The NFL officially announced its 2022 schedule Thursday evening. Here's what the 17-game schedule Eagles will look like for the Eagles this season:
There are some interesting matchups for the Birds this season:
A few notes on the schedule
They start the season on the road against the Detroit Lions, where they will hope to repeat the 44-6 dominance that took place in Detroit last season. The Eagles lead the all-time series 17-16-2.
The Eagles have their home opener in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football. This is the first time Justin Jefferson will be at the Linc, which of course will be the main talking point for that week since the Eagles drafted Jalen Reagor over Jefferson. The Eagles will look to tie the all-time series, as the Vikings currently lead 15-14.
Doug Pederson makes his first return to Philly in Week 4 when the Jacksonville Jaguars come to town. He's expected to receive one of the loudest standing ovations in team history since he coached the Birds to their only Super Bowl win in franchise history. The all-time series between the Eagles and Jaguars is tied 3-3 -- the Jaguars won the first three meetings but the Eagles have won three in a row.
The Birds travel across the country for Week 5 when they face Arizona. The last time these two teams met was in 2020 and it was likely the only entertaining game from that season for the Birds. Even though they lost that game 33-26, it was a lot of back and forth action in that matchup. In the all-time series the Cardinals lead 60-56-5.
After their Week 7 Bye Week, they will be home when they face the Steelers. There have been 80 games between the cross-state rivals with the Eagles dominating the series 48-29-3. The Birds haven't loss a home game against the Steelers since 1965.
They will be at Houston in Week 9 on Thursday Night Football. The Texans are one of two franchise the Eagles have never lost a game against; they are 5-0 against Houston (and 12-0 against the New York Jets).
They will be at Colts in Week 11. With three straight victories against the Colts, the all-time series is tied at 10-10.
They come home to face the Packers in Week 12 on Sunday Night Football. The Packers have had the Eagles number of late, beating them in 6 of their last 8 matchups. 28-17 all-time series lead for Packers
They stay home against the Titans in Week 13. The Eagles lead the all-time series 7-5, but have struggled lately against the Oilers/Titans franchise (1-5 in last six meetings). AJ Brown will likely try to have a revenge game against his former team that refused to pay him big money.
They will be at Chicago in Week 15, which will likely be a cold game in the Windy City. The Bears have a 29-16-1 all-time series lead.
They host the New Orleans Saints on New Year's Day in Week 17, where plenty of people will be inebriated after watching the Mummers Day Parade earlier in the day. They are 2-0 against the Saints with Jalen Hurts under center; both games were arguably Hurts' best games as an Eagle. Eagles lead all-time series 19-15.
The Eagles will look to dominate Carson Wentz twice this season as he tries to find a home with the Washington Commanders. They will host the Commanders in Week 3 and face them on Monday Night Football in Week 10.
The Eagles have yet to sweep the Giants in the new decade, but they were able to sweep them six times in the 2010s. They'll attempt to do it in Weeks 14 (at NYG) and in the season finale Week 18 at home.
The Birds will host the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 before their bye on Sunday Night Football. That will be the 15th time the two teams face each other on SNF, the most in NFL history. They will be on the road for their Christmas Eve game against the Cowboys in Week 16, which could be the game which ultimately decides who wins the NFC East.
