Eagles to play on the West Coast back-to-back

The Eagles will play on the West Coast on back-to-back weeks, traveling to Seattle to play the Seahawks on Sunday, Dec. 3 and then to Los Angeles to face the Rams on Sunday, Dec. 10, per a source with access to the 2017 NFL schedule.

The consecutive games will allow the Eagles to stay on the West Coast rather than have to travel across the country three times this coming season. They also will have a game at the Los Angeles Chargers, time and date to come.

The Eagles will likely practice somewhere in L.A. the week before the Rams game.

Doug Pederson confirmed in March at the NFL owners meetings that the Eagles had asked the league to make concessions for their three cross-country trips. The team hasn't played in Los Angeles since 1990, when it faced the Rams.

The Eagles are also scheduled to host the New York Giants on Sunday, Sept. 24 and travel to MetLife Stadium to face the Giants on Sunday, Dec. 17, according to a nj.com report.

The NFL will officially unveil the full league schedule at 8 tonight.
