Now that the NFL has officially released its schedule for the 2012 season, it’s a good time to look at the key matchups the Philadelphia Eagles will face in its quest to rebound from a subpar 8-8 campaign in 2011.
In the National Football League, every game obviously has an extreme level of importance, especially considering each team only plays 16 of them. One contest can make or break a season. In fact, one play can easily be the difference in whether a team goes on to play in January or whether they spend that month watching the playoffs on TV.
The 2011 Eagles lost more than their fair share of games in the fourth quarter, and just a handful of plays kept the Eagles from finishing 10-6 or better. The 2012 Eagles bring back most of the talent from last year’s team. The key will be winning the following five games.
