The 2024 NFL schedule was officially released on Wednesday night, which means Philadelphia Eagles fans and the team got their first look at who they will be playing in the fall.

After a tumultuous end to the 2023 season, the Eagles have a somewhat favorable schedule for 2024. As we all know, Philly will open up the season in Sao Paulo, Brazil, to take on the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 6.

However, after that, the Eagles will have two road games within the first four weeks against the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers before having a Week 5 bye. After their Week 5 bye, Philadelphia will only play five teams who were in the playoffs last season.

That said, Philadelphia can’t take any team for granted this coming season, especially with how things played out in 2023. Eagles fans remember the losses to the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, and San Francisco 49ers and how debilitating they were.

Below, we’ll highlight a few losses on Philly’s schedule in 2024 that would be as catastrophic as the ones they had in 2023.

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Week 4)

If you put a Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ loss on the schedule in Week 4, it likely wouldn’t ring the alarm bells in Philly, especially if the team is 2-1 through three games. 

However, if the Eagles are 1-2 and lose to the Buccaneers, who smoked them in the playoffs last season it would not be a good look for head coach Nick Sirianni. Everybody remembers how defeated the Eagles looked towards the end of the regular season and how it carried into the playoffs against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Eagles beat Tampa Bay earlier in the 2023 season by 14 points (25-11) in primetime as they controlled both lines of scrimmage. Philadelphia couldn’t replicate that performance in the playoffs as the Buccaneers won 32-9.

For Eagles fans’ sake, they need the team to go down to Tampa and dominate on both sides of the ball heading into the bye week. However, if Philadelphia doesn’t do that and loses, to be 1-3 on the season, Sirianni’s seat will heat up going into the bye week.
