Eagles 2020 Schedule: Season opens in Washington, 4 Games in Primetime
In 2020, Philadelphia will face every team from each of the NFC West and AFC North. As usual, the Eagles will also take on the NFC East’s Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Washington Redskins, each once at home and once away.
Because Philadelphia finished first in its division, it will also play two other NFC teams that won their division. The Eagles face the NFC North’s Green Bay Packers at Lambeau and the NFC South’s New Orleans Saints at the Linc.
A pair of AFC foes, Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens, will also visit Philadelphia. Two NFC teams, Seattle and the LA Rams will make the trip east as well.
The Eagles will make trips to San Francisco to face the NFC champion 49ers, and will head to Arizona for the first time since 2014. They will head across the state to face the Pittsburgh Steelers, and also will be in Cleveland to face the Browns.
Philadelphia is scheduled to play at least four regular-season primetime games for the 14th consecutive season with a Thursday, Monday and two Sunday Night contests.

Flexible scheduling: “Flexible scheduling” will be used in Weeks 11-17. Additionally, in Weeks 5-10, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. In Weeks 5-16, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday 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.
In each of Weeks 15 and 16, up to three of five designated matchups will be played on Saturday with the remainder to be played on Sunday. Specific dates and start times for such designated Week 15 and Week 16 matchups will be determined and announced no later than four weeks prior to game day.
For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to January 3. 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 primetime.
Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday or Monday nights.
- Philadelphia is scheduled to play at least four regular-season primetime games for the 14th consecutive season. Since 2007, the Eagles have played in 61 combined regular-season primetime games, which is tied for the third-most by any NFL team in that span.
- Philadelphia will host the N.Y. Giants on Thursday Night Football in Week 7. The Eagles are one of two NFL teams with an undefeated TNF record (4-0) since 2016, joining Seattle.
- A national audience will once again be treated to an Eagles-Cowboys matchup in Week 8 on Sunday Night Football. With the exception of a nationally-televised 2014 Thanksgiving afternoon contest, the division rivals have squared off in primetime every season dating back to 2007.
- In Week 12, Philadelphia will welcome the Seahawks to Lincoln Financial Field on Monday Night Football. Since 2016, the Eagles have produced a 5-1 (.833) record on MNF, which marks the third-highest MNF winning percentage in the NFL during that stretch.
- For the second straight year, Philadelphia will play at least two straight division games to close the season as the Eagles travel to Dallas and then host Washington in Weeks 16-17.
