+game time subject to change due to flex scheduling
“Flexible scheduling” will again be used in Weeks 11-17. In Weeks 11-16, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time. A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game.
For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to December 29. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot.
Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all Sunday time slots in those weeks and gives “surprise” teams a chance to play their way into primetime. Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday or Monday nights.
Philadelphia will travel to Atlanta to face the Falcons on Sunday Night Football in Week 2, marking the fifth year in a row that the Eagles have played the Falcons, including the 2017 postseason contest. This year’s matchup will mark the third primetime game between the two clubs since the 2015 regular-season opener. In Week 3, the Eagles will host the Detroit Lions at Lincoln Financial Field for the first time since 2013. The last time these two teams faced off in
Philadelphia, the Eagles defeated the Lions 34-20 in a contest dubbed the “Snow Bowl.” During that contest, snowy conditions limited the two teams to just 21 total completions, but Philadelphia running back LeSean McCoy logged a career-high 217 rushing yards and two touchdowns to pace the Eagles offense.
The Eagles will travel to Green Bay in Week 4 to face the Packers on Thursday Night Football, marking the first time that Philadelphia has played at Lambeau Field on a Thursday night and just the third instance ever that Philadelphia has played in the historic stadium in a primetime contest.
Philadelphia will return to the site of Super Bowl LII when they travel to Minnesota in Week 6 to take on the Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium. The last time the Eagles played in Minnesota, Philadelphia capped off its 2017 Super Bowl run with a 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots to secure the first Lombardi Trophy in franchise history. In Week 11, the Eagles will face the Patriots for the first time since Super Bowl LII (excluding a 2018 preseason contest) and will play host to New England for the first time since 2011.
A national audience will once again be treated to an Eagles-Cowboys matchup in Week 7 on Sunday Night Football. With the exception of a nationally-televised 2014 Thanksgiving afternoon contest, the division rivals have squared off in primetime every season dating back to 2007. Also, of note, three of Philadelphia’s last four games at Dallas have been decided in overtime.
In Week 12, the Eagles will host the Seahawks on Sunday Night Football, marking the first primetime matchup between the two teams in Philadelphia since 2005. Philadelphia will close out the regular season with four-straight games against NFC East opponents: vs. NYG (Dec. 9), at Was. (Dec. 15), vs. Dal. (Dec. 22) and at NYG (Dec. 29). This will be the first time since 1988 that the Eagles have closed the regular season with four consecutive divisional games. That year, Philadelphia went 3-1 in its final four games, defeating the Phoenix Cardinals (twice) and the Dallas Cowboys, while suffering a 20-19 loss against the Washington Redskins. Philadelphia’s success in the final month of the season helped the Eagles finish with a 10-6 record and win the NFC East.
