Here’s what we know. We’ll see how good this Eagles team is early on.
Right out the gate, Philly will be tested by a divisional opponent in Week 1. Then, in Week 2, the top two picks of 2016’s draft renew acquaintances. Carson Wentz and Jared Goff are set to meet for the first time since Wentz’s dreams of an MVP season died with a torn MCL and ACL in 2017.
This game also doubles as the first time the Eagles will see the Los Angeles Rams in Philly since they moved back to the West Coast from Saint Louis.
The Cincinnati Bengals visit Lincoln Financial Field in Week 3, and then, things really get interesting.
Philly’s first primetime game of 2020 goes down in the Bay Area as the “Birds” travel to Levi’s Stadium to meet the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers. Let’s hope the Niners are still feeling the effects of a possible “Super Bowl Hangover”, but as football fans, you’ve all seen the difficulty that some East Coast teams experience when they travel left on the map.
Oh, and it doesn’t end there. Another road game and tough test at home follow in consecutive weeks. Let’s discuss those in more detail.
