Aside from a brief Jalen Hurts' injury absence at the end of the regular season, nothing went wrong for the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2022 regular season. And now, they enter the NFL Playoffs with the No. 1 seed in the NFC and home-field advantage throughout the tournament.

Between the brilliance of Nick Sirianni and his coaching staff, Hurts' ability to do damage on the ground and through the air, the emergence of A.J. Brown as a true No. 1 wide receiver and an opportunistic defense, this Eagles squad is loaded.

But, there's a lot of expectations following such a tremendous regular season effort. And that pressure is only mounting thanks to a few key members of the coaching staff being in consideration for head coaching gigs when the season finishes.

Both of Sirianni's top coordinators are considered early possibilities for some of the open head coaching vacancies around this league. This includes defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon, who is already being called a top candidate for the Houston Texans role, and offensive coordinator Shane Steichen.

Steichen is the hotter commodity and has been requested for interviews by the Texans, Indianapolis Colts and Carolina Panthers.

Luckily, the Eagles enter the playoffs with the third-best odds (+500) to win Super Bowl 57 on FanDuel Sportsbook. They sit closely behind the Kansas City Chiefs (+330) and Buffalo Bills (+420), knowing those two teams will have to get through one another if they advance through the AFC.

The NFL changes quickly and the Eagles must capitalize on this great opportunity for their second title in the past six years.
