Coming off a trip to the Super Bowl last season, the Eagles now have the hardest-ranked schedule this upcoming season based on the oppositions winning percentage from last season.

The Birds play plenty of prime-time games this season, with only three 1 p.m. games on the slate. There are a lot of exciting matchups this season, and here are three of the most exciting games to look forward to.

3) Week 16: New York Giants at Eagles

The Eagles play the Giants twice every season, so what makes this game so special? Well, in this case, Hurts and Company have the chance to deliver Eagles fans everywhere one last Christmas gift. The Eagles and Giants will be one of three games on Christmas Day, with kickoff at 4:30 p.m. ET. A rematch of last season’s divisional-round matchup that resulted in an Eagles blowout win on their way to the NFC Championship.

The Giants haven’t given the Eagles any trouble recently, especially last season, but playing on Christmas Day gives Eagles fans another thing to look forward to on the holiday.

2) Week 13: San Francisco 49ers at Eagles

Does anything even have to be said about this one? A rematch of last season’s NFC Championship is the game all Eagles fans have circled on their schedule. The Eagles dominated San Francisco by a score of 31-7, and the Niners fan base has yet to stop crying about their loss. From the fans to the players and even the coach, the whole organization has whined and cried since their dismantling last January. Now they get to come back to Philly again. To say the fans will be fired up would be an understatement.

I’m sure the players also want to end the Niners’ talk and shut them up. This game would be less exciting if the Niners franchise and fan base didn’t complain and cry for the last four months, but the stage is set for a huge late-season matchup.

1) Week 11: Eagles at Kansas City Chiefs // Monday Night Football

Number one is the most obvious. A rematch of Super Bowl 57 on Monday Night Football, does it get much better than that? The Chiefs and Eagles will once again be two of the top teams in the NFL, and the fans get to watch Patrick Mahomes, and Jalen Hurts square off once again, a treat for everyone. The fans at Arrowhead will let the Eagles hear it, but the Birds have a chance at redemption in some capacity. Not to mention, it’s not out of the realm of possibility. This is also a preview of Super Bowl 58 as well.

Either way, this game is going to be the biggest on the schedule next season, and the fans and players are definitely going to have this one circled on their calendars.
