It's everybody’s favorite time; bold prediction time, baby. The Philadelphia Eagles had a bold 2013 NFL season, and are heading into 2014 on a positive note. They are the favorites to repeat as NFC East Division Champions, yet a lot must go right from now until the end of the regular season, for that to happen. While the team needs to maintain consistency, there's nothing wrong in dreaming a little bigger. Here are five bold predictions for 2014.

5. The Eagles will have at least seven Pro-Bowlers

Out of Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Peters, Jason Kelce, Evan Mathis, Fletcher Cox, Mychal Kendricks, and Donnie Jones, at least seven of these players will be voted into the Pro Bowl.

4. The Eagles will have at least three kick return touchdowns

With Darren Sproles, Brandon Boykin, and company patrolling kick and punt returns, expect a few to be taken to the house in 2014.

While much has been discussed about Foles’ 27-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio in 2013, many people think the INT number will go up drastically. The prediction here is that he keeps it in single digits, while starting all 16 games.

2. LeSeaon McCoy will break his career-high for total touchdowns

That number to beat is 20, so it will have to be an extraordinary season for McCoy. If he does reach that milestone, it will be one fun season for Eagles fans.

The Super Bowl would have been extremely bold, but making it this far is just bold enough.
