Eagles schedule: Philadelphia's games against Packers, Seahawks protected from Sunday Night Football flex

New, comments

The Eagles likely won't be flex scheduled this season.

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Philadelphia Eagles will likely only be playing on Sunday Night Football just once more this 2014 NFL season. Schefter revealed that FOX has specifically protected two upcoming Eagles games from being flexed. The games include Philadelphia's Week 11 road contest against the Green Bay Packers and the Eagles home game against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14.

What this means is that the Eagles likely won't play on Sunday Night Football again except for their Week 15 match-up against the Dallas Cowboys which was already scheduled to be on NBC.

Last season, two Eagles games were flexed to Sunday Night Football. The first game was in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears, where Philadelphia won by a score of 54-11. The second game was in Week 7 when the Eagles and Cowboys faced off for the NFC East crown in Dallas. Philadelphia secured the division with a 24-22 win.

The only remaining Eagles game that seems like it might be flexed is the Week 17 contest against the New York Giants. Given the way the Giants have played recently, however, it doesn't seem likely the G-men will be fighting with the Eagles for the NFC East lead at that point.

Here's what the Eagles remaining schedule looks like as it currently stands.

Week 8 - @ Arizona Cardinals (Oct. 26, 4:05 PM, Fox)

Week 9 - @ Houston Texans (Nov. 2, 1:00 PM, Fox)
