The Philadelphia Eagles officially confirmed that they won’t be allowed to have fan attendance for their remaining home games during the 2020 NFL season.
The City of Philadelphia announced new outdoor restrictions on Monday due to the ongoing health crisis and the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in the region. As a result, the Eagles will not be able to host fans at Lincoln Financial Field.— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) November 16, 2020
The Linc was closed to fans for the Eagles’ first two regular season games this year before being allowed to reopen in October. The Eagles had around 5,000 or so in the stands for home games against the Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, and Dallas Cowboys. They went 2-1 in that stretch but — as has mostly been the case this year — they weren’t particularly enjoyable to watch. Probably for the best that no fans are further subjected to such disappointment in person ... especially while also risking potential COVID-19 infection.
Here’s the Eagles’ remaining home schedule. Keep in mind they’ll actually host a wild card playoff game on January 9 or 10 if they can win the NFC East (sigh).
Week 12 - vs. Seattle Seahawks (Nov. 30, 8:15 PM ET) Monday Night Football
Week 14 - vs. New Orleans Saints (Dec. 13, 4:25 PM ET)
Week 17 - vs. Washington Football Team (Jan. 3, 1:00 PM ET)
