While we are still waiting on word for when DeSean Jackson will return to Philadelphia or the Eagles will travel to Washington to face him, we now appear to know when and where four of the games on the Eagles schedule will take place. The Eagles will host the Giants on Sunday Night Football in week six, travel to Green Bay in week 11, and head to the Meadowlands to face the Giants again in week 17. Per Conor Orr of the New York Star-Ledger, the Eagles will face the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day, in Dallas.
Hearing the #Giants will be home to enjoy a thanksgiving game between Dallas and Philadelphia (at Dallas) this year.

While a gametime is yet to be confirmed, the Cowboys are “America’s team” (LOL) and tend to play their annual Thanksgiving game around dinner time, which should mean a 4:25 start time.
This will mark the first time that the Eagles play on Thanksgiving since 2008, when Donovan McNabb made a triumphant return from being benched, to help the Eagles scorch the Arizona Cardinals 48-20.
