The Eagles 2019 schedule was released earlier this week. I’ll plan on making predictions for each game prior to week 1, but for now, check out the schedule below along with my top-5 initial reactions:

  • Week 1 –vs. Washington

  • Week 2 – @ Atlanta

  • Week 3 – vs. Detroit

  • Week 4 – @ Green Bay

  • Week 5 – vs. NYJ

  • Week 6 – @ Minnesota

  • Week 7 – @ Dallas

  • Week 8 – @ Buffalo

  • Week 9 – vs. Chicago

  • Week 10 – Bye Week

  • Week 11 – vs. New England

  • Week 12 – vs. Seattle

  • Week 13 – @ Miami

  • Week 14 – vs. NYG

  • Week 15 – @ Washington

  • Week 16 – vs. Dallas

  • Week 17 – @ NYG

  1. I love that we open against Washington at home. Nothing like getting a division win at the Linc to start the year off right.

  2. The three-game stretch of road games during weeks 6-8 (Minnesota/Dallas/Buffalo) is rough. Thankfully we don’t need to travel to the west coast or Europe like last year.

  3. I like the week 10 bye week. Any extra time to prepare for New England is always welcomed.

  4. In weeks 9-12 the Birds face three playoff teams from last year (Chicago/New England/Seattle). This will be a good test to see what this team is made of. Thankfully the bye week will break up this gauntlet a bit.

  5. Weeks 14-17 is where the division will be won, with the Eagles playing four division games in a row. I can’t wait to see how the month of December plays out!
