Eagles' 2019 NFL schedule includes 5 primetime games

Eagles' 2019 NFL schedule includes 5 primetime games

No, the Eagles aren’t playing on Thanksgiving this year. 

That was the hot rumor leading into the official schedule release day, but instead, the Eagles will face the Vikings in Minnesota on Oct. 13 in Week 6. 

That will be the Eagles’ first time back to U.S. Bank Stadium since winning Super Bowl LII to cap the 2017 season (see traveler's guide for road schedule). They will face their Super Bowl LII opponent, the Patriots, in Week 11. 

The full Eagles 2019 schedule includes five primetime games, tied with a bunch of teams for the most in the NFL. The Eagles’ schedule last season and in 2017 also included five primetime games. 

Here are their 2019 games in prime time: 

• Sept. 15 at Falcons (Sunday night)
• Sept. 26 at Packers (Thursday night)
• Oct. 20 at Cowboys (Sunday night)
• Nov. 24 vs. Seahawks (Sunday night)
• Dec. 9 vs. Giants (Monday night) 

Primetime games are nothing new for the Eagles. They have had more than just about any team in the league in recent years. 

The Eagles get a Week 10 bye week, which is pretty close to the middle of the season and gives the Eagles an extra week to prepare for the Patriots. The Eagles are home the week before their only Thursday night game in Green Bay. 

In October, the Eagles have three straight road games against the Vikings, Cowboys and Bills followed by three straight home games. That road trip starts a tough stretch in which they will play four out of six games against 2018 playoff teams in seven weeks. 

The Eagles will open their 2019 schedule against Washington at home on Sept. 8. That’s a 1 p.m. game against one of their division foes. That’s a very winnable game — they’ve beaten Washington in each of the last four matchups — to start off the 2019 season on the right foot. 

From there, the Eagles will travel to Atlanta for their first primetime game of the 2019 season. It’ll also be their first trip to Mercedes-Benz Stadium. 

The Eagles will play the Giants twice in the last four weeks of the season and will finish the 2019 regular season in North Jersey for a 1 p.m. kickoff. Their last four games are division games. 

Here’s the full schedule: 

Week 1 — vs. WAS on Sept. 8 at 1 p.m. 
*Week 2 — at ATL on Sept. 15 at 8:20 p.m.
Week 3 — vs. DET on Sept. 22 at 1 p.m.

Jon Runyan's former estate, with hefty price tag and insane bar, is for sale

Jon Runyan's former estate, with hefty price tag and insane bar, is for sale

If you’re in the market for a home with the most insane bar you’ve ever seen and have a cool $5 million budget, former Eagle Jon Runyan’s house could be the perfect fit.

Located in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, Runyan’s old digs are for sale and, according to listings on Zillow, are nearly eight-times more expensive than any of the other 70 homes on the market in Mount Laurel. 

Despite being a massive 14,000 square-foot property, this house only has five bedrooms, but you’ll see where all that square-footage is being taken up. The area set aside for entertaining is just ridiculous.

Runyan, an Eagle from 2000 to 2008 and a congressman thereafter, was not the most recent tenant. He sold the house in 2015, but the home is back on the market for an elevated price of $5.6 million (see listing). The beautiful white interior and custom designs are ever-present throughout the home, which sits at the back of a long driveway and grand gated entrance. The house boasts a master kitchen, ample closet space and an awesome master bath with custom tub.

The backyard, though, is the most incredible part. Forget the pool with a diving board, artsy palm trees and pavilion, the bar is something out of an expensive wedding. It’s ridiculous.

Wooden beams stretch throughout this rustic barn-themed entertainment area, which boasts a giant circular bar with a fireplace and two bathrooms. It looks like the bar area could host a 100-person wedding instead of being in the backyard of someone’s single family home.

It also looks like there are seven garages, so, there’s one for you to drive a new car for every day of the week.

Here’s a look at some photos of the inside and outside of this insane estate.

If you’re wondering, Runyan moved into a $1.3 million Moorestown home in 2015, but sold the home in March for $1.2 million.

Eagles fans will love this new play addition to 'Madden'

Eagles fans will love this new play addition to 'Madden'

Philadelphia fans have been running the Philly Special at weddings and in their living rooms for the better part of the past year and a half.

Now, they can officially run it in the Madden video game when it's released this summer.

We learned of this news today on the "The Eagle Eye in the Sky Podcast" in which EA Sports' Anthony White shared the exciting news.

"It's under the pistol formation," White said. "One play is the 'Philly Special' and the other play is called 'Fake Philly Special.'"

He added it'll remain "Philly" regardless of what team you're playing with.

"A couple of other teams ran it last year," he said. "I know the Dolphins ran it. I think the Falcons ran it. Do we call it the 'Dolphins Special' or the 'Cleveland Special?' We're actually just going to call it 'Philly.'"

Sadly, Nick Foles is no longer on the Eagles' roster so when you run the play with the Birds you may have to pray that Carson Wentz's hands are just as good.
