Eagles Records and Accolades That Could Be Achieved in 2021

As the 2021 season approaches, there are plenty of Eagles veterans (and youngsters too) that can climb up the annals of Eagles history during the regular season. The following list will detail each player's stats heading into the season, and just how high they can ascend on the Eagles' leaderboards.

Jalen Hurts

With the addition of a 17th game, Hurts has a solid chance of setting the franchise record for passing yards in a season. Carson Wentz currently holds the record (4,039), but Hurts would only need to average 237 yards a game if he is healthy and plays in all 17 games.

Miles Sanders

  • Miles Sanders (1,685) is 315 yards away from becoming the 20th Eagle in history with 2,000+ rushing yards

  • Miles Sanders (9) is 1 rushing TD away from becoming the 31st Eagle with 10+ rushing touchdowns.

  • If Sanders produces the same amount of rushing yards as he did last season, he will have a total of 2,552 yards which would put him in 13th place on the Eagles all-time rushing list.

Zach Ertz

  • If Ertz (117) plays in all 17 games this season, he'll tie Bucko Kilroy and Nate Ramsey (134) for the 25th-most games played in Eagles history. In that process, he'd also pass Pete Retzlaff (132) for the 2nd-most games played by a TE in team history, behind only Brent Celek (175).

  • Ertz (36) is tied with Jeremy Maclin for the 7th-most receiving touchdowns in Eagles history. He'd need to go back to his prime-self if he wants to reach Bobby Walston (46) for 6th place.

  • Ertz (561) needs 29 receptions to pass Harold Carmichael (589) for the most receptions in Eagles history

  • Ertz currently has the 12th-most receptions by a tight end in NFL history. If he catches his career average (70 receptions/season), he'll pass Heath Miller (592) and sit in 9th-place.

  • Ertz (6,078) needs 387 yards to pass Mike Quick (6,464) for the 4th-most receiving yards in Eagles history, and he could even pass DeSean Jackson (6,512) for 3rd place.

  • Ertz (12) currently has the 11th-most 100-yard receiving games in Eagles history. If he can somehow muster up six 100-yard performances in 2020, he'll pass Tommy McDonald (17) for 5th-place in that accolade.

  • Ertz (11) is one 10+ catch performance from passing Jason Witten for the 2nd-most 10+ catch games by a TE in NFL history, and is just five 10+ catch performances away from passing Tony Gonzalez (15) for the most by a TE in NFL history.

DeVonta Smith

  • The Eagles rookie franchise record for receiving yards was set by DeSean Jackson (912 in 2008). With the addition of a 17th game, Smith will only need to average 54 yards a game to break the record if he is healthy enough to play every game this season.

Lane Johnson

  • In Week 1 Johnson will play in his 100th game as an Eagle, becoming the 76th player in team history to achieve that milestone.

Jason Kelce

  • Kelce (142) has played the 19th-most games in an Eagles uniform. If he is able to play in all 17 games this season, he'll tie Randy Logan (159) for 9th-place; he will also have played the 2nd-most games by a center in Eagles history, passing Guy Morriss (158).

Brandon Graham

  • Graham (159) has played the 8th-most games in an Eagles uniform. If he is able to play in all 17 games this season, he'll pass Brent Celek (175) for 4th place.

  • Graham (312) currently has the 22nd-most solo tackles in Eagles history. If he can reach his average this season (28 solo tackles/season), he'll pass Michael Lewis (325) for 17th place.

Fletcher Cox

  • Cox (140) has played the 20th-most games in an Eagles uniform. If he is able to play in all 17 games this season, he'll pass Jerry Sisemore (156) for 11th-place. He would also pass Ken Clarke (148) for the most games played by a defensive tackle in franchise history.

  • Cox (54.5) currently has the 8th-most sacks in Eagles history. He needs just 3.5 sacks to pass Carl Hairston for 5th place.

Jake Elliott

  • Elliott (88) needs just four made field goals to pass Paul McFadden (91) for the 2nd-most field goals made in team history. He has a long ways to catch David Akers (294) for the top of the throne.

  • Elliott (12) is 5 50+ FGs away from passing David Akers (16) for the most in Eagles history

  • Elliott (395) currently the 9th-most points scored in Eagles history. He'll have a good shot at passing Sam Baker (475) for the 3rd-most points in franchise history. He has a ways to go to catch Bobby Walston (881) and David Akers (1,323)

The Eagles Franchise

  • The Eagles (589) are 11 wins away from 600 wins as a franchise.
