The Chip Kelly era will begin with a bang. A cool, crisp Monday night in Maryland will host the first game of Kelly’s reign. One week before the NFL Draft, the Eagles finally know where they’ll be September 9th.
At 8 P.M. Thursday, the NFL released its 2013 league schedule. The Eagles will open the season September 9th in Washington on ESPN’s Monday Night Football. This will be the first of three nationally televised games.
Key matchups include Andy Reid’s return to Philadelphia on Thursday Night Football. This week three game is the highlight of the Eagles’ first half. Another big game is the week 16 clash against the Chicago Bears. Philadelphia-Chicago has become a staple rivalry in the NFC, and the game could loom large for Wild Card implications.
In the end, a schedule is irrelevant, as the opponents have already been decided. Fans can now picture scenes of an Eagles win in Washington. Dream big fans, its only April.
