The Eagles‘ 2017 schedule is out. With that, let’s dive into a full breakdown of each matchup, including a two-week West Coast trip and multiple primetime starts.

Week 1
Eagles at Redskins
1 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 10
FedExField

The Eagles have lost their last three games in Washington going back to a 33-27 win in 2013 and will be trying to avoid their first four-game losing streak ever in Landover, Maryland, and first at Washington since 1981 through 1984 at RFK Stadium. Before the current three-game losing streak, the Eagles won 11 of their previous 14 games at Washington. The Eagles also opened in Washington in 1986 and 1987 (losses) as well as 1996 and 2013 (wins). The Redskins lead the overall series 86-74-6 and have won the last five meetings overall. A win would give the Redskins a six-game winning streak over the Eagles, which would be their longest since a six-game streak from 1981 through 1984 and match the longest since a seven-game streak from 1971 through 1974.

Week 2
Eagles at Chiefs
1 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 17
Arrowhead Stadium

The Eagles travel to Kansas City for the first time in 12 years. The Chiefs are 23-9 at home since Andy Reid took over in 2013. Last time the Eagles played at Arrowhead, they came back from a 24-6 second-quarter deficit to win 37-31. T.O. had 171 receiving yards in that game, and Todd France kicked three field goals with David Akers injured. The Eagles are 4-3 all-time vs. the Chiefs and 3-1 in K.C.

Week 3
Giants at Eagles
1 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 24
Lincoln Financial Field

The Eagles look for their fourth straight home win over the Giants, something they haven’t done since a five-game home winning streak from 1976 through 1980. The Eagles have won three straight at the Linc over their division rivals by an average of 17 points. Overall, the Eagles are 45-38-1 at home against the Giants and 9-6 at the Linc. ¬†Overall, the Eagles have won five of the last six meetings with the Giants, and they’re 14-4 in the last 18 matchups.

Week 4
Eagles at Chargers
4:05 p.m., Oct. 1
StubHub Center

The Eagles make their first visit to Carson, Calif., to face the Chargers in their temporary home at the StubHub Center. The Eagles are 4-7 all-time vs. the Chargers and 1-5 on the road, with the only win coming in San Diego in 1974 when they picked off Dan Fouts four times, two of them by Bill Bergey.
