The Eagles got very lucky will their schedule. The Eagles have to face many talented teams this year, but for the most part, they are spaced out. They also have a reasonable bye week. There won’t be any month-long road trips that the Eagles will have to face as well. They have three two-game road trips and one is coming after their bye week.
Their toughest stretch will be from Week 12 to week 16, playing home against the Seahawks and Saints, while having to play at Green Bay, Arizona, and Dallas. The Eagles play their best however down the stretch and that’s when it really matters the most. They need to have a good start to the season to help with the tough second half of their schedule.
If the Eagles can do that, I think they will be in good shape. One important thing to note is that the Eagles don’t play anyone coming off a bye week this year.
As long as the team can stay reasonably healthy, unlike the past two years, I can see the Eagles having a record of 9-7 to 12-4. It’s always a tough task to win the NFC East, as there hasn’t been a repeat winner since 2004. Per usual, week 16 in Dallas will be huge. Normally the Eagles play in Dallas in their first matchup and then Philly later on, but this year it switched. For their first matchup in Philly however, the Eagles will be well-rested playing on Thursday night the week before. With one of the best Coach/QB duos in the NFL with Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz and a speedy new receiving core, the Eagles should have no problem scoring points.
There are too many weapons on this offense to not be successful. We said this last year, but this year is different, the Eagles actually have depth at almost all positions. Despite losing Malcolm Jenkins, the Eagles defense only got better with the two huge additions of cornerback Darius Slay and defensive tackle Javon Hargrave. There is no reason to not believe that this team can’t be in a prime position for a playoff run.
