It's almost here. The Philadelphia Eagles regular season kicks off on Sunday as the travel to Cleveland to face off with the Browns. It's a huge game for the Eagles, even though they are facing a team they are expected to easily beat on the road. The Eagles have a brutal first half of the schedule, including games against the Ravens, Steelers, Giants, Lions and Falcons.
This is a game the Eagles have to win because it gets a lot tougher from here on out. When you get handed a winnable game like this one to start the season off, you have to take advantage of it. The Eagles have the Ravens next week and the Giants in Week 4. A 1-3 start is very realistic if the Eagles drop Sunday's contest against the Browns.
The Eagles are easily the more talented team. It will be just a matter of execution and discipline. Here are the five biggest keys for Philadelphia to start the season off on the right foot.
