Our writers spent their summers at every Eagles press conference, practice and preseason game. Now, they'll try their hand at predicting every regular-season game.

Zach Berman

Projected record: 11-5

GAME 1 | Falcons at Eagles: It's tough to pick against the Eagles at home – especially with an emotionally charged crowd – but the first-team offense is dealing with injuries and rust, and the absence of LB Nigel Bradham hurts the run defense. Loss

GAME 2 | Eagles at Buccaneers: The Eagles have extra time to rest and play an offense that's missing QB Jameis Winston. That's a good formula for an Eagles win. Win

GAME 3 | Colts at Eagles: The return of QB Andrew Luck makes this a tougher game, but Eagles QB Carson Wentz should have his way against the Colts defense in Frank Reich's return to Philadelphia. Win

GAME 4 | Eagles at Titans: This is a tough game against a talented team, which should be improved with a new coaching staff. Wentz finally plays against CB Malcolm Butler, who was benched by New England during the Super Bowl before signing with Tennessee. Win 

GAME 5 | Vikings at Eagles: The Philadelphia crowd will be energized for an NFC championship game rematch, and the teams are good enough that it could also be an NFC championship game preview. Even though the Vikings added QB Kirk Cousins, the Eagles will repeat January's result. Win

GAME 6 | Eagles at Giants: It's a quick turnaround for a Thursday night game, although the Eagles only need to travel up the New Jersey Turnpike. The Eagles have won seven of their last eight games against the Giants, and they'll extend that streak. Win 

GAME 7 | Panthers at Eagles: The Eagles won in Carolina last year during a short week. Give the Eagles a home crowd and extended rest and they have the clear advantage. Win 

GAME 8 |  Eagles at Jaguars (in London): Jacksonville has won its last three games in London, and it hasn't always had the talent that it has this season. This is going to be a tough trip for the Eagles in addition to a tough opponent. Loss

GAME 9 |  Cowboys at Eagles: The Eagles come back from the bye with a prime-time game against a bitter rival. The same scenario happened last year, and you saw what happened. Plus, this one is at home. Win

GAME 10 | Eagles at Saints: One of the Eagles' biggest obstacles in their quest for another Super Bowl, the Saints are a balanced team that is tough to beat in New Orleans. The Eagles will learn the hard way. Loss

GAME 11 | Giants at Eagles: The Giants are a tougher team this year than last, especially with a healthy Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley at RB. The Eagles need to protect their home field and start a string of division games off with success. Win

GAME 12 | Redskins at Eagles: Carson Wentz's stardom reached a new level during a Monday night against Washington last year. If Wentz is playing at that level again, it will be a good sign for the Eagles' hopes to repeat. Win 

GAME 13 | Eagles at Cowboys: The Cowboys have extended rest, and the Eagles have a short week. That's a tough recipe for the third consecutive NFC East game. Loss

GAME 14 | Eagles at Rams: In one of the marquee games on the NFL schedule, QB Carson Wentz returns to the site of last year's injury. The Eagles pulled out a close game in Los Angeles last season, although the Rams should be even better this year. Loss

GAME 15 | Texans at Eagles: Carson Wentz and DeShaun Watson could be MVP candidates for years to come, as Jalen Ramsey told GQ. Both players will be recovered from their knee injuries, but the Eagles have a better team around their quarterback. Win 

GAME 16 | Eagles at Redskins: The Eagles will have the NFC East locked up by this point. Will they still be playing for a bye or home-field advantage? In a loaded NFC, Week 17 could take on more importance. Win 

Les Bowen

Projected record: 12-4

GAME 1 | Falcons at Eagles: Too many Eagles on the mend and not quite ready for the season to start so soon. This happens a lot to teams that win the Super Bowl. The Falcons will be really fired up about the five-point playoff loss, which came down to one play. Loss

GAME 2 | Eagles at Buccaneers: Don't have great regard for the Bucs from what I've read and seen. Also don't think the Eagles start out 0-2. Win

GAME 3 | Colts at Eagles: Even with Andrew Luck back, the Colts' roster doesn't match up with the Eagles. It will be interesting to see what Frank Reich's knowledge of the Birds' personnel and schemes might produce. But Frank isn't playing. Win

