Eagles-Giants season finale likely to be played in primetime

The Eagles season finale vs. Giants is trending towards being a Saturday or Sunday night primetime lock after the NFL flexes Dolphins-Chargers in Week 14

The Eagles (10-1) just defeated the Packers wearing their alternate black helmets for the first time this season, and they could repeat the recipe in Week 18.

Philadelphia and the New York Giants are scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. EST matchup at MetLife Stadium in Week 14 and that contest had the potential to be flexed into a late afternoon or primetime slot.

The NFL knows best and is saving the best for last after flexing the Chargers’ matchup against the Dolphins in Week 14 to Sunday night football.

The NFL Chose that matchup over the Kansas City Chiefs (8-2) and the Denver Broncos (3-7), moving away from MVP candidate Patrick Mahomes against the slumping Russell Wilson.

The NFL’s flexible scheduling is in effect from Weeks 11 to 18, and only Sunday afternoon games can be moved into Sunday night.

CBS and Fox have several games being protected, and the league has to announce any flexible schedule changes no later than 12 days prior to the game (Week 18 changes can be announced six days in advance).

With that Chargers-Dolphins move being finalized, expect Eagles vs. Giants in Week 18 at Lincoln Financial Field to get the Sunday Night Football treatment.

That will have playoff implications, and depending on how Eagles-Cowboys in Week 16 and Eagles-Saints in Week 17, the season finale against the Giants could impact the NFC East and the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC.

The contest could be played on Saturday or Sunday night depending on how the league views the matchups and playoff implications around the NFL.

The NFL loves rating and this formula serves best for a Week 18 bonanza.

Eagles to face Johnathan Abram in Week 12 after he’s claimed by the Packers

The Philadelphia Eagles will face the Green Bay Packers in Week 12, and they’ll have Johnathan Abram in the secondary after claiming him off waivers from the Raiders

The Eagles will host the Green Bay Packers in Week 12, where they’ll unveil the all-black helmet, and they’ll face former Raiders safety Johnathan Abram.

Released on Tuesday, the former first-round pick was claimed by the Packers on Wednesday afternoon.

A star out of Mississippi State, Abram has slipped on the depth chart behind Duron Harmon and rookie Trevon Moehrig-Woodard.

Abram had a career-high 116 total tackles with four passes defended and an interception during 14 appearances in 2021, but his play has slipped dramatically in 2022.

Abram has 48 total tackles and one pass defended through eight games this season, and as a fourth-year player, he’ll be subject to waivers rather than outright release.

In 168 snaps against the run this season, Abram has a 43.4 grade per PFF.

2022 NFL schedule: Game-by-game predictions for the Eagles after the bye

We’re predicting the outcome of the Philadelphia Eagles’ final 11 games after the Week 7 bye

The Eagles’ 2022 regular season NFL schedule was revealed back in May, and the team set out to improve on their 9-8 record from last season.

Philadelphia added Haason Reddick and Kyzir White during free agency and then, on draft night, swapped six picks for the chance to draft Jordan Davis and acquire wide receiver A.J. Brown from the Titans via a trade.

The schedule was considered favorable even though the Eagles entered the season facing four playoff teams from 2021, three from the NFC, along with the Titans, Cardinals, Cowboys, and Packers in high-profile matchups.

Last offseason, we predicted a 10-7 finish, and if not for Nick Sirianni benching his starters in the season finale, we would have prevailed.

We initially predicted a 12-5 finish to the regular season with a much-improved roster and star power on defense.

With Philadelphia undefeated heading into Week 8 and coming out of the bye, we are predicting the Eagles’ final 11 games of the 2022 NFL regular season.

Breaking down the Eagles remaining schedule after the bye week

Here’s a game-by-game breakdown of the Philadelphia Eagles remaining 11 games of the 2022 NFL regular season after the bye week

Philadelphia is hours away from returning to the NovaCare Complex to prepare for a Week 8 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The schedule is favorable even though the Eagles will face four playoff teams from 2021, three from the NFC, including remaining contests against the Titans, Giants, Cowboys, and Packers in high-profile matchups.

The divisional opponents are set, and Philadelphia will face off against the NFC North and the AFC South as part of the rotation of games down the stretch.

Here’s a preview of the Eagles’ remaining schedule.

7 key NFL games Eagles fans should watch during the bye week

The Chiefs vs. 49ers is among seven key NFL games that Philadelphia Eagles fans should watch during the Week 7 bye

The undefeated Eagles are off on Sunday, taking advantage of an early Week 7 bye that’ll allow the offensive line to regroup after suffering injuries over the past few weeks.

The Birds, Minnesota, Buffalo, and the Rams are also resting and preparing for the stretch run.

With Philadelphia not on the Week 7 schedule and the top team in the NFC, this week offers some intriguing conference matchups, a few AFC showdowns, and several games that could impact seeding as the 2022 postseason looms.
