The Eagles released their 2013 preseason schedule Thursday. While the exact dates still aren’t set, they’ll open the preseason with back-to-back home games against the New England Patriots August 8-11 and the Carolina Panthers August 15-19.
They’ll be on the road for their final two preseason games, traveling to Jacksonville to play the Jaguars August 22-25, and the Meadowlands on August 29 or 30 to face the Jets.
The NFL is expected to release the regular-season schedule in two weeks. The Eagles’ non-division home opponents this season are Chicago, Detroit, Arizona, Kansas City and San Diego. Their non-division road opponents are Denver, Green Bay, Minnesota, Oakland and Tampa Bay.
The way things have been going for the Eagles and the newspaper industry lately, expect those games against the Packers and Vikings both to be in December.
