The Eagles announced dates and times for their preseason schedule:

Friday, Aug. 8 at the Bears (8 p.m.)
Friday, Aug. 15 at the Patriots (7:30 p.m.)
Thursday, Aug. 21 vs. the Steelers (7:30 p.m.)
Thursday, Aug. 28 vs. the Jets (7 p.m.)


As Zach Berman pointed out, that means training camp can start on July 24, although no exact date for that has been announced.

The first two games - New England and Chicago - are on the road. The Eagles then return home for a pair of matchups at the Linc.

If you're wondering about the regular season schedule, Peter King of The MMQB has Tweeted that it sounds like it'll be announced later this month (between April 22 and April 30).

    That first game might be a good indicator of whose defense looks to be the most improved. Both teams hope to be much better on D than last year. Both had pretty awful stats. Yes, I know the Eagles improved somewhat as the 2013 season progressed.

      Preseason game…

        What are you talking about??? First preseason game is when we see all the different looks they’ll be throwing out there during the season. We’ll know exactly what our entire 53 man roster will be at that point as well!

        • Maggie

          Don’t know about all 53 but we’ll know a lot more than we do now.

      • Maggie

        Right, when teams attempt to find out what they’ve got.

      Are you Ashley Fox in disguise?

      • Maggie

        What?? Ashley Fox is usually negative, stating opinions as if they were facts. Kind of like some people who post here. ;~) If you read my post, you would perhaps notice that I used the words “hope” and “might”. You could also consider taking a look at both teams’ defensive stats for 2013.

    That last game is on my birthday. I think I’ll try to get my dad to get some tickets.

    Wish I could be here to see this season but I leave for Army Basic Training in July. I will miss all season, but its for a great cause.

      Good luck to you and thanks in advance for your service.

      All the best to you.
