Philadelphia Eagles Face NFL's Ninth Toughest Schedule in 2010

Phil AndrewsCorrespondent IApril 20, 2010

I realize that the chase for Lord Stanley’s Cup is currently underway and that the Flyers have just grabbed a 3-1 stranglehold on their opening round series  against New Jersey.

I also understand the fightin Phils are trying to become the first team since the 1942-44 St. Louis Cardinals to win three straight National League Pennants.

No doubt exciting stuff if you are Philadelphia Sports Fan, but make no mistake about it, this is also a big week for Philadelphia Eagle fans.

In two nights, the birds venture into their 75th draft in league history holding five picks in the first three rounds and ten overall.  As a draft appetizer, the NFL tonight released the 2010 regular season schedule, which has Philadelphia’s schedule as the ninth toughest in the league.

Highlighting the 17-week season are of course the two games verses former Eagle QB Donovan McNabb and the Washington Redskins. The first matchup is Sunday, Oct. 3, a 4:15 start at Lincoln Financial Field.  The second go around against Donny Mac, a Monday Night affair, Nov. 15 at Washington.

Philadelphia will open the regular season Sept. 12 with a 4:15 p.m. kickoff against the Green Bay Packers at Lincoln Financial Field.   The Birds' bye will come Halloween weekend, and trust me: with five of Philadelphia’s  final seven games scheduled against the NFC East, that bye is strategically placed.

Home Games: Packers, Redskins, Falcons, Colts, Giants, Texans, Vikings & Cowboys.
Away Games: Lions, Jaguars, 49ers, Titans, Redskins, Bears, Cowboys & Giants.
