This schedule is already a win, that early bye killed us last year.

Having a 5-4 record heading into the week 10 Bye, and nice late season rest, can really set us up for the playoffs, even against good competition... getting to 5-4 on tired bodies will be the trick.

Last year the Eagles faced 3 teams coming off bye weeks(2 division rivals), and this year there are none, and they Eagles face Dallas coming off of their own bye week. If they can start out strong with the 2 away games, they could have a really good season.

Forgot Denver has QB probs, guess Lynch is starting so we have a shot at 10-6, enough for the playoffs.

Well we need CB's or their WR's will dance all over us

So we drew Carolina and Da Bears. Not bad. Need to be able to beat the Bears. Carolina is super inconsistent. Hard to predict where they will be at. That game being on Thur night makes it an even more wild card game. Glad to see only one Thur night game on the schedule.

Our division is much tougher. We got a weird schedule and a lot of good teams we will be facing. I'm worried and excited at the same time. This year will be a great test to see where we are overall as a team and to see how Wentz improves. He did great year one and now I'm expecting even more from him. Let's reclaim this division! Go Eagles!

I like that there's a rematch of every playoff game, a pretty cool 1st

It'll be a great Christmas for me if the Eagles beat the Raiders at home Christmas night. Wouldn't it be cool to see Wentz toss 8 TD's vs. the Raiders and own the record? ☺

Looks like a fun schedule this year....Honestly right now game i am most excited for is Philly vs Oakland on Christmas......On paper could be one of the best games of the year

Basing strength of schedule on opponents W/L records last year doesn't mean much. I think where and when they have to travel this year means more.
Last night I thought this was a terrible schedule for us but after further review it's not so bad as it could have been.

They just did this one so the announcers could go on and on about throwing snowballs at Santa.

Meds in the NFL vs DEA, interesting to some

If the Raiders get Beastmode they could ruin NE's almost perfect season - that would be precious

So the break down on ESPN has us going 9-7 with two wins against Dallas and splitting the division the rest of the way interesting but at this point its only thought there will be a lot that changes come next week.

These sports organizations that think they can predict the W's & L's before the season even starts (let alone the Draft) kills me. Even during the season,no matter what the records are,who's at home,and anything else that could come into play,it's too hard to sort out. The NFL is so competitive that you could flip a coin on any given game day to determine who will get the W! :fishing:  They could play Rock'em Sock'em Robots to pick the winners for all I care!

Giants have 4 games vs teams coming off their bye's. Didn't we have 3 last yr?

Yes,3 is correct sir. And I'm not sure,but I think they were all in a row. Just to make things even,the Eagles should get to play 3 teams coming off of their BYE this season.

Eagles at Cheeves in September. I'll be at that one. It's only about a 5 hour drive.

I read an article last night about how opioids are practically passed out like M&M's to get some players on the field. It was an article that about 60 some percent Americans favor NFL players using marijuana for pain vs. opioids.

Rueben Foster fails his drug test, so he may be around for the Eagles at 14. Draft him! He is a game changer and will ignite this offense. He will cancel out Elliott. The dude is not the brightest bulb on the tree, but he can play football....
