Philadelphia Eagles 2017 regular season schedule begins in one month!

New, comments

It’s almost here, folks.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Lost in the attention surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles’ first preseason game tonight is the fact that the REAL games begin in exactly one month! How awesome is that?

The offseason is almost over. These four preseason games will breeze by pretty fast (except when we’re watching the backups in mop-up duty) and training camp will be ending soon. Final cuts will take place on Sept. 2 and then the NFL regular season opening game will kick off a few nights later on Thursday, Sept. 7.

The Eagles open their season with a game on the road against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Sept. 10 at 1:00 PM ET. Philadelphia hasn’t beat their NFC East rivals nearby the nation’s capital since 2014. It’s been way too long and I can’t help but believe the Eagles are going to be really hungry for a win.

This season has the potential to be fun. The Eagles improved this offseason. Carson Wentz is looking great in camp. There are some concerns (see: cornerback), yes, but they won’t matter a ton if Wentz turns out to be the real deal.

You have to go all the way back to the 2013 season to find the time the Eagles last made the playoffs. Philadelphia’s last post-season win? That was in January 2009. This year’s Eagles team isn’t a lock to make the playoffs, but they’re expected to be in the mix.

It all starts in one month.
