Philadelphia Eagles Schedule 2024: Takeaways, Predictions

PHILADELPHIA — The Eagles' 2024 schedule was released Wednesday along with the rest of the NFL slate.

Former great Saquon Barkley returns to the New York area on October 20 when the Eagles take on the G-Men at MetLife Stadium in what promises to be a spicy matchup. There could be more drama if these teams meet again in the regular season finale at Lincoln Financial Field with a playoff berth or postseason status on the line.

The Eagles received a Week 5 bye, which is never ideal. This will take a long time, from mid-October to the end of the season. The toughest part may be weeks 10 to 13 which will include road games against the Cowboys, Rams and Ravens. This is offset by friendlies at the close of the season, during which the Eagles play four of their last five at home.

greatest achievement

It's not the challenge of a season ago — when the Eagles' schedule was the toughest in football, according to ESPN Analytics — but the 2024 schedule certainly has some teeth. They face six teams that made the playoffs last season – the Ravens, Cowboys, Bucs, Browns, Rams and Packers – against whom they will open in Brazil. There are also some rivals on the field who could bounce back this season, including the Bengals, Jaguars and the Kirk Cousins-led Falcons. After a late-season slump, it is important for Philadelphia to get off to a strong start to generate some confidence as it navigates a slate with fewer contributions.

game of revenge

In Week 4, the Eagles returned to Tampa Bay, where their 2023 campaign came to an unceremonious end. The Bucs defeated Philly 32–9 in the wild-card round of the playoffs. By that point in the season the dysfunction had fully set in and was evident in the Eagles' weak and unconvincing performances on both sides of the ball which led to the team's sixth loss in seven games. There's no making up for a playoff loss in the regular season, but perhaps a win in Tampa Bay will serve as a marker that the Birds are back on track.

bold prediction

The two games against the Giants will be must-see TV. It has been an lopsided series recently, with the Eagles winning 13 of the last 16 games against New York. It has ended some of the greatest rivalries in football. But with Barkley relocating from New York to Philly, the juice is back. Every time he touches the ball both stadiums will electrify. Add to that the Giants' roster has improved overall and you have the potential for some spirited and competitive matchups between the division foes.
