The spotlight will be on the defending Super Bowl champions, just as you would expect, during the 2018 season.

The Eagles will play five games in prime time in 2018, including the season opener on Thurs., Sept 6 (8:20 p.m.) against the Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field. That game will kick off the NFL season. The Eagles defeated the Falcons for their first playoff win last season.

There was speculation that the Eagles would open the season against the Vikings in a rematch of the NFC Championship Game. Instead the Eagles will host the Vikings on Sun., Oct. 7. Four days later, the Eagles will return to prime time when they visit the Giants in their first NFC East game.

Five of the Eagles’ six games against NFC opponents will take place after their bye week, which is Week 9. The bye comes one week after the Eagles square off with the Jaguars in London on Sun., Oct. 28 (9:30 a.m.).

The Eagles’ eight games after the bye include two games against the Cowboys, two against the Redskins and one against the Giants. Outside the division, the Eagles’ final eight games includes road games against the Saints (1 p.m.) and Rams (Sun, Dec. 16, 8:20 p.m.).  The Eagles will finish the regular season at Washington on Sun., Dec. 30.
