Quick Reaction to The Eagles 2014 Schedule

Now that the regular season is over the Eagles opponents for next year have been finalized. It’s all solved in a couple of easy steps.

First, the league rotates division match-ups so that each team plays each other every four year. For example, this year we played the NFC North and the AFC West. Next year the Eagles will rotate to the NFC West (Seahawks, 49ers, Rams, Cardinals) and the AFC South (Texans, Jaguars, Titans, Colts).

Next, since they won first place in the division, they’ll play the other two first place NFC teams outside of the already scheduled Seahawks in the Packers and Panthers.

The final six games are of course division match-ups to bring it to 16 games.

As a final touch, the NFL releases the home games and away games (without dates and times) at the same time. Here’s how it looks for the Eagles:

Home:
Cowboys
Giants
Redskins
Rams
Seahawks
Jaguars
Titans
Panthers

Away:
Cowboys
Giants
Redskins
49ers
Cardinals
Texans
Colts
Packers

This will be a tough schedule for the birds considering they’ll play the best division in football in the NFC West in addition to the other division winners. I’m not going to get into guessing records or anything because it’s just nonsense at this point, but Chip’s going to have to stay on point if he’s going to make the playoffs again next year.

*Note: Now that the Texans just added Bill O’Brien the schedule just got a little tougher. Gonna be a great test for the franchise’s growth.
