The schedule is out tonight. Some of you get really fired up for this. I’m a bit more ambivalent, but it is fun to take a look and see who the Eagles play and when they play them.

The game that jumps out…Thanksgiving at Dallas. I don’t know what to make of that game. My family aren’t very big football fans. Normally we eat a lot and goof off. I get them to watch a few minutes of football, but not much. This year is going to be very different. It will be kinda fun to play on Thanksgiving. There is something cool about playing on that day.
There are 4 primetime games:
Week 2 – at IND – MNF
Week 6 – NYG – SNF
Week 10 – CAR – MNF
Week 15 – DAL – SNF
It is interesting that 3 of them are at home. I’m not sure if that is good or bad.
I can’t say opening the season with JAX is compelling, but that should be a favorable matchup for the Eagles.
My biggest complaint is playing Dallas twice in the span of 3 weeks. That’s too good a rivalry to treat it like that.
The Eagles close out the season with 3 straight division games. Based on recent years, that could very well decide the division title. The NFC East race tends to be pretty close.
Do you guys love or hate the schedule?
Any games really grab your attention?
