Week-by-week with dates, times – NBC Sports Philadelphia

We’ve known for a while that the Eagles will open their season in São Paulo, Brazil, but we now know the rest of their 2024 schedule.

Here’s a closer look with the full schedule at the bottom:

• Let’s start with the trip to Brazil. It will be the first NFL game ever played in South America and the first Friday night game on opening weekend in more than 50 years.

Each NFL team will be required to play an international home game once every eight years. It’s just part of the rotation. The Eagles will play eight more home games in 2024. Owner Jeffrey Lurie is proud to host the first-ever game in South America.

“We decided to do it in South America and Brazil, a really dynamic country,” Lurie said at NFL owners meetings this offseason. “And then we won’t do that during the rotation.”

• After the long trip to Brazil in Week 1, the Eagles will get some extra time before hosting the Falcons on Monday Night Football in Week 2. It’s probably much appreciated. This MNF game will obviously be on ESPN, which means Jason Kelce will be part of the pregame and halftime show.

It will also be a prime-time home opener against Kirk Cousins ​​for the third straight season. The Eagles beat Cousins’ Vikings 24-7 in Week 2 of 2022 and beat the Vikings 34-28 in Week 2 of 2023.

• The Eagles have five scheduled primetime games in 2023. They continue to have a huge national following and receive a ton of primetime games. Since 2000, the Eagles have been second in the NFL in prime-time games:

Cowboys: 111
Eagles: 105
Packers: 104
Steelers: 99
Patriots: 96
Giants: 96
Broncos: 92
Foals: 86
Bear: 85
Crows: 80

To put that into perspective, the Lions have the fewest prime time games since 2000 with just 31.

• Based on 2023 win totals, the Eagles are tied for 21st toughest schedule in 2024. Their opponents had a combined winning percentage of .491 last season. Based on 2023 success, the Eagles have the easiest schedule among NFC East teams:

t-6. Giants: .516
t-12. Cowboys: .505
t-16. Commanders: .502
t-21. Eagles: .491

Of course, using last year’s winning percentages probably isn’t the best way to gauge the strength of the schedule. But based on projected win totals in 2024, the Eagles’ schedule is even simpler, ranking 24th out of 32 teams, according to Sharp Football.

• The Eagles have a bye into Week 5, which is very early. They then have 13 straight weeks of games. This is the Eagles’ first bye week since they had one in Week 4 of the 2016 season.

• Three straight divisional games to end the season against the Commanders, Cowboys and Giants. This second Cowboys game will likely go a long way in determining the winner of the NFC East.

• There’s a tough four-game stretch between Weeks 10 and 13. The Eagles are in Dallas, then come home to face the Commanders, but are then on the road against the Rams and Ravens in back-to-back weeks. That’s three out of four games against some of the best teams the Eagles will face in 2024 and on the road.

• An interesting aspect of the schedule is that after Week 12, the Eagles will no longer need to fly. Four of their last six games are at home and the other two (Ravens and Commanders) are flyable.

• The Eagles rank eighth in the NFL this season in mileage run, according to Bill Speros of A big part of that is obviously the long trip to Brazil.

In total, the Eagles will travel 22,756 miles:
