With the Philadelphia Eagles’ schedule becoming official, it’s a great time to predict their game-by-game results.
This is usually pretty difficult to get right, but it’s nonetheless a good exercise to gauge what they might be capable of.

Without further ado, what can we expect from the Eagles in 2024?

Week 1: Sept. 6 vs. Green Bay Packers

This one should be a welcomed challenge for the Birds. While the Eagles should have the advantage in terms of sheer roster talent, the Packers aren’t a team to scoff at anymore. They are young, hungry, and a well-oiled machine from top to bottom. Quarterback Jordan Love and a revamped Green Bay running back room could give the Eagles some fits.

Regardless, this should still be a win for Philadelphia. Objectively, they are still the better team and made more significant roster improvements than Green Bay did during the offseason. In the international spotlight in Brazil, we’ll say the Birds clutch out an exciting affair and start the season off with a bang.

Record: 1-0

Week 2: Sept. 16 vs. Atlanta Falcons (MNF)

The Falcons finally got their Matt Ryan replacement at quarterback in Kirk Cousins, but they went just 7-10 last season. Their defense isn’t a particularly strong suit, which serves as a major advantage for Philadelphia.

The Eagles’ talent at virtually every position outweighs Atlanta’s, and this is also a home-opening, primetime matchup for the Birds. Football can be unpredictable sometimes, but this is a game that the Eagles have no business losing.

Record: 2-0

Week 3: Sept. 22 at New Orleans Saints

The Eagles have had their issues in the Superdome before, but this is not the Drew Brees Saints anymore. New Orleans has a few solid pieces on its team, but it is also led by Derek Carr, who has a relatively average roster and coaching staff around him.

While they did beat Philadelphia in 2022, Jalen Hurts was out with injury. If both teams are healthy, the Eagles should get a victory and keep their undefeated season alive.

Record: 3-0

Week 4: Sept. 29 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

This will be the third time in the past two seasons that the Eagles are visiting the Buccaneers, and it’ll be a chance for Philadelphia to get a little bit of revenge after their wildcard loss. Tampa Bay might have a decent team, but the Eagles have an elite team; there are levels to the NFL.

In 2024, the Buccaneers were lucky to catch Philadelphia at their absolute lowest. Now, with a better team, better coaching, and momentum in their direction, the Eagles should run away with this one; they have too many top-notch players not to.

Record: 4-0

Week 5: BYE

The infamous early-season bye week is sort of a stinger for the Eagles. They are pretty important for rest and whatnot, but that’s the hand that Philadelphia was dealt. It’s a big reason why getting the first seed in the NFC is so important; otherwise, they’ll have no rest for four months straight if they go on a Super Bowl run.

Week 6: Oct. 13 vs. Cleveland Browns

The Browns will be a pretty interesting team to monitor in 2024. Without Nick Chubb nor a true starting quarterback in 2023, they won 11 games. If Deshaun Watson can just be average, his team could be a tough unit to handle. If he is anything more, they could be an underdog for one of the best teams in the NFL.

While the Eagles can definitely win this game, we’ll say they lose a close one for their first defeat of the season.

Record: 4-1

Week 7: Oct. 20 at New York Giants

The Giants might be a better team in 2024 than they were in 2023 if they aren’t forced to start backup and third-string quarterbacks again, but they still aren’t anything resembling a good football team at this time.

They need more assets to even beat average clubs consistently, let alone elite ones like the Eagles. Rivalry games are usually somewhat close for the Birds no matter the foe, but they shouldn’t have any Sunday Scaries against the G-Men.

Record: 5-1

Week 8: Oct. 27 at Cincinnati Bengals

When healthy, the Bengals are a legitimately great team. The fact that they came close to making the postseason without Joe Burrow for a little while is pretty impressive. He was clearly not 100 percent through most of his campaign, and that sunk his team. He is truly one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL at full strength, and Cincinnati has a no-joke roster.

On the road, the Eagles battle but fall to a respectable club.

Record: 5-2

Week 9: Nov. 3 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (SNF)

Back in Philadelphia, the Eagles have a date with the Jaguars on Sunday Night Football. Jacksonville was a team that was supposed to take a leap in 2023, but they, ironically, took a step backward by losing five of their last six contests, just like the Eagles did. They didn’t take any massive strides in the offseason, as quarterback Trevor Lawrence lost a pretty solid receiving threat in Calvin Ridley.

Lawrence could take the next step to being a superstar quarterback and elevate the talent on the roster by himself, but nothing he did in 2023 suggests that he is at that level yet. The Eagles, clearly the better team, should win this one.

