The Philadelphia Eagles head into 2022 with plenty of reasons for optimism. 

For one, a young team that had moved on from Carson Wentz last season and handed the reins to second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts overachieved, going 9-8 and reaching the playoffs as a wild-card team. 

They have an intriguing collection of young talent (Hurts, DeVonta Smith, A.J. Brown, Miles Sanders, Jordan Mailata, Landon Dickerson, Quez Watkins, Josh Sweat, Avonte Maddox) and more established veterans (Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson, Dallas Goedert, Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave, Haason Reddick, Darius Slay, Brandon Graham). 

The Eagles also bolstered their roster in the NFL draft, turning three first-round picks into the aforementioned Brown, defensive tackle Jordan Davis and the New Orleans Saints' 2023 first-rounder and 2024 second-rounder. The team also got a steal in the third round, selecting linebacker Nakobe Dean. 

The major question surrounding these Eagles is whether Hurts is the franchise guy going forward. He'll get the 2022 season, at least, to make his case. The team will be looking to build upon the promise it showed in Nick Sirianni's first season as head coach. 

Below, we'll take a look at the schedule Philadelphia will face in the process.

Full television schedule can be found on the team's official website.


The Eagles, at least on paper, have one of the friendlier schedules in the NFL this season, facing off against their NFC East rivals twice apiece, alongside the NFC North and AFC South. 

That means the Birds have 12 games against teams that missed the playoffs a season ago.

Granted, that doesn't mean all of those opponents will be easy matchups. The Colts and Saints each had winning records. The Vikings were 8-9 and have plenty of offensive firepower. The Washington Commanders have young talent and the Wentz factor will give those games added meaning. 

And NFC East games are always battles of attrition, no matter how good or bad the division may be. 

So, there are no guaranteed wins on the schedule. In theory, though, the Eagles should be favored in 2022 more often than they're the underdogs. 

Pivotal Matchups

The Giants look as though they'll be pretty bad yet again in 2022, but divisional matchups between the Eagles, Cowboys and Commanders will decide the NFC East. 

The Cowboys will be the favorites to repeat as divisional champions, fresh off a 12-5 campaign. But they haven't exactly had a banner offseason, losing players such as Amari Cooper, Randy Gregory, La'el Collins and Cedrick Wilson. 

The Commanders, meanwhile, will be hoping Wentz can get a talented young roster over the hump. It was a risky gambleโ€”the quarterback has missed the playoffs in two straight seasons with the Eagles (2020) and Colts (2021).

The man who replaced him in Philly, Hurts, got the Eagles to the postseason last year. And the man Wentz replaced in Indy, Philip Rivers, took the Colts to the playoffs in 2020. Suffice to say, neither of those organizations felt they were better off with Wentz under center. Washington is hoping it can be the recent exception. 

The Eagles had mixed results against the NFC East in 2021, going 3-3. They were 0-2 against the Cowboys, a mark that is never acceptable in Philadelphia when it comes to that particular rivalry. But they did go 2-0 against Washington. 

The Cowboys are the front-runners in the NFC East, but the Eagles and Commanders don't appear to be too far behind. These should be fun matchups this season.
