News and thoughts about the 2021 Eagles schedule: The Philadelphia Eagles will host the Super Bowl LV Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football in Week 6. The Eagles, along with the Seahawks, are one of just two teams with an unbeaten record on Thursday Night Football (5-0) since 2016. They're also the only two remaining undefeated teams. The other team is the Saints, who beat the 49ers 26-24 in South Dakota last night.
With their victory over the Redskins yesterday, the Eagles improved to 5-0 for the first time since 2010 when they began the season with a perfect 4-0 record. That's the most successful start through four games in franchise history. Since 1999, only the New England Patriots (2010) have had a better regular season than the Eagles (5-0).
The last time the Eagles went into Week 6 of a season without a loss was in 2000, when they finished 13-3 and won the National Championship. In that season, they defeated Tampa Bay 24-14 in the NFC Championship Game before going on to face New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV.
In 2001, the Eagles lost their first game of the season before finishing with a 10-6 record. Last year, they started 6-0 before losing three straight games to close out the season. This year's team has been even better so far, starting off with a perfect 4-0 record.
According to Breer, the NFC East will play the AFC East for the 17th time this season. As a result, the Eagles' 17th game in 2020 will be against the New York Jets. The two teams are scheduled to meet on December 19 at Lincoln Financial Field.
The NFL announced its annual divisional playoffs bracket on Thursday. The No. 3 seed Eagles will face off with the No. 6 seed Cowboys in Philadelphia on January 15. It'll be the first playoff game in Philly since 2018 when the Eagles lost to the Saints 26-23 in overtime.
The winner of that game will travel to New York to take on the top-seeded Giants in the NFC Championship Game on January 22. That'll be one week from today. The game will be played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey and will be televised by NBC.
Both the Eagles and Giants missed out on the postseason last year for the first time in nine years. This year's results were especially surprising for the Eagles who finished with an 8-8 record after losing quarterback Carson Wentz for the entire 2019 campaign. He was drafted second overall by the Rams back in 2010 and went on to win Rookie of the Year that same year.

The New Orleans Saints (10-2) play the Philadelphia Eagles (3-8-1) in Week 14 on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET. We examine the Saints-Eagles betting odds and lines, as well as give our NFL choices and predictions, below.
The game will be shown live on NBC. You can find all the latest news, videos, and more for this game at NBCSports.com/nfl.
It starts on Sunday at 4:25 p.m.
New Orleans is the home team for this game.
New Orleans has more experience playing football games than Philadelphia. The Saints have played 10 games while the Eagles have played only three. Additionally, there are more NFL stadiums located in America's Heartland than in Delaware - so it's safe to say that football fans in New Orleans are used to cold weather games like this one. Last but not least, the crowd will most likely be behind the Saints since they are ranked first in total offense (470.4 yards per game) and second in scoring (38 points per game).
According to our partner, PointsBet, the Eagles are not anticipated to be one of the seven NFC playoff teams in 2021, and they have +260 chances to make the playoffs. Only the Lions are projected to have a worse probability of making the playoffs in the NFC, but the Cowboys are the betting favorites to win the NFC East. In the Atlantic Division, both the Patriots and Ravens are expected to make the postseason.
The Eagles currently sit at 3-3 and are in third place in the NFC East. They're only 1/2 game behind the first-place Redskins and have a match up against them next week. They'll also play at Dallas and Chicago before closing out their season at home against Washington. With 13 games left to play, it's still possible for the Eagles to make the playoffs as long as they stay healthy. However, with no clear cut favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl LIV, it's hard to pick them out as a contender.
In 2016, the Eagles were able to beat top-seeded Atlanta in the first round of the playoffs after knocking off New England in the wild card round. They went on to lose to Seattle in the second round. The following year, they lost to New England in the opening round again before defeating Minnesota in the conference championship game. However, they fell short of defending their title when Oakland defeated them in the Super Bowl 52.
The Philadelphia Eagles are no longer in the running for a spot in the 2016 NFL playoffs. The Eagles have failed to qualify for the playoffs for the second year in a row. The Eagles won the division in Chip Kelly's first season as head coach in 2013, but missed the playoffs despite a 10-6 record last season. They fell short of making it back to the postseason after one season under Doug Pederson.
In 2015, the Eagles started 6-2 before losing nine of their next ten games on their way to finishing with an 8-8 record. In 2016, they began 3-0 before losing four of their next five games on their way to finishing with a 5-11 record. Despite both seasons ending with negative records, the Eagles were awarded a playoff spot due to tiebreakers. They will play against the Dallas Cowboys in Glendale, Arizona at University of Phoenix Stadium on January 13th at 4:35 PM EST on FOX.
Eagles fans should be happy with how the team performed in its first season under Doug Pederson. However, there is still room for improvement if they want to become a championship caliber team. The defense was ranked near the bottom of the league during most of the season and allowed more than 30 points twice. On the other hand, the offense finished with one of the best records in the league. QB Carson Wentz showed great potential during his rookie season and could be a future star quarterback.
Following a 23-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12, they failed to improve on their 9-7 record from the previous season...
