Here’s some bad news if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

Well, it was fun while it lasted. After three home games, one hard-fought loss to the Baltimore Ravens and two divisional wins over the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles fans were met with some of the worst news that they could be given on the Monday following a tough road loss to the G-Men in Week 10.

It appears that, as we saw in the early part of 2020’s regular season, Birds fans won’t be allowed at Lincoln Financial Field for home games for the foreseeable future. The news broke at about lunchtime on the East Coast right after the city of Philadelphia announced that it had imposed new outdoor restrictions on Monday. This on the heels of the spike in Coronavirus cases in the region.

Here’s a little more info on that, courtesy of the team’s official site:

"The Eagles worked over the last several months with government agencies, public health experts, and league officials to develop health and safety protocols for the 2020 season. As part of this work and preparation, the Eagles and Lincoln Financial Field achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation for implementing the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention in an effort to provide a safe experience at the stadium… As a result of Monday’s announcement, the Eagles will revert back to the setup for the two September home games… The team will continue to work with the City of Philadelphia and notify fans of any changes in the coming weeks."

Here’s what’s coming up if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles have three more home games scheduled for the remainder of the 2020 regular-season campaign. That includes one more game in November versus the Seattle Seahawks on the last day of this month, a December 13th tilt versus the New Orleans Saints, and a game that Birds fans are hoping is a revenge game, the second game of their annual two-game series versus the Washington Football Team. That one doubles as the season finale, and it’s scheduled for two days after New Year’s Day.

If you’re an Eagles fan, you have to hope that one is followed by a home playoff game in the NFC Playoffs. It’s possible. Philly’s win-loss total currently boasts three wins, five losses, and a tie. Their next test on what’s been a rough schedule is a road game versus the Cleveland Browns on November 22nd. This is the first time the Eagles defense will get a look at a Browns offense that’s being manned by Baker Mayfield.
