The NFL Draft is behind us. Another hurdle separating us from the 91st season of football in this proud franchise’s long and storied history has been conquered. The next stop in our offseason journey takes us to the doorstep of rookie minicamp and eventually the release of the Philadelphia Eagles 2023 schedule for the coming regular season.

We know who Philly will face. The four members of the AFC East and the four teams residing in the NFC West are on the slate. By virtue of their Super Bowl appearance, the Birds will also face the AFC’s representative in football’s biggest game last season, the Kansas City Chiefs. That one’s at Arrowhead Stadium.

It’s hard not to be excited, but there’s still much to accomplish during the offseason. Perhaps that means we must pace ourselves and be patient. That’s going to be a tough ask, but we promise to do our best. While we wait, here’s another look at Philly’s opponents, both home and away, during the 2023 NFL season.

Eagles 2023 home opponents

  • Dallas Cowboys
  • New York Giants
  • Washington Commanders
  • Buffalo Bills
  • Miami Dolphins
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • San Francisco 49ers
  • Minnesota Vikings

Eagles 2023 away opponents

  • Dallas Cowboys
  • New York Giants
  • Washington Commanders
  • New England Patriots
  • New York Jets
  • Los Angeles Rams
  • Seattle Seahawks
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Is it too early to predict a 13 or 14-win season? Who’s with us? Hey, sue us. We’re expecting big things.

Here’s what’s being whispered about the Eagles 2023 schedule as we approach the NFL’s official release date scheduled for later this month.

It’s funny how things change as we get older. Once upon a time, good journalism meant, once something was leaked or thrown out for the public’s consumption, your job was to verify it. Then, you verify it again before you even think about mentioning it in a news piece. Well, it doesn’t quite work that way anymore.

These days, great journalism still encompasses the above plan, but to appease the general public, they want to be made aware of what the rumors are as well (as long as they’re from credible sources of course).

As long as you’re mature enough to understand that some things must be taken with a grain of salt, have at it. Hey, everybody’s looking for a little entertainment.

Bookmark this one. Keep those ears to the streets. Intriguing leaks worth paying attention to will be listed below. 

Guess what? There’s a Black Friday Game coming (if you haven’t heard already). In his most recent Football Morning In America write-up, Peter King hinted that he’s on board with a possible Eagles/Giants matchup

"I usually have a good feeling about some of the tentpole games. This year, I have no gut feeling about any of them, except maybe the Black Friday game. The first game ever on Friday afternoon after Thanksgiving is a very big deal for Amazon on the biggest shopping day of the year. I think the leader in the clubhouse for that game is Eagles-Giants. Absolutely not set in stone, though."

Wait! Does that mean, if the Eagles wear those all-black jerseys, that they’re back to wearing the midnight green helmets with them? Bummer… We were just getting used to the black helmets. Stay tuned. This one might grow legs.

While we’re on the subject, the Eagles have never lost to New York while wearing black.

Update: May 4th

This isn’t as much a schedule leak as it is an interesting story, but two Eagles games this season, their road bouts with the New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs, found their way onto the list of NFL.com’s best matchups of the season. Obviously, the game at Arrowhead Stadium versus the K.C. topped the list.

Update: May 9th

Monday opened with theories that the NFL’s schedule release, believed to have been on May 11th, would be delayed. One of the more notable came from NBC Sports’ Peter King. By the end of the day, a crisis had been averted as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the schedule will indeed be released on May 11th.

Update: May 9th (Eagles versus Chiefs in Week 2?)

Watch out Ian Rapoport! Watch your six Adam Schedter. We’d like to introduce you to Donna Kelce.

Update: May 10th International games and a Christmas Eve game announced

The international series has been announced. The Eagles won’t be playing overseas, and that’s fine with us. That would mean they’d lose a home game. A Cincinnati Bengals/Kansas City Chiefs New Year’s Eve game has also been announced.

The rumblings are beginning again though. It sounds like the Eagles were one of the leaders in the clubhouse for Amazon’s Black Friday game, but we can officially announce that will be a game featuring the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins. Philly will host the Giants on Christmas Day.


Update: May 10th We have an NFC Championship Game rematch

The Eagles and 49ers will meet on the first Sunday in December! Be there or be square.

Update: May 11th – Philly heads to Foxborough in Week 1?

There are rumblings that the Eagles may head to Foxborough in Week 1, on a night where the New England Patriots are set to honor Tom Brady.

Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer has also released a report stating the Eagles versus Chiefs tilt will occur on a Monday night in Week 11. Stay tuned.
