The 1985Philadelphia Eagles season was their 53rd in the league. The team improved upon their previous output of 6–9–1, winning seven games. This was the fourth consecutive season in which the team failed to qualify for the playoffs.
Philadelphia was in position to earn a wild-card berth with a 6–5 record by late November, but a four-game losing streak torpedoed their playoff hopes. That losing streak also cost head coach Marion Campbell his job before the season finale at Minnesota. Under interim coach Fred Bruney, the Birds pulled off a 37–35 victory at the Metrodome to finish the season on an up note.
Two bright spots emerged at the quarterback position.. Ron Jaworski returned from the broken leg suffered at the end of the 1984 season, and performed well enough (3,450 passing yards, 17 TDs) to be considered for comeback player of the year, though no award was given out. In addition, second-round draft pick Randall Cunningham made his debut on September 22 at Washington and earned his first career victory at RFK Stadium.
