Week by week with dates and times – NBC Sports Philadelphia

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

Here’s a closer look at the full schedule below:

• Let’s start with the trip to Brazil. This 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 have to play an international home game once every eight years. It’s just part of the rotation. The Eagles will still have eight home games in 2024. Owner Jeffrey Lurie is proud to host the first-ever game in South America.

“We stepped up and thought about doing it in South America and Brazil, which is a really dynamic country,” Lowry said at NFL owners meetings this offseason. “And then we won’t do it as the rotation continues.”

• After that 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. This would probably be greatly appreciated. Apparently the MNF game will be on ESPN, which means Jason Kelce will be part of the pregame and halftime show.

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

• The Eagles have five prime-time games scheduled in 2023. They remain a big draw for national fans and get plenty of prime-time games. Since 2000, the Eagles have been second in the NFL in prime-time games:

Eagles: 105
Packing: 104
Steelers: 99
Patriots: 96
Giants: 96
Broncos: 92
Colts: 86
Bears: 85
Crows: 80

To put this 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 the 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:

R-6. Giants: .516
T-12. Cowboys: .505
R-16. Leaders: .502
T-21. Eagles: .491

Of course, using last year’s winning percentages is probably not the best way to measure strength of schedule. But based on projected win totals in 2024, the Eagles have an easier schedule, ranking 24th out of 32 teams, according to Sharp football.

• The Eagles have a bye in Week 5, which is too soon. They have 13 straight weeks of games after that. This is the Eagles’ first bye week since they had one in Week 4 of the 2016 season.

• Three straight division games to end the season against the Leaders, Cowboys and Giants. The Cowboys’ second game would likely go a long way to determining the winner of the NFC East.

• There are four tough games spanning Weeks 10 through 13. The Eagles are in Dallas, then return home to face the Leaders but then are on the road against the Rams and Ravens in back-to-back weeks. These are three of four games against some of the best teams the Eagles will face in 2024 and on the road.

• A nice part of the schedule is that after Week 12, the Eagles won’t need to get on a plane. Four of their last six games have been at home and the other two (Ravens and Commanders) are drivable.

• The Eagles rank eighth in the NFL this season in distance traveled, according to Bill Speros from booksies.com. Obviously a big part of that is the long trip to Brazil.

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