GAME 4 | Eagles at Titans: The Eagles have never won at Tennessee (0-2, losing in 2002 and 2010). I say it's time. Win

GAME 5 | Vikings at Eagles: The score probably won't be 38-7 this time, Kirk Cousins and John DeFilippo can hurt the Eagles, but nah. Win

GAME 6 | Eagles at Giants: Both teams are playing on four days rest. The Giants are home, coming back from a game at Carolina. I like Pat Shurmur. I think the Giants could take a big step forward this year, but 37-year-old Eli Manning and that offensive line against the Eagles' pass rush? Don't see it. Win

GAME 7 | Panthers at Eagles: The Panthers were a tough opponent last year, and they figure to be again. Don't like them coming into the Linc and winning, though, unless Ricky Manning Jr. comes out of retirement. Fun fact: Ricky and Eli are the same age, but they are not twins. Win

GAME 8 | Eagles at Jaguars (in London): London games often are unpredictable. Routines are disrupted. In this case, count on a pro-Eagles crowd making the Birds feel at home. But Jacksonville's defense is for real. The Eagles have to stumble here and there. Don't they? Loss

GAME 9 | Cowboys at Eagles: The bye week benefit ought to get the Eagles a home win here over the Cowboys, who still lack weapons for QB Dak Prescott. Win

GAME 10 | Eagles at Saints: It's tough to win in the Superdome. It's tough to outsmart QB Drew Brees. Loss

GAME 11 | Giants at Eagles: Is QB Eli Manning still going to be upright by Thanksgiving? I'll take the home team. Win

GAME 12 | Redskins at Eagles: So the Eagles don't meet divisional rival Washington until December? This slipped past me when the schedule came out. Really unusual. QB Alex Smith beat the Birds last year for Kansas City, but again I'll take the Birds at home. Win

GAME 13 | Eagles at Cowboys: It's a short week and a tough road venue, but I'm not a Dallas believer. Win

GAME 14 | Eagles at Rams: Back to the scene of the crime, the L.A. Coliseum, where QB Carson Wentz's 2017 season ended. Everybody says the Rams improved their roster in free agency. To me, it all had kind of a dream-team feel. But they are a good team, and the Eagles were fortunate to come out here and win a year ago. It might not happen this time. Loss

GAME 15 | Texans at Eagles: I'm really looking forward to seeing QB DeShaun Watson. The Eagles' O-line is going to have to be perfect to keep J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus and Jadeveon Clowney out of QB Carson Wentz's lap. I trust Jeff Stoutland to figure that out. Win

GAME 16 | Eagles at Redskins: The Eagles close out the regular season at FedEx Field. Will they be resting starters again at this point? Dunno. Assuming not, I'll take them to win and get that playoff bye. Win

Paul Domowitch

Projected record: 10-6

GAME 1 | Falcons at Eagles: If it comes down to an end zone pass to Julio Jones again, my money is on him catching it this time.  Loss

GAME 2 | Eagles at Buccaneers: The Eagles are catching the Bucs without suspended QB Jameis Winston. Ryan Fitzpatrick should be good for 2 or 3 picks. Win

GAME 3 | Colts  at Eagles: The Eagles' pass rush should have a lot of fun against a Colts offensive line that gave up an NFL-high 56 sacks last season. Win

GAME 4 | Eagles at Titans: The Eagles have played in Nashville just twice since the Oilers/Titans moved there in 1997. They lost both times. Loss

GAME 5 | Vikings at Eagles: With Dalvin Cook and Kirk Cousins, the Vikings are a better team than they were in January. Then again, so are the Eagles. Win

GAME 6 | Eagles at Giants: The Giants' two losses to the Eagles last season were by a total of eight points. And now they've got Saquon Barkley. Loss

GAME 7 | Panthers at Eagles: Cam Newton had three interceptions and a 48.5 passer rating in a five-point loss to the Eagles last year. Win

GAME 8 | Eagles at Jaguars (in London): London is like a second home to the Jags. They've won their last three games there. Loss

GAME 9 | Cowboys at Eagles: The Eagles' defense had three interceptions and sacked QB Dak Prescott four times in a 28-point Week 11 win last year. Win

GAME 10 | Eagles at Saints: The defense will have its hands full with versatile RB Alvin Kamara, who averaged 7.7 yards per touch last season. Loss

