The 2020 season was the Philadelphia Eagles' 88th in the National Football League and their fifth and final under head coach Doug Pederson. They failed to improve on their 9–7 record from the previous season following a 23–17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12. They were eliminated from playoff contention following a Week 16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys and finished with a dismal 4–11–1 record, their worst since 2012. After starting 3–4–1 heading into their bye week and leading the NFC East, the Eagles would lose 7 of their last 8 games. Injuries and poor quarterback play were factors in their struggles in the season.[1] On January 11, 2021, the Eagles announced head coach Doug Pederson would not return after the season, as he was dismissed the same day.

On July 14, 2020, the city of Philadelphia placed a ban on large events for six months, meaning that the Eagles' home games would have no fans in attendance.[2] However, starting in week 6, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney announced that the city would allow 7,500 fans to attend Eagles home games.[3] This was reversed on November 16, 2020 as the city of Philadelphia implemented outdoor restrictions.[4]
