First Look: Best Eagles road trips in 2023, ranked
The Eagles road trips for 2023 have officially been confirmed by the NFL. While most opponents were already set before Week 18, they are locked in with the end of the regular season. Here, I’ll be ranking the best road trips for Eagles fans to go on from best to worst. I’ll be releasing an updated ranking once the schedule drops that will have some more specific parameters.
Eagles road trips for 2023 outside of the NFC East:
There are a few exciting prospective destinations on this list. The graphic does not include the Jets game, but who wants to read about that game anyway? Unfortunately, two games at MetLife stadium will definitely drag the overall season list down, but we’ll burn that bridge when we get to it.
Before we jump in, I know the prospect of organizing a trip can seem daunting. Fortunately, we here at The Liberty Line have partnered with Phans of Philly, the premier organizers of Eagles road trips.
Once the official schedule is released, be sure to check back with us at TLL and we’ll be sure to have a sweet deal for you. You may even catch us out and about on one of the Phans of Philly trips. They sent a few of us down to Arizona for the Cardinals game, and it was an incredible weekend. They even had Phillies watch parties for the Wild Card round:
They put together a smashing tailgate in the stadium district with an open bar at McFadden’s, which was included in the price of the trip. There were around 1,000 Eagles fans there, and even more inside the stadium. Phans of Philly helped engineer an insane Arizona takeover.
Now, let’s get into the ranking these Eagles road trips from best to worst.
1. Chiefs – Kansas City, MO – GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium
And there it is.
Kansas City is far and away my favorite spot on this list. It’s not guaranteed to warm and sunny like Tampa or LA, but it’s a football town with some bangin barbecue.
If you want to lounge by the pool at a nice resort and sip margaritas, you should’ve come to AZ with us last year. If you want to crush beers, eat meat, and take in one of the most iconic atmospheres in the NFL, KC is an obvious choice.
2. Buccaneers – Tampa Bay, FL – Raymond James Stadium
A bit more of a conventional destination on the list in that it won’t be freezing cold no matter when it’s scheduled. A city very few people know very much about, it seems like a great place for Eagles road trips. Despite the bit of rain during the playoffs last year, fans seemed to enjoy themselves.
Plus, according to a report compiled by our own BeercanBrain, Tampa Bay is made entirely out of strip clubs. That link also has them ranked, and is worth the read.
While I don’t think Phans of Philly will have a lap dance included in the travel package for this one, I do know that the other activities they’ll have put together will be well worth the.
3. Seahawks – Seattle, WA – Lumen Field
Despite the rain and gloom, Seattle is known as a great town to catch a football game. As Eagles fans, we find fanbases that can’t match our level of passion embarrassing. Seahawks fans do not fall in that category.
Again, no tanning by the beach here, but Seattle is a beautiful city with a lot of interesting things to do. Yeah, they might be a little weird out there, but they feel the same way about us. The way I see it, the hipster barista is more afraid of you than you are of them. Just don’t make any sudden movements.
4. Rams – Los Angeles, CA – SoFi Stadium
Ugh, fine. LA is in the four spot.
Eagles road trips are about a lot of things. Tailgating is one of them. SoFi stadium has come under fire recently for prohibiting tailgating at the CFP National Championship. We also heard from our friend Yasmin Quintana of The Game Day that this was in effect for an NFL game there is well.
5. Patriots – Foxborough, MA – Gillette Stadium
Genuinely who the hell would want to make this trip? If you’re someone that goes to every away game, be my guest; it’s not my money. But if you had to pull the trigger on just one, I know your ass ain’t going to Foxborough.
New England is a beautiful region, especially in the Fall. But I want a little more edge to my Eagles road trips than just drinking Sam Adams and leaf peeping.
6. Cowboys – Dallas, TX – Jerry World
I hate the Cowboys, but they are the most desirable destination for Eagles road trips inside the NFC East. Plus, you can see this monument to human greed and stupidity live and in-person!
T7. Jets – East Rutherford, NJ – MetLife Stadium
T7. Giants – East Rutherford, NJ – MetLife Stadium
9. Commanders – Hell – abandoned swampland
Merrill Reese is right. I’d rather die.
