Saturday at 7:25 PM: Kickoff Show delivered by Little Caesars
Join us for a preview of the Divisional Round showdown against the Giants.
Congratulations to the league-high EIGHT Philadelphia Eagles who have been selected by fans, coaches, and fellow players to take part in the 2023 NFL Pro Bowl! (That is unless the Eagles are in the Super Bowl.)
This year’s roster is complete with both first-year selections and experienced vets – all deserving of the honor. Here’s the list of the outstanding Eagles who made the roster!
What a season it has been for A.J. Brown!
Traded to the Philadelphia Eagles from the Tennessee Titans during the 2022 NFL Draft, Brown has proved his dominance at wide receiver game after game. He’s currently second in the league with 10 receiving touchdowns. This season has been his most successful yet – his new career high for receiving yards in a season is 1,201, surpassing 1,000 for the third time in his four-year tenure in the NFL.
“I’m blessed. I still have a lot more to do. It feels great to have people recognize my talent and the work I’ve done this year, but I and we still have a lot more work to do,” Brown said. – Sage Hurley
When Landon Dickerson was selected in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Alabama, there was no question about his talent. The All-America center and National Champion was coming off a season-ending knee injury.
That didn’t hold Dickerson back from winning the left guard job early in his rookie season and, in his first full season as the starter, he’s already among the best at his craft, earning Pro Bowl honors for the first time.
As one of three Pro Bowl players along the offensive line, Dickerson helped the Eagles score an NFL-best 53 touchdowns through the first 15 weeks of the season. The Eagles are just two touchdowns shy of a new franchise record. Philadelphia also leads the league with 30 rushing touchdowns, already a team record. The Eagles are just the fifth team since the merger in 1970 to score 25+ rushing touchdowns in back-to-back seasons and the first since the Chiefs from 2002-05.
Averaging 158.6 yards per game on the ground, the Eagles rank fourth in the league. Dickerson has allowed just one sack and three quarterback hits all season, according to PFF. – Chris McPherson
Quarterback Jalen Hurts is squarely in the MVP discussion, helping lead the Eagles to a 13-1 record, the best mark in the league and tying for the best start by an Eagles team in franchise history.
The third-year quarterback has played at an elite level all season long, as his numbers tell the story:
• Hurts has scored 35 total touchdowns, including a franchise-QB-record 13 rushing. No quarterback in the NFC has generated more touchdowns than Hurts.
• Hurts averages 8.2 yards per pass attempt, which is the best in the NFC and second in the league.
• Hurts’ passer rating of 104.6 is fourth in the league and second in the NFC.
In addition to earning respect from coaches around the league and his peers, Hurts was the top vote-getter among all NFC quarterbacks.
Hurts earned his first Pro Bowl selection during a breakout season in which he was recognized as the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for September after amassing 1,083 total yards and seven touchdowns. He became the first player in NFL history with 900+ passing yards and 150+ rushing yards in the first three games of a season.
He followed that up with several sterling performances, including outings against the Packers and Titans, which earned him back-to-back NFC Offensive Player of the Week accolades, becoming the first Eagle to do so since Michael Vick in 2010. Against the Packers, he set the franchise single-game rushing record by a quarterback (157), and versus the Titans, he became the first player in team history to throw for 350+ yards, toss 3+ touchdowns, and rush for another. – Chris McPherson
The best right tackle in football is going back to the Pro Bowl for the fourth time in his 10-year career! Johnson, a team captain who’s started each one of the 126 games he’s played as an Eagle, has not allowed a single sack since Week 11 of the 2020 season.
His consistency is unmatched – he owns the NFL record for the most consecutive games and pass plays without giving up a sack, according to Pro Football Focus. This season, he’s recorded the most pass blocks (444) of ANY offensive tackle without a sack allowed this season, and he’s not slowing down. He’s allowed just one pressure over the last five games. – Sage Hurley
No center in Eagles history has earned more Pro Bowl selections than Jason Kelce, who was voted to his sixth all-star appearance in 12 NFL seasons, providing another reason he should one day be inducted in both the Eagles Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame when his career is over.
In fact, the only offensive lineman with more Pro Bowl selections in Eagles history is Jason Peters, who earned seven during his tenure.
“It’s cool,” Kelce said of the honor. “Hopefully, we’re busier at that time of the year than having any of us go to the Pro Bowl.”
Kelce remains at the top of his game as he is the league’s highest-graded center, according to Pro Football Focus.
Well respected by everyone, the Christmas crooner also earned the most Pro Bowl votes from the fans. – Chris McPherson
Six seasons and three teams later – Haason Reddick has finally earned a Pro Bowl nod! Representing his hometown football team, Reddick has been an undeniable force as a pass rusher. So far, in his first year as an Eagle, he’s produced four forced fumbles plus 12 sacks and 19 QB hits. In the team’s game against the Giants, he became the first player in NFL history to post three consecutive 10+ sack seasons on three different teams.
“It’s a blessing and it’s gratifying that it happened,” said Reddick, who was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week after registering two sacks, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries earlier this season against the Jaguars. “I was excited to hear the news and I was like, ‘Finally, here we go.’ I’m just part of it here and it’s what the team does that matters, but I’m happy about it and I’m very thankful.”
The honor is a culmination of his tumultuous football journey, which began as a walk-on at Temple University. After stints with the Cardinals and Panthers, he’s back near his hometown of Camden, New Jersey, disrupting offenses as an integral member of the 13-1 Eagles. – Sage Hurley
For the first time in his four-year career, Miles Sanders is a Pro Bowl selection! He’s been essential to the Eagles’ run game, recording 215 carries for a career-high 1,110 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns through Week 15. He ranks fifth in the league in both of those categories.
“Feels good. Dream come true. There is plenty more to come, hopefully,” Sanders said. “There is a lot of hard work behind all of this and I’m excited for it and for the success the team is having.”
This season has been full of career highs, as Sanders rushed for a personal-best 144 yards in the win over the Giants. He is the first Eagles running back since LeSean McCoy to eclipse 1,000 yards in a season. – Sage Hurley
Big Play Slay is going to the Pro Bowl in back-to-back years with the Eagles and for the fifth time in his 10 NFL seasons.
Slay is an instrumental part of the NFL’s top-ranked passing defense (172.4 yards per game) and the third best when it comes to opponent passer rating (80.8).
Individually, Slay has already matched his 2021 interceptions total (3) and has more passes defensed (13).
In the Eagles’ home opener against the Vikings, a huge win considering the playoff race, Slay earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors after notching a career-high five pass deflections and two interceptions. In the first meeting with the Cowboys, Slay earned his highest coverage grade of the season from PFF, snagging an interception along the way. Slay’s 79.4 coverage grade for the year is the third among NFC cornerbacks. – Chris McPherson
