The 2008 Philadelphia Eagles season was the franchise's 76th season in the National Football League, and the tenth under head coach Andy Reid. The Eagles improved upon their 8–8 record and a fourth-place finish in the NFC East in the 2007 season by going 9–6–1 and earning the 6th seed in the NFC Playoffs. The team lost in the Conference Championship game.

Despite their low-seeding in the NFC playoffs, Football Outsiders calculated that the 2008 Eagles were the best team in the league, play-for-play.[1]

The 2006 Eagles were mentioned in the novel, but the 2008 Eagles were in the film adaptation of Silver Linings Playbook.

  1. ^ Football Outsiders: 2008 TEAM EFFICIENCY RATINGS "The Eagles are only the second team to lead the league in DVOA without a record of 12–4 or better. The other was the 1995 San Francisco 49ers at 11–5."
