The Eagles have known for months who they will be playing this season.  Now they know when the games will take place.

The Birds will open the season against the Packers in Sao Paolo, Brazil on Friday, September 6th in the NFL’s first-ever game played in that country.

“When my baby, when my baby smiles at me I go to Rio… De Janeiro, my-oh-me-oh.”

Actually, it’s 265 miles from Sao Paolo to Rio, but the song has been stuck in my head since it was announced the Eagles would be playing in there.

“I go wild, and then I have do the Samba, and La Bamba. …”

Given the price of travel to Brazil, I’ll be going wild in my living room on September 6, but there are a few road trips – Tampa, Los Angeles, and New Orleans - that are all awesome cities - on the schedule that I might consider.

Here’s one way too early prediction as to how the regular season will play out. Barring injuries, the Eagles have the talent to make a strong playoff run.
