The 2021 Eagles schedule was released on Wednesday night.
The Eagles will open the season on the road at Atlanta. Other highlights include home matchups with the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs. With questions all over the roster including QB Jalen Hurts, it is a mystery how this season will turn out. Luckily, the Eagles have a last-place schedule and one of the easiest schedules in the league.
Here are my very early game by game predictions for the 2021 season:
Week 1 - @ Atlanta - W (1-0)
The Eagles start the season in Atlanta, which will mark Nick Sirianni's head coaching debut. This will be a tough matchup on the road but a healthy and revamped Eagles offense will be fun to watch against a poor Atlanta defense.
Week 2 - San Francisco - L (1-1)
The Eagles' home opener will be a rough matchup. The Eagles beat the 49ers last year on the road but expect a healthy 49ers roster to be much better this year and a contender in the NFC, with rookie QB Trey Lance possibly playing by week 2.
Week 3 - @ Dallas - L (1-2) *Monday Night Football
This will be an exciting matchup in the first of two primetime games for the Eagles. Dallas is the favorite to win the NFC East with a healthy Dak Prescott. Expect some growing pains on the road in Nick Sirianni's first game in this heated rivalry.
Week 4 - Kansas City - L (1-3)
The Eagles are back at home in this week 4 matchup with Andy Reid coming back to Philly for the first time since 2013.
Week 5 - @ Carolina - W (2-3)
Eagles pick up their second win of the season in Carolina against a weak Panther team and their new starting QB Sam Darnold.
Week 6 - Tampa Bay - L (2-4) *Thursday Night Football
The Eagles welcome Tom Brady and the defending Super Bowl Champion Buccaneers to Philly. Expect Tampa's offense with Brady and all his weapons to roll all over the Eagle's defense.
