Predicting the Eagles’ prime-time matchups ahead of 2023 NFL schedule release
Last season, the Eagles were an ascending team in the NFC despite being amid a retooling, and with potential comes respect from the league offices.
The Birds are stacked with an All-Pro at the quarterback, wide receiver, center, right tackle, and cornerback positions.
Philadelphia should be among the league leaders in primetime matchups this season, and after playing five-night games in 2022, the maximum of seven could be in reach.
Last season, 12 teams played games in primetime as the league looked to spread out its growing star power.
Depending on the Eagles’ record heading down the stretch in 2023, there could be room for two more flexed games at night.
With the schedule reveal a little over 48 hours away, we’re predicting primetime matchups for Philadelphia.

Donna Kelce has already leaked the Chiefs-Eagles rematch for Week 2 reportedly. If the schedule makers stick to the 2022 script, Philadelphia should get its rematch in front of a national television audience on Monday night.
CBS Sports could have a say, and the matchup could be a late afternoon doubleheader.
New York Giants -- Monday Night

The Giants were a playoff team in 2023. With the opponents being separated by the New Jersey Turnpike, ESPN could replay the 2022 scenario with Washington and have these teams matchup on Monday Night Football in a critical NFC East tilt.
New York Jets -- Sunday Night

This is another contest that CBS Sports could choose to televise.
Still, with Philadelphia heading to MetLife Stadium for this matchup, an intense AFC-NFC East showdown of the league’s top offense and a scary defense could make for must-see TV.

This matchup will be must-see TV regardless of what time it airs.
Javon Hargrave switched sides, Deebo Samuel can’t let the loss go, and the 49ers could be the biggest threat to a return trip to the Super Bowl.
Buffalo Bills -- Amazon Thursday Night

There’s star power on both sides of the football, and Bills Mafia making a night trip to Lincoln Financial Field could shatter broadcast records.
