Eagles Announce 2013 Schedule

The Philadelphia Eagles open their 2013 regular season with a nationally televised Monday Night Football game against quarterback Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins on September 9 at FedEx Field, the first of two nationally televised games in the opening three weeks of the Eagles' season. The game is part of an ESPN doubleheader and kicks off at 7:10 p.m. It is just the second time in history that the Eagles have kicked off the regular season on Monday Night Football.

Following the road opener, Philadelphia plays the San Diego Chargers at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, September 15, and then hosts the Kansas City Chiefs and head coach Andy Reid in a Thursday Night broadcast on September 19. The game will be televised on the NFL Network at 8:25 p.m. The schedule also features three consecutive road games at Denver (Sunday, September 29), New York Giants (Sunday, October 6) and Tampa Bay (Sunday, October 13).

Philadelphia has five games in the critical month of December as the Eagles come off of their Week 12 bye with a Sunday, December 1 game at Lincoln Financial Field against Arizona, followed by another home contest against the Detroit Lions. The Eagles then travel to Minnesota to play the Vikings on Sunday, December 15 before concluding the regular season home schedule against Chicago on Sunday, December 22. A trip to Cowboys Stadium ends the regular season as the Eagles play at the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, December 29.
