The 1980 Philadelphia Eagles season was the team's 48th season in the National Football League. The Eagles won twelve of their sixteen games, winning their division for the first time in twenty years. The Eagles started the season winning eleven of their first twelve games, only to finish the season losing three of their final four. Still, the 12–4 record was good enough to win the NFC East division title.

The 1980 season marked the Eagles' third consecutive playoff appearance under coach Dick Vermeil, and culminated in the team's first Super Bowl appearance, where they were defeated by the Oakland Raiders.

Offseason[edit]

After going 11–5 in the 1979 season and making the playoffs again as a wildcard team, the Eagles found themselves looking to improve through the NFL Draft again.

1980 NFL Draft[edit]

The 1980 NFL Draft was the procedure by which National Football League teams selected amateur college football players. It is officially known as the NFL Annual Player Selection Meeting. The draft was held April 29–30, 1979. As was started with the 1977 NFL Draft, this would be 12 rounds. ESPN would cover all 12 rounds live for the first time. This would be over 2 days.

The Philadelphia Eagles would get the 23rd to the 25th pick in the 12 rounds. The Eagles would draft 10 players in this year's draft.

The draft began with first overall pick of 1978 Heisman Trophy winner, as a Jr. in college, Billy Sims, Running Back from University of Oklahoma, by the Detroit Lions.

Player Selections[edit]

The table shows the Eagles selections and what picks they had that were traded away and the team that ended up with that pick. It is possible the Eagles' pick ended up with this team via another trade the Eagles made. Not shown are acquired picks that the Eagles traded away.

Pre-Season[edit]

The Eagles that year would hold training camp at West Chester University in West Chester, Pennsylvania

Regular season[edit]

The 1980 season schedule was set by how the Eagles finished in 1979, 2nd in NFC East. The way it was laid out, 4 of the 5 teams in the same division could end up having 10 to 14 common opponents during the 1980 season. Also, when the last regular season game is over you know who you play the next year.

  • A home and home series vs Dallas, New York Giants, St. Louis and Washington = 8 games
  • The top 4 teams in the NFC East play the top 4 teams AFC WEST from the 1979 season = 4 games
  • the 2nd and 3rd place team in NFC Central and NFC West in the 1979 Season
