Philadelphia Eagles won't have to travel too far in 2016

New, comments

Good news?

The Philadelphia Eagles have one of lighter travel schedules this upcoming 2016 NFL season. According to a study from CBS Sports, the Birds will travel a total of 11,186 miles. That figure ranks as the eighth shortest travel schedule overall. Here's the entire Eagles travel map, via Pro Football Reference. I added team logos to each destination to make things a little easier to visualize.

Will lesser travel distance help the Eagles win more games?

Travel distance isn't super meaningful or anything, but it's not necessarily insignificant, either. Then again, the Eagles finished 7-9 last season despite having the league's shortest travel schedule. Maybe they would have been even worse if it was longer.
