Interesting notes - The Eagles will play at least 4 primetime games in the span on 8 weeks including 2 in 3 weeks.
The Eagles do not travel from weeks 2 thru 5.
The Giants will play 3 straight road games. The Chiefs play the NFC East 4 straight weeks.
There are no easy games between week 7 through 14 of this season. All tough road games, division games, or playoff teams from last year. The very toughest part of the season will be when the Eagles play 4 of 5 games on the road from week 10-14.
Other than the Giants, the Eagles play every game against a 2008 playoff team on the road. Tough.
It certainly seems like the second half of the season is tougher than the first, which for the Eagles is actually a good thing... Normally the team is at it's best in the second half.
