Even the best NFL gambling sites can’t help but give even a passing thought to the dreaded Super Bowl hangover. As your current reigning and defending Super Bowl champions, the Eagles have probably thought about it too. Just look at recent years. The Denver Broncos. The Carolina Panthers. The Atlanta Falcons. The Patriots are the only team that seems immune to the apparent “curse.” The Eagles are returning most of the team that won Super Bowl LII. Though a fat lot of good that did the Falcons. Both Carson Wentz and Nick Foles are back. The former is the young gunslinger who led Philly to a 11-2 record before a season-ending injury, well, ended his season. The latter is the trusty backup who finished what Wentz started.

But are they really back? Wentz took part in seven-on-seven drills in organized team activities. However, Foles will be getting first team reps in training camp until Wentz is fully ready. Eagles head coach Doug Pedersen has made it known that the starting QB needs not undergo a full training camp. Or even play in any of the four preseason games. Wentz will thus be, barring any unforeseen event, the starter in Week 1. As for Foles, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may or may not be interested in him. You know, what with Jameis Winston possibly suspended for three games. Many things could happen from here to the official start of the season. But Foles should turn down any job offers that do not guarantee a fully-fledged starter position. And failing that, he should just remain in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Eagles road schedule
At Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Eagles last trip to Tampa took place in 2013, when they won 31-20.
At Tennessee Titans. Philly lost 19-37 to the Titans in 2010, their most recent visit to Nashville.
At New York Giants. A close victory versus the Giants in last season’s Week 15 helped the Eagles secure a first-round bye for the first time in 13 years. It was also their first game without Wentz.
At Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags blew out the Eagles 28-3 when they last hosted Philly in 2010.
At New Orleans Saints. The Eagles haven’t been to the Superdome since 2012, when they lost 28-13.
At Dallas Cowboys. Philly split the series with Dallas 1-1 last season.
At Los Angeles Rams. This has the makings of a shoot-out between Wentz and Jared Goff. As well as a hard one to predict for even the best NFL gambling sites.
At Washington Redskins. The Eagles opened their 2017 Super Bowl-winning season with a 30-17 win over the Skins at FedEx Field.
