The Eagles have a few prime time games on their schedule. Outside of the Monday night game against the Falcons, they also play the Giants at home on Monday Night Football on October 19th, then the Carolina Panthers on Sunday Night Football the very next week. Following the bye week, the Eagles take on the Cowboys in Dallas on Sunday Night Football. After that, they play on Sunday afternoons until week 16 against the Redskins at home on Sunday Night Football. That game comes the day after Christmas.
They also have a few tough opponents outside of their division to face off against, including the defending champion New England Patriots on the road and the Arizona Cardinals at home in December. Based on last season's results, which won't matter, the schedule looks easier in the beginning and tough in December.
But one of the matchups most fans are really looking forward to is the December 13th game against Buffalo. Why is everyone looking forward to playing the Bills? It's only the highly anticipated return of LeSean McCoy to Philly, that's all. He should be greeted by some cheers and some boos, but no love will be lost once the game starts.
It's far too early to give any predictions, especially since we still don't know who will be under center come September 14th, but I'd say they finish with anywhere between 1-16 wins. Pretty safe prediction, but also a very likely outcome. I just play the numbers game, and this is what the numbers told me.