GAME 11 | Giants at Eagles: Four of the Eagles' last six games are against NFC East opponents. Their only division loss last year came in Week 17. Win

GAME 12 | Redskins at Eagles: QB Carson Wentz had a 113.7 passer rating and averaged 9.0 yards per attempt against Redskins in 2017. Win

GAME 13 | Eagles at Cowboys: The Eagles have won four of their last five games at AT&T Stadium. Win

GAME 14 | Eagles at Rams: RB Todd Gurley averaged 7.4 yards per carry and 13.0 yards per catch against the Eagles last year. Loss

GAME 15 | Texans at Eagles: QB Deshaun Watson was on a 43-touchdown pass pace when he tore his ACL last October. Win

GAME 16 | Eagles at Redskins: The Redskins aren't known for their strong finishes. They are 2-8 in Week 17 games over the last 10 years. Win

Jeff McLane

Projected record: 11-5

GAME 1 | Falcons at Eagles: The Eagles weren't sharp in the preseason, particularly on offense, and the uncertainty at quarterback will make beating the Falcons – a trendy Super Bowl pick – difficult. Loss

GAME 2 | Eagles at Buccaneers: If the talented Eagles lose their home opener, the law of averages would suggest they bounce back against a Bucs team that will be without QB Jameis Winston. Win

GAME 3 | Colts at Eagles: QB Andrew Luck is back. But will he be the same QB as before his shoulder surgery? The Eagles will see some similarities in the Colts, who hired former Eagles assistant Frank Reich as head coach. Win

GAME 4 | Eagles at Titans: The Titans are seen by some as a team on the rise, but QB Marcus Mariota must reduce his turnovers. Still, they're a tough out at home having won 10 of their last 12 in Nashville. Loss

GAME 5 | Vikings at Eagles: The rematch of the NFC championship that some incorrectly reported would be the opener – Hello, Howard Eskin! – pits another of Doug Pederson's acolytes (Minnesota OC John DeFilippo) against the Eagles. Win 

GAME 6 | Eagles at Giants: When the Eagles won at the Panthers last season on Thursday night in Week 6, it legitimized them. They have another short road week but only travel up the Jersey turnpike. Win

GAME 7 | Panthers at Eagles: Evaluations of the Panthers often depend upon one's opinion of Cam Newtown. Is the quarterback one of the toughest to defend or overrated and reckless? Carolina is a tough assignment either way. Win

GAME 8 | Eagles at Jaguars (in London): The Eagles play their first regular-season game outside the continental United States. The Jaguars should have an advantage having played six straight years at Wembley Stadium. And they should be good. Loss

GAME 9 | Cowboys at Eagles: The Eagles come off a ninth-week bye for the second straight season and begin a stretch in which they will face five divisional opponents in their final eight games. Win

GAME 10 | Eagles at Saints: The Saints' offense may have been a greater test for the Eagles in the NFC title game. A year later, RBs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram will be tough to contain at the Superdome. Loss

GAME 11 | Giants at Eagles: The Giants are hoping that RB Saquon Barkley will ease pressure on QB Eli Manning. If the aging QB doesn't have time, he won't be effective enough. Win

GAME 12 | Redskins at Eagles: QB Alex Smith is a marginal upgrade over Kirk Cousins, but he doesn't have much to throw to and not much to hand off to after promising rookie Derrius Guice was lost for the season. Win

GAME 13 | Eagles at Cowboys: The Cowboys' success over the last several years has been tied to the strength of their offensive line. But fourth fifths of the unit was nursing injuries at the start of the season. Win

GAME 14 | Eagles at Rams: QB Carson Wentz returns to the scene of his season-ending knee injury. If he's healthy at this point, there's a strong chance the Eagles are playoff contenders and equipped to beat the Rams again. Win

GAME 15 | Texans at Eagles: The Texans are some pundits' sexy pick to rebound from a losing season and make the postseason. A healthy QB DeShaun Watson could make that possible and the specter of a late December win tenuous. Win

GAME 16 | Eagles at Redskins: Like last season, the finale could be meaningless if all has gone according to plan. But the NFC East could also be on the line if the Redskins finally manage to win more than nine games. Loss
