Philadelphia Eagles Team History
Founded in 1933, the Philadelphia Eagles play in the Eastern Division of the National Conference of the National Football League.
Considering the long history of the Philadelphia Eagles, the team has not been overly successful on the field, only making two trips to the Super Bowl, losing to the Oakland Raiders in 1980 and the New England Patriots in 2004.
But that doesn’t dampen Eagles fans passion for their team. The Bird Gang bleeds green. They are among the most loyal sports fans in the land.
