Strength of schedule for all 32 NFL teams: Eagles have one of the easiest slates in 2022

·5 min read

The Eagles have known for months who their opponents will be for this upcoming season and on Thursday night, the team officially released their 2022 NFL schedule.

The 2022 schedule offers some heavyweight matchups, with five teams that made the postseason in 2021, five primetime appearances, and a matchup with Philadelphia’s former No. 2 overall pick.

The Eagles have the NFC North and AFC South on the schedule as well, meaning Philadelphia’s rebuilt defense will face Aaron Rodgers, Kirk Cousins, Trevor Lawrence, Ryan Tannehill, and Matt Ryan.

The Eagles will play their six NFC East games along with the Cardinals, Saints, and Steelers in a must-see contest.

Philadelphia is looking to improve on their 9-8 record from 2021 and based on the strength of the schedule for 2022, anything less than 10-11 wins could be deemed a disappointment.

Where does the Eagles’ schedule rank in terms of difficulty when compared to the rest of the NFL?

Here’s a look at every team’s strength of schedule from easiest to hardest:
