The NFL's 2024 schedule is out, and the Eagles will square off against six playoff teams from last year.

Why it matters: Birds fans are looking for redemption after last year's disappointing finish, when the team dropped six of their last seven games en route to an early playoff exit.

Put these matchups on your calendar:

Week 1: Eagles vs. Packers — in Brazil

The intrigue: The Eagles open the season in Sao Paulo in a tantalizing game that we're billing Love vs. Brotherly Love.

  • Emerging star quarterback Jordan Love led the upstart Packers over the hated Cowboys and almost knocked off the top-seeded 49ers in the NFC divisional round. He'll be gunning for Birdgang.

Fun fact: Counting the flight to Brazil, the Eagles will travel the eighth-most miles of any NFL team in 2024.

Week 4: Eagles at Buccaneers

The revenge game: The Bucs thumped a struggling Eagles team in the first round of the playoffs, mercifully ending a season that went off the tracks.

Week 10: Eagles at Cowboys; Week 17: Eagles vs. Cowboys

The division rivals play each other twice a year, and it's always fun no matter what.

  • The Eagles want to reclaim the NFC East crown this year after fumbling it away to the Cowboys last season.
  • Jalen Hurts and Dak Prescott, two of the league's best quarterbacks, will likely put up big numbers in games that we're all hoping come down to the last possession.

Week 13: Eagles at Ravens

Battle of MVPs (kinda): Hurts, MVP runner-up in 2022, vs. Lamar Jackson, the NFL's reigning MVP.

  • They're both ballers, but we know Eagles fans have "Big Truss" in our guy.
