The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional football team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They are members of the National Football League (NFL) as part of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the NFC East division. Founded in 1933, the team has played home games at Lincoln Financial Field since 2003.

The club was established in 1933 as a replacement for the bankrupt Frankford Yellow Jackets after a syndicate led by future NFL commissioner Bert Bell purchased the rights to a Philadelphia franchise from the league. The Eagles were named after the Blue Eagle, a symbol used for the New Deal stimulus programs initiated during the Great Depression. The team joined as an expansion team along with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Eagles have won three NFL titles in 1948, 1949, and 1960. During the Super Bowl modern era, the Eagles have made two Super Bowl appearances, losing both (in 1980 to the Oakland Raiders and in 2004 to the New England Patriots).
