IT’S HERE!

Philadelphia Eagles football is BACK for the 2020 NFL season and will kick off with an opening matchup against the Washington Football Team.

Washington could be in a better situation in terms of preparing for this game than the Eagles with several years of film on Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz. The Football Team, however, has a new coaching staff, a relatively new quarterback — second year passer Dwayne Haskins will get the start — and many other new faces.

We didn’t have a preseason this year, and significantly less on-field time this offseason, so it’ll be interesting to see a much younger Eagles group compete against a virtually unknown Washington squad.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
