The 1988 Philadelphia Eagles season was the franchise's 56th season in the National Football League.

The Eagles playing against the Chicago Bears in the famous "Fog Bowl"

This season resulted an appearance in the postseason for the first time since 1981. The Eagles won the NFC East for the first time since 1980, but lost to the Chicago Bears in the NFC Divisional round during the Fog Bowl.

In control of their own destiny for a playoff berth, but not the NFC East title on the final day of the regular season, Philadelphia dumped Dallas, 23-7, guaranteed a minimum of a wild card berth, but had to wait for the end to the Jets-Giants game at Giants Stadium to learn if they had clinched the division or not to avoid the Wild Card round. The Jets won the game, 27-21, on a late TD strike from Ken O'Brien to Al Toon, giving the Eagles the NFC East crown on the tiebreaker of having beaten the Giants in both regular-season meetings.

The first quarter ended with the Eagles up 21 to 0 after Anthony Toney ran for a TD and Cunningham threw an 8-yard TD to Jackson. The Eagles even scored on a 38-yard TD run by safety Terry Hoage on the only carry of his 13-year career.[3]
