Per Eagles Media Relations...
The Philadelphia Eagles have announced their 2017 schedule, which features five prime-time matchups, including two Monday Night Football home games at Lincoln Financial Field, two Sunday Night Football contests on the road, and an away matchup on Thursday Night Football.
The Eagles open the 2017 slate on the road against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Sept. 10, marking the first time that the Eagles have opened the season against a division rival since 2013 (also at Washington) and just the third time that they have done so since the divisional reformatting in 2002.
Philadelphia will be back on the road in Week 2, as Head Coach Doug Pederson makes his return to Kansas City for a tilt against former Eagles head coach Andy Reid and the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium (Sunday, Sept. 17).
Lincoln Financial Field will welcome back Eagles fans and kick off the 2017 home schedule in Week 3, when the Eagles host the New York Giants on Sunday, Sept. 24 at 1:00 p.m.
In Week 4, the Birds will make their first cross-country flight of the season to face the Los Angeles Chargers (Sunday, Oct. 1), marking the first time that the Eagles have played in the Los Angeles metropolitan area since a 1990 contest against the L.A. Rams in Anaheim, California. Philadelphia returns home in Week 5, where they will play host to the Arizona Cardinals (Sunday, Oct. 8).
The Eagles will make their prime-time debut in Week 6 when they travel to Carolina to face the Panthers on Thursday Night Football (Oct. 12). That contest marks the first of two primetime games in a row for the Birds, as Philadelphia will host Washington at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 7 on Monday Night Football (Oct. 23).
The Week 7 contest against Washington kicks off a three-game homestand for the Eagles, as they will host the San Francisco 49ers in Week 8 (Sunday, Oct. 29) and the Denver Broncos in Week 9 (Sunday, Nov. 5) before heading into their Week 10 bye.
Following the bye, Philadelphia will head to Dallas in Week 11 to take on the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football (Nov. 19), marking the third-straight year and the fifth time since 2012 that the two rivals have played on Sunday night at AT&T Stadium.
Philadelphia returns home in Week 12 to play the Chicago Bears (Sunday, Nov. 26) before embarking on a three-game road stretch which features back-to-back West Coast contests at Seattle on Sunday Night Football (Dec. 3) and at the Los Angeles Rams (Sunday, Dec. 10).
The Eagles round out their road schedule in Week 15 against the New York Giants (Sunday, Dec. 17).
As they did in 2016, Philadelphia will close the 2017 regular season with back-to-back home games in Weeks 16 and 17. Eagles fans will be treated to a Monday Night Football matchup against the Oakland Raiders on Christmas (Monday, Dec. 25) and a New Year’s Eve contest against Dallas (Sunday, Dec. 31).
Other scheduling notes:
· The Eagles open the 2017 schedule with back-to-back road contests for just the 10th time in franchise history and for the first time since 2011. In December, the Eagles will play three straight road games for the first time since 2013 and for just the third time since 2006. In 2013, Philadelphia finished their three-game road stretch with a 2-1 record and in 2006 they swept all three divisional opponents to go 3-0.
· A national audience will be treated to yet another Eagles-Cowboys matchup in Week 11 on Sunday Night Football. With the exception of a nationally-televised 2014 Thanksgiving afternoon contest, the division rivals have squared off in prime time every season dating back to 2007.
· The Eagles last played a game in the Los Angeles metropolitan area in 1990 when they faced the L.A. Rams in Anaheim, California, and will return to the Los Angeles area in Week 4 to take on the Chargers. In Week 14, the Eagles will face the Rams in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, marking the first time that they have played a game at the Coliseum since they defeated the Los Angeles Raiders there in 1986. The last time that the Eagles and Rams squared off in the Coliseum was Sept. 25, 1977.
· Although the Arizona Cardinals left the NFC East in 2001, the Eagles will take on the Arizona Cardinals for the sixth time in the last seven seasons.
· The Eagles will host the Broncos at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 9 and currently own a 5-1 home record against Denver. Philadelphia won the lone matchup between the two teams at Lincoln Financial Field in 2009. The Eagles have not lost to the Broncos in Philadelphia since 1986.
· The Eagles and Raiders have never squared off in prime time and will do so for the first time when Philadelphia hosts Oakland on Monday Night Football in Week 16. The Eagles currently own a 4-2 advantage over the Raiders at home and are 1-0 against them at Lincoln Financial Field.
· Philadelphia will travel to Kansas City in Week 2 -- where they are 3-1 against the Chiefs -- for the first time since 2005. The Eagles have won three out of their last four games against the Chiefs, including two in a row at Arrowhead Stadium.

Flexible scheduling: “Flexible scheduling” will be used in Weeks 10-15 and 17. Additionally, in Weeks 5-9, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. In Weeks 5-15, the schedule lists the games tentatively set forSunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time. Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights. A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to December 31. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all Sunday time slots in those weeks and gives “surprise” teams a chance to play their way into prime time.