Record: 6-2

Week 10: Nov. 10 at Dallas Cowboys


The Eagles have certainly had their fits in Jerry World in the past, but it’s 2024 now. Erase everything you know about Philadelphia and its history with the Cowboys from your mind; this is a new team. When taking a step back, it’s pretty amazing how two of the biggest rivals in sports have been so evenly matched over the past few seasons. It’s anyone’s guess as to who wins this game with two elite offenses and skill players matching up with one another, but Philadelphia should have a slight edge.

Even though they haven’t won a game in Dallas since 2017, the Eagles are poised to end the losing streak once and for all.

This would be a clutch, season-defining win; it means everything.

Record: 7-2

Week 11: Nov. 14 vs. Washington Commanders (TNF)

The last time these two teams were playing primetime football, things didn’t work out so well for the Eagles. With that out of the way, the Commanders are still trying to figure out their identity. They just drafted their quarterback of the future in Jayden Daniels, and they really aren’t trying to win a Super Bowl in 2024.

They could be a sneaky-good team, but just not one the Eagles should be losing to. They’ll probably make it close, but talent rules in the NFL, and Philadelphia has a ton of it.

Record: 8-2

Week 12: Nov. 24 at Los Angeles Rams (SNF)

Aaron Donald’s retirement is going to be an obstacle for the Rams’ defense to overcome in 2024, but they’re a pretty fascinating team all the same. They made the playoffs when most didn’t expect them to due to winning five contests in 2022 and not exactly getting better in 2023 on paper, which says a lot about their culture and coaching.

Make no mistake: the Eagles should win this game, but that doesn’t mean they will. They get their stinker out of the way in Los Angeles.

Record: 8-3

Week 13: Dec. 1 at Baltimore Ravens

This will be another one of those season-defining games. The Eagles and Ravens are two of the best teams in the NFL, and Baltimore isn’t the easiest environment to play in. However, the best needs to win in all kinds of environments. If the Eagles fancy themselves as a Super Bowl team, they should have as good of a chance as the Ravens do to win this game.

On the road, we’ll say that the Eagles get an upset victory to avenge their primetime loss the week before. This is a “hear me out” type of pick, but the Birds also beat the Kansas City Chiefs on the road in 2023. Anything can happen between two great teams.

Record: 9-3

Week 14: Dec. 8 vs. Carolina Panthers

The Panthers probably shouldn’t be as dreadful as they were in 2023 in 2024, but they also won two football games and traded Brian Burns in the offseason.

They’re a rebuilding team that is just trying to see some progression out of quarterback Bryce Young. Even without the benefit of hindsight, this is a game that the Eagles should have their way in on both sides of the ball.

Record: 10-3

Week 15: Dec. 15 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers changed some things up at quarterback with a Russell Wilson and Justin Fields duo, but they are still a pretty mediocre football team. Just like it was in their 35-13 route of the Steelers in 2022, the Eagles’ star power should be able to overpower Pittsburgh and help the Birds match their 2023 win total of 11 with three contests to spare.

Record: 11-3

Week 16: Dec. 22 at Commanders

The Commanders probably should have beaten the Eagles in one or both of their games in 2023, given how close they were, but that’s all history.

This game could be one where all Washington has to gain is pride, given it’s pretty late in the season. They could make it close, but Philadelphia should come away with this one.

Record: 12-3

Week 17: Dec. 29 vs. Cowboys

The iconic Cowboys split is very real, but it’s also not a guarantee. We’ve already established that both of these teams are good, so most of the time, these games will be a coin flip. It’s not the best historical bet, but we’ll say that the Eagles finally end the drought and have a sweep of their rivals in Texas.

If they actually did so, it would say a lot about the growth the Birds have had from 2023 to 2024. They have to win these big games.

Record: 13-3

Week 18: Jan. 5 vs. Giants

If the Eagles really do end up with 13 wins by Week 18, there’s a good chance that they won’t have anything to play for by that time and clinch the top seed in the NFC. Assuming that’s the case, they get some extra rest for the postseason and put their backups on the field.

Yes, even the Giants should be able to beat backups almost every time. The Eagles may drop this one, but they have their eyes on the Super Bowl.

Record: 13-4

The Eagles are really capable of beating every team on their schedule. It’s always a pretty good position to be in where everyone as a collective doesn’t chalk a certain week up to a loss; that says a lot about where the Eagles are at.
In an albeit hopeful scenario, the Eagles will have a 13-4 record and a first-round bye week.
