Notes about your PHILADELPHIA EAGLES for 2016 Schedule
|Saving the Best for Last: For the first time in franchise history, Philadelphia will host all three of its NFC East rivals in the final four weeks of the season. The Eagles will square off at Lincoln Financial Field against Washington in Week 14, the Giants in Week 16 and Dallas in Week 17.
Steeling Wins: Dating back to 1966 the Eagles are a perfect 8-0 at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Philadelphia last hosted the Steelers in 2008, a 15-6 victory in which Eagles QB Donovan McNabb completed his first 15 passing attempts – marking the most consecutive completions to start a game in franchise history – and the defense recorded nine total sacks, including eight takedowns of Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger.
8 is Great: Including the aforementioned 8-0 run against the Steelers at home, Philadelphia has put together impressive home records against two of its other 2016 home opponents. Including postseason, the Eagles have won eight of the last 10 home games against both the Minnesota Vikings and the Atlanta Falcons, who they will host in Week 7 and Week 10, respectively.
Got the Time?: Thanks to an away schedule that includes road contests at Baltimore, Cincinnati Detroit, and local NFC East foes the New York Giants and Washington Redskins, the Eagles will leave the Eastern Time Zone just three times over the course of the season. The Birds will play in the Central Time Zone twice (Week 2 at Chicago and Week 8 at Dallas) and in the Pacific Time Zone once (Week 11 at Seattle).
Monday Night Madness: For the third-straight season, the Eagles will be featured in two Monday Night Football matchups on ESPN. The Eagles kick off their primetime slate with a Week 2 contest at Chicago and make a second Monday night appearance in Week 12 when they host the Green Bay Packers.
Low Mileage: The Eagles face a friendly travel schedule for the second straight year and will travel just 11,272 miles to and from opponents’ cities over the course of the season, per travelmath.com. Although a Week 11 cross-country flight to Seattle serves as an outlier to skew the numbers (4,758 miles round trip), the other seven away games total just 6,514 miles. Last season, the Eagles traveled 6,820 miles with the longest trip being a Week 9 contest at Dallas (2,634 miles).
