UPDATE (Oct. 8 at 2:07 PM)

We’ll hear more about fans potentially returning to the Linc next week.

The Steelers WILL be able to have fans for this week’s Eagles game.

ORIGINAL STORY BELOW.


Thanks to the no good coronavirus pandemic, the Philadelphia Eagles have had to play their first two games at Lincoln Financial Field without fans in the stands. Could that change moving forward? Here’s the latest update from Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf:

So, the Eagles are still waiting on clearance from the City of Philadelphia.

The Eagles’ next home game is 12 days away from the time of this writing. Here’s a look at their six remaining games at the Linc:

Week 6 - vs. Baltimore Ravens (Oct. 18, 1:00 PM ET, CBS)

Week 7 - vs. New York Giants (Oct. 22, 8:20 PM ET, FOX/NFL Network/Amazon) Thursday Night Football

Week 8 - vs. Dallas Cowboys (Nov. 1, 8:20 PM ET, NBC) Sunday Night Football

Week 12 - vs. Seattle Seahawks (Nov. 30, 8:15 PM ET, ESPN) Monday Night Football

Week 14 - vs. New Orleans Saints (Dec. 13, 4:25 PM ET, FOX)

Week 17 - vs. Washington Football Team (Jan. 3, 1:00 PM ET, FOX)

While it’s currently unclear when Philly fans will be allowed in the stands, the Eagles’ Week 5 opponent might have spectators sitting in the seats. The Pittsburgh Steelers are obviously also impacted by Governor Wolf’s announcement. We’ll see if their city gives clearance for fans to attend the game at Heinz Field.

Some NFL teams have been allowed to have limited fan attendance so far this season; our friends over at DraftKings Nation have been doing a good job of tracking it all.
