*The first thing that jumps out is the early bye. The Eagles have been fortunate to have their bye weeks later in the season of late. No such luck this time around. That will make for a long stretch of football starting from early October on.
*Four road games in five weeks coming off that bye, though the miles won’t be too excessive thanks to trips to Washington and New York.
*Four prime-time games on the slate for Doug Pederson and the boys, including a Monday night tilt at home against the Packers.
*That Green Bay game is part of a (seemingly) challenging stretch that includes trips to Seattle and Cincinnati.
*Get the fixings ready, Kapadia. An early Birds 24/7 Thanksgiving at your joint.
* A Thursday draw on Christmas week. That’s the scheduling gods making amends for the back-to-back road Thanksgiving games over the last two seasons. We’ll take it.
*The Eagles will finish the season at home for the first time since 2011.
*For the first time in team history, the Eagles will host all three of its NFC East rivals in the final four weeks of the season.
