The Philadelphia Eagles will meet the AFC North for four games in 2020.
For the Philadelphia Eagles fan, the dominating football thoughts have been beating the Dallas Cowboys, the Washington Redskins, and the New York Giants as well as just how much they should be threatened by what’s expected to be some of the other NFC heavyweights (and whether they can beat those teams in a playoff game). Names like the New Orleans Saints, the Seattle Seahawks, and the San Francisco 49ers come to mind.
Interestingly enough, the Eagles have dates with all six of those teams during the 2020 regular season. They’re also scheduled for four games versus the AFC North, four teams they’ll only see every four years unless they, somehow, they meet them in football’s biggest game.
None of these games may seem like a Super Bowl preview at the current moment, but with the way the NFL works, one can never tell. There are always a few surprises and a team or two that seem to pop up out of nowhere. Here’s a quick power ranking of the AFC North’s four teams as we approach training camp along with a few immediate thoughts. Let’s do some work.
