The NFL announced the complete 2021 schedule on Wednesday, May 12, and the Philadelphia Eagles are officially set to kick off their 2021 season against the Atlanta Falcons September 12th at 1:00 p.m. ET. Their first divisional game will be in Week 3 on Monday Night Football, facing the Dallas Cowboys on the road at AT&T Stadium.
After making the playoffs in 2019, the Philadelphia Eagles had a train wreck 2020 season that saw them go 4-11-1. Doug Pederson was let go after being with the team for five years and QB Carson Wentz was traded to the Indianapolis Colts. To replace Pederson, the Eagles hired former Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni and will ultimately make Jalen Hurts the starting quarterback.
The Eagles did not make any major moves in the free agency. They brought back RB Jordan Howard and signed LB Eric Wilson to a one-year deal. In the 2021 NFL Draft, Philadelphia added another weapon to its arsenal with the selection of WR DeVonta Smith. That being said, the Eagles still have question marks at linebacker and cornerback. And no one knows how Hurts or this new coaching staff will perform this upcoming season.
All times listed are Eastern.
