The NFL schedule follows a set pattern each year so we already have an idea of who the Eagles will play in future seasons.
Six of the Eagles’ sixteen opponents will always be their NFC East rivals: the Cowboys, Giants, and Redskins. The Eagles will also play the entirety of one of the NFC Divisions. The NFC North is in rotation for 2019, which means the Eagles will play against the Bears, Packers, Lions, and Vikings.
The remaining two games come against NFC teams that finish in the same spot in the divisional standings as the Eagles. Since the Eagles finished second in their division in 2018 they will play the Seahawks from the NFC West and the Falcons from the NFC South.
If the formulaic schedule doesn’t change, this is what the Eagles’ future opponents will look like:
2020: NFC West, AFC North, NFC North and South divisional finish, NFC East
2021: NFC South, AFC West, NFC North and West divisional finish, NFC East
2022: NFC North, AFC South, NFC South and West divisional finish, NFC East
