The 1987 Philadelphia Eagles season was their 55th in the league. Despite the interruption of the schedule by the second strike in six seasons, the team improved upon their previous output of 5–10–1, going 7–8.[1] However, three of those losses came during the three-game stretch during the strike when teams were staffed primarily with replacement players, or "scabs," who crossed the picket lines to suit up. Despite the improvement, the team once again failed to qualify for the playoffs.

Defensive lineman Reggie White nonetheless had a breakout season, establishing a new NFL record by exploding for 21 sacks in only 12 games.

On October 25 at Veterans Stadium, in the first game back after the strike was settled, Eagles head coach Buddy Ryan called for the infamous "fake spike" in the final seconds with the hosts leading the Dallas Cowboys by 10 points. The fake eventually led to another late touchdown, payback for Cowboys head coach Tom Landry running up the score with starters who crossed the picket line to play two weeks earlier at Texas Stadium. One week later, Philadelphia won its final road game against the Cardinals at the old Busch Stadium, before the franchise moved to Phoenix for the 1988 season.


Off Season[edit]

NFL Draft[edit]

The 1987 NFL Draft was the procedure by which National Football League teams selected amateur college football players. The draft was held April 28–29, 1987 in New York City. This again would be a 12 round draft of 28 teams.

The Philadelphia Eagles would get the 9th in the 12 rounds. They would make 10 selection in the draft.

The draft began with first overall pick of 1986 Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde, Quarterback from Miami (FLA), by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

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 team that the Eagles made a trade with. Not shown are acquired picks that the Eagles traded away.

NFL Supplemental Draft[edit]

The Eagles would also use a pick in the 1987 NFL Supplemental Draft to take Cris Carter a Wide receiver out of Ohio State. Prior to Carter's senior season in 1987, he secretly signed with notorious sports agent Norby Walters. When the contract was discovered, Carter was ruled ineligible to play for Ohio State.

Regular season[edit]

In 1987, Mike Quick was part of NFL history. He finished second in the NFL in Touchdown receptions with 11. The leader was Jerry Rice with 23. This marked the first time in NFL history that a category leader doubled the total of his nearest competitor.[3]
