The 2022-23 magical regular season for the Philadelphia Eagles has seen the franchise set the record for wins, points, sacks, and plenty of others.
Another top accolade was given to the team on Friday morning.
The Eagles had six players named to the AP All-Pro team. Center, Jason Kelce and Tackle, Lane Johnson were the two representatives of the team on the First Team All-Pro list. Jalen Hurts, AJ Brown, Haason Reddick, and James Bradberry were listed on the second team.
The first team designations were Kelce’s fifth of his career while it was Johnson’s second. All second-team representatives were named for the first time for each player. Kelce and Johnson have not given up a sack all season between the two players. Jason Kelce becomes the eighth center in league history to be named to the first-team All-Pro team. The other seven are in the Hall-of-Fame.
Jalen Hurts made huge strides in his third season with the Eagles setting career highs in yards, touchdowns, passer rating, and TD: INT Ratio. He was also 14-1 as the Eagles starting quarterback this year.
A big reason for Jalen Hurts’ success has been the arrival of wide receiver, AJ Brown. Brown set the Eagles’ franchise mark with 1,496 yards receiving. His 88 catches and 11 touchdowns this season were also career highs.
New Eagles earn their feathers
Both James Bradberry and Haason Reddick were acquisitions by the Eagles in the offseason and both paid off in a big way. Reddick finished second in the league in sacks with 16. He’s the first pass rusher in NFL history to total over 10+ sacks in three straight seasons with three different teams.
James Bradberry has been one of the best lockdown corners in football. He ranks second in the NFL among corners in catch rate allowed, and passer rating allowed.
The six nominations were tied for the most in Eagles history with the 2002 Eagles setting the mark first.
While regular season marks are excellent in context the 14-3 Eagles still hope to remain steadfast in their goal to earn their second Lombardi Trophy in franchise history.
