offense was dealing with a ton of injuries in 2019, but Carson Wentz still put together another solid season, averaging 252.4 yards per game while throwing 27 touchdowns to just 7 interceptions.
Miles Sanders had a breakout rookie season and will enter 2020 as a potential bell-cow, Alshon Jeffery will hopefully be healthy again, and the team is expected to give Wentz another wide receiver in the draft.
On the defensive side of things, the Eagles added corners Darius Slay and Nickel Robey-Coleman, immediately boosting their secondary. This could push them over the top as an elite defense, since Football Outsiders' DVOA metrics had them ranked a modest 16th against the pass but fourth against the run in 2019.
Philly's Super Bowl odds are tied with the Dallas Cowboys, and only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+1700), New Orleans Saints (+1300), San Francisco 49ers (+900), Baltimore Ravens (+700) and Kansas City Chiefs (+650) are ahead of them.
The NFC postseason stands to get a lot more competitive in 2020, with Tom Brady now in the picture, but Eagles fans have to be pretty excited about boasting some of the league's best odds to win the Super Bowl for next season.
