The stage is officially set for the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2023 season, as their full schedule was released on Thursday night.
— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) May 12, 2023
Beginning with a Week 1 visit to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots and finishing off with a Week 18 matchup against the divisional rival New York Giants, the Eagles will have their work cut out for them with the toughest strength of schedule in the entire NFL.
On the schedule is five primetime games, beginning as early as Week 2. For the second year in a row, Philadelphia will face the Minnesota Vikings at home in primetime, this time on Thursday Night Football, where they will hope to have a repeat of the 24-7 victory that set the tone for the eventual NFC champions.
Next will be a quick primetime turnaround as the team travels to Tampa for a Week 3 matchup against the Buccaneers on Monday Night Football.
Philadelphia will have two matchups on Sunday Night Football: Week 7 at home against the high-powered Miami Dolphins offense and Week 14 on the road against the rival Dallas Cowboys.
In what is sure to be one of the most watched matchups of the year, Philadelphia will look to avenge their Super Bowl LVII loss in Kansas City against Andy Reid and the Chiefs, set to be played in Week 11 on Monday Night Football.
The Eagles will end up facing all three of their 2022-23 playoff opponents. Following their dominating 31-7 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, the NFC runner ups head to Philadelphia in Week 12.
Another revenge game is on deck for Week 17, where former defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon returns to the Linc now as head coach for the Arizona Cardinals.
In addition to the previously announced Christmas Day matchup against the New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 16 and the final game of the regular season.
Other NFC East rivalry games include facing the Dallas Cowboys for the first time in Weeks 9 as well as the Washington Commanders in Weeks 4 and 8.
While the Eagles are used to playing 1 P.M. games as an east coast team, the upcoming NFL season gives the Birds 13 games at 4:05 p.m. or later, as the league will look to showcase one of the most exciting teams and defending NFC champions to as wide of an audience as possible.
