Team To Beat? Eagles in Super Bowl discussion

A 3-1 preseason filled with excitement and a showcase of talent started to open some eyes. There are at least two people that believe the Eagles have what it takes to claim the first Lombardi Trophy in franchise history. 

Highly-acclaimed ESPN reporter Adam Schefter and former Eagles team president Joe Banner, now with the Cleveland Browns, have picked the Eagles to win the Super Bowl.

Schefter made his prediction while joining 97.5 The Fanatic on Wednesday morning.

Banner announced his pick via Twitter.

They aren’t the only two giving the Eagles a fair shot to make it far.

Sports Illustated’s Peter King has the Eagles finishing the season with the NFC’s best record and falling in the NFC Championship game.

FOX Sports Peter Schrager also has the Eagles making a Super Bowl run.

The pick isn’t as outrageous as it may seem this early in the season. After their big win in Green Bay in the third week of the preseason, the Eagles odds to win Super Bowl 50 increased to 10 to 1, fifth best trailing only the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts.
