The NFL’s preseason schedule for national games was set and announced on Wednesday, with the Browns and Jets kicking things off in the Hall of Fame game from Canton, Ohio.
Philadelphia will face three AFC foes during the summer.
Here’s the complete preseason schedule, week by week, below:
We’re looking at five reasons why the Philadelphia Eagles defense under Sean Desai will be a top 10 unit in 2023.
After a thorough search for a new defensive coordinator, which included Michigan’s Jesse Minter, Georgia’s Glenn Schumann, and NFL assistants Vance Joseph, Chris Shula, and Vic Fangio, the Philadelphia Eagles landed with Sean Desai, a 39-year-old Fangio disciple.
Desai has strong ties to the Philadelphia area (Temple) and has built a strong reputation over his coaching career — most recently with the Chicago Bears (2021), where he served as defensive coordinator, and the Seattle Seahawks (2022), where he was associate head coach and defensive assistant.
He’ll lead an Eagles defense getting an overhaul after losing nine contributors in free agency while adding three Georgia defenders in the NFL draft.
Philadelphia had one of the NFL’s top defenses in 2022, and we’re looking at five reasons why they’ll have a top 10 unit in 2023.
We’re previewing the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver position ahead of training camp
The Eagles have made several roster moves that added depth to critical positions, but wide receiver was one under-the-radar spot that needed to be upgraded.
Philadelphia has one of the top pass-catching duos in the NFL with A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, but the depth behind the two superstars left much to be desired.
The Eagles then addressed the position in free agency, adding Olamide Zaccheaus to compete with Quez Watkins.
Howie Roseman then added two intriguing undrafted free agents in Joseph Ngata (Clemson) and Jadon Haselwood (Arkansas).
With the final OTA practice scheduled for Thursday, here’s an updated look at the wide receiver position ahead of training camp.
We’re previewing the Philadelphia Eagles running back position ahead of the teams 2023 training camp
The Eagles’ 2023 NFL offseason is almost complete, and as Howie Roseman retools a roster that’ll look entirely different on defense, we’re previewing the running back position.
Philadelphia signed former Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny to replace Miles Sanders, and the hope was that he could help decrease some of Hurts’ designed runs.
They added more explosiveness at the position, trading for former Lions running back D’Andre Swift.
With the first week of OTAs now complete, we’re following up on the quarterback’s preview by focusing on the ball carriers.
The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they’ll host a joint practice with the Indianapolis Colts ahead of the teams final preason game
Training camp for the Eagles is a little over one month away, but we already know about joint practice sessions with two AFC teams.
Zac Jackson of The Athletic had previously reported that the Eagles and Browns would hold joint training camp practices at the NovaCare Complex in the second week of training camp.
On Friday, Philadelphia announced they’d host Indianapolis for one Tuesday joint practice before the team’s preseason finale on Thursday, August 24.
Last summer, the Eagles traveled for joint practices with the Browns and the Miami Dolphins, and this summer, both scrimmages will be at the NovaCare Complex.
Nick Sirianni prefers the intense practices over the preseason games for his starters, and he’s conducted joint sessions twice a year since landing the job in 2021.

We’re previewing the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback position entering OTAs and the looming 2023 training camp
The Eagles 2023 NFL offseason is in full swing, and as Howie Roseman retools a roster that’ll look entirely different on defense, we’re previewing the quarterback position.
After two years of uncertainty, Jalen Hurts is the man in Philadelphia and the NFC after leading the franchise to its second Super Bowl appearance in the past five years.
An All-Pro and MVP Runner up, Hurts helped reset the market after signing a massive contract extension.
With the bulk of the offseason now complete and OTAs looming, we’re kicking off our Eagles 2023 training camp preview series by checking in on the quarterbacks.
We’re looking at one player to watch at each position group during the Philadelphia Eagles six OTA sessions
After a busy offseason of retooling the roster, the Eagles’ organized team activities will begin on Tuesday, May 30.
Philadelphia’s OTAs will be held May 30, June 1-2, June 5-6, and June 8 before the team breaks until the start of training camp.
While the team prepares to return to the field with the entire roster and the coaching staff, we preview one player to watch at each position group.
We’re projecting the Philadelphia Eagles projected defensive depth chart ahead of the 2023 OTA sessions
We predicted that the Eagles would look much different when the team reconvenes at the NovaCare Complex for the 2023 off-season program.
Philadelphia lost ten free agents, retained five of their own, and added three free agents from other teams during the first wave of signings and agreements.
The organization then committed five years and $255 million to All-Pro quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Defensive coordinator Sean Deseai is a Vic Fangio disciple like Jonathan Gannon before him.
For the Eagles, that means a 3-4 base, lots of zone coverage, two-high safety looks, coverage on the backend geared to prevent big plays, and producing sacks without blitzing.
With the draft now complete and rookie minicamps approaching, here’s an updated look at Philadelphia’s projected defensive depth chart.
We’re ranking the Philadelphia Eagles 2023 rookie class by potential impact this season
We’re about seven days from the start of OTAs, and it’ll offer 17 rookies the opportunity to compete for a limited number of starting opportunities and roster spots.
The Eagles came away with seven talented players after the 2023 NFL draft, in which the team received glowing grades from experts and analysts.
Philadelphia landed five total defenders and four real players in the trenches, landing Tyler Steen from Alabama in the third round.
The Eagles also added plenty of undrafted talent.
Howie Roseman has raved about previous UDFA classes, with several big-named stars holding second-day draft grades.
Philadelphia then officially welcomed 9 undrafted rookies ahead of the minicamp.
With the young guys fully entrenched into the offseason workout program, here is an early ranking of the rookies by potential impact.
We’re updating our Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster projection ahead of the looming OTA sessions
Philadelphia did a solid job of retooling its roster after losing ten critical contributors during free agency.
Howie Roseman pivoted in free agency, focusing on replacing some of his lost starters via compensatory picks in 2024.
He also used the first wave of free agency and the draft to add a replacement for just about every player that departed.
Throw in Nakobe Dean, Jordan Davis, and Cam Jurgens, and Philadelphia is stacked with depth at every key position that suffered attrition.
The Eagles have almost 90 players on the offseason roster after adding seven draft picks, and nine undrafted free agents.
With Phase Three of offseason workouts set to end and OTAs set to begin, here’s an updated 53-man roster prediction.
