What a difference a month makes. Remember when the Philadelphia Eagles were 10-1 and had a stranglehold on the National Football Conference? How did we go from that to feeling like we feel now? Oh yeah, that's right! There was that collapse and those five losses in the span of six games. That will certainly take the wind out of a few sails.
Regardless of what happens in the Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs, two things are certain. First, professional football will be played in the City of Brotherly Love again next season, and second, it will happen in front of the most loyal fan base in sports.
There's one obvious question. Is current Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni the man for the job? There are the obvious concerns that he may have lost the team.
Has he earned an opportunity to right the ship in 2024? Opinions vary on that, we'll see what Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman determine to be true after this season. For now, let's take a quick second to discuss next season's opponents.
Here's a look at who the Eagles 2024 opponents will be.
As always, the Philadelphia Eagles will face their NFC East rivals in a pair of games, one on the road and one at home. That takes care of six of the games on the schedule. The other 11 are decided as follows:
Philly plays every member of one of the NFL's toughest and scrappiest divisions, the AFC North.
The Eagles and every member of the NFC East will face the members of the NFC South. As the second-place finisher in the NFC East, their final in-conference game will be played against the NFC North's second-place finisher, the Green Bay Packers.
The 17th game will be played at home versus another AFC team, Doug Pederson's Jacksonville Jaguars. This one gives Philly a ninth home game.
With that being said, we know who Philly will play. When they play will be determined later.
New York Giants. Dallas Cowboys. Washington Commanders, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons, Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers, Jacksonville Jaguars
Giants, Cowboys, Commanders, Baltimore Ravens, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cincinnati Bengals, Los Angeles Rams
That's a pretty healthy schedule. It could be tougher. It could be easier. The good news is we trust Howie Roseman to construct a roster that can tackle it.
