A Look Into The Eagles 2024-25 Schedule

A Look Into The Eagles 2024-25 Schedule
The NFL schedules have been released and one can tell the popularity of the league when a schedule release is a akin to almost a national holiday. 

All 32 teams now produce hype videos with the Eagles’ hype video ranking No. 1 by The Athletic. 

If the team plays even nearly as well as the entertaining video, then this should be a special season. 

Here are a couple of thoughts about the schedule:

1. The Eagles don’t face anybody this year who is coming off a bye. That is important because teams usually play well off a bye. Now the Eagles won’t be facing an opponent who is coming off a well-deserved breather. 

2. Speaking of the bye, for the Eagles, it comes awfully early this year, after the fourth game. Last year the bye came after the Eagles ninth game.

3. No more than two consecutive road games at a time. In 2022 the Eagles played three consecutive road games, winning at the NY Giants and Chicago and then losing at Dallas. Last year the Eagles played no more than two in a row, just like this season.

4. For the first time ever, the Eagles, or any NFL team for that matter will play in Brazil. The Eagles kick off their season on a Friday night (Sept. 6) in San Palo, Brazil against the Green Bay Packers. This is not a popular move with many Eagles fans since the NFL has taken one of the Eagles’ home games away to play this game.

5. Lack of early home games. Not counting the Brazil game, where the Eagle are the home team, they will play only two real home games in the first two months of the season. They host the Atlanta Falcons Sept. 16 in a Monday night game and meet the visiting Cleveland Browns on Sunday Oct. 13.

6. The toughest part – A six-game stretch from Oct. 27 through Dec. 1 when the Eagles visit Cincinnati, host Jacksonville, travel to Dallas, host Washington (who despite the record, always seems to give the Eagles fits), travels to Los Angeles to face the Rams and then visit Baltimore on Dec. 1. Doesn’t quite compare to last year’s toughest six-game stretch – vs Dallas; at KANSAS City, vs. Buffalo and San Francisco and at Dallas and Seattle. The Eagles went 3-3 in that stretch, but lost the last three and were never the same after San Francisco came into Lincoln Financial Field and defeated the Eagles, 42-19. 

7. The Eagles are only an underdog in four of their 17 games, according to vegasinsider.com. They are +3 at Cincinnati, +2 at Dallas, +0.5 at the LA Rams and +4 the following week at Baltimore. 

8. The Eagles play eight games against teams that made the playoffs last year – Green Bay, Tampa Bay, Cleveland, Dallas (twice), LA Rams, Baltimore, Pittsburgh

9. Four of the final five games will be played at home.
