2021 Eagles schedule news and notes:
• Philadelphia will begin the 2021 season against Atlanta on the road at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Eagles last played the Falcons on kickoff weekend in 2018, when they opened the NFL's schedule with a home victory coming off their Super Bowl LII-winning campaign in 2017.
• A national audience will once again be treated to an Eagles-Cowboys matchup in Week 3 on Monday Night Football. With the exception of a nationally televised 2014 Thanksgiving afternoon contest, the division rivals have squared off in prime time every season dating back to 2007.
• Philadelphia will host the Super Bowl LV Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football in Week 6. The Eagles are one of only two teams with an undefeated record on Thursday Night Football (5-0) since 2016, joining the Seahawks.
• The Eagles' final flight of the season will happen in Week 10 when they travel to Denver. Philadelphia will then play four of its last seven games of the season at Lincoln Financial Field. Following their Week 14 bye, the Eagles will close the season with four consecutive games against NFC East opponents, three of which are in front of a home crowd.

Flexible scheduling will be used in Weeks 11-18. Additionally, in Weeks 5-10, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. In Weeks 5-17, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time.
For Week 18, two Saturday games and the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to January 9. The schedule does not list Saturday games or a Sunday night game in Week 18, but games with playoff implications will be moved to those time slots. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all Sunday time slots in those weeks and gives "surprise" teams a chance to play their way into prime time.
Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday or Monday nights.
