Breaking Down the Philadelphia Eagles' 2013 Out-of-Conference Schedule

Chip Kelly, welcome to the NFL. As a special gift to you and your Philadelphia Eagles, you will begin the season with three games in 11 days.

This short period for the Eagles could be a blessing in disguise, an opportunity to win over the fanbase early in the season.

Or, it could turn ugly fast. Kelly and company would prefer the former in that situation.

In NFC matchups—and specifically NFC East battles—you know what you are going to get. All games will be hard-nosed and passionate, as these guys see each other more often than they do teams in the AFC.

This isn't to say games with the AFC West this season will be a walk in the park and toned down at all, but intra-league games have an inevitable higher level of bragging rights, and thus, more physicality in most cases.

I decided to break down the Eagles' 2013 out-of-conference schedule because these are teams the Eagles and fans rarely see and don't know much about.

And apparently a prominent former head coach of the Eagles is coming back to town.

Who knew?

Also, as a side note, I am going to stay away from mentioning the Eagles' 2012 season at all. From here on out, it is a new era and time to look forward.
