Tracking Eagles’ 2019 schedule leaks before tonight’s announcement

The full 2019 NFL schedule won’t be announced until 8 o’clock tonight thanks to what the NFL has turned into a ridiculous primetime spectacle, but the leaks have begun. 

So we can already start filling in the blanks of the Eagles’ schedule. 

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Jeff McLane, the Eagles will open their schedule at home against Washington, before heading on the road to take on the Atlanta Falcons in a Sunday Night Football contest on NBC. According to the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta, the Jets will be in town for Week 5. According to TheAthletic’s Jeff Howe, the Patriots will be in town for a 4:25 p.m. kickoff in Week 11. Art Stapleton has the Giants' schedule too, so there's two more games. The first is a Week 14 MNF matchup at the Linc. According to PackersNews.com, the Packers will host the Eagles on Thursday Night Football in Week 4. 

And for a while, there has been a rumor the Eagles might be in Minnesota for Thanksgiving. That ain't happening. 

But here’s what we know from reports so far: 

Week 1 — vs. WAS on Sept. 8 at 1 p.m. 
Week 2 — at ATL on Sept. 15 at 8:20 p.m.
Week 4 — at GB on Sept. 26 at 8:20 p.m.
Week 5 — vs. NYJ 
Week 11 — vs. NE on Nov. 17 at 4:25 p.m.
Week 14 — vs. NYG on Dec. 9 at 8:15 p.m.
Week 17 — at NYG on Dec. 29 at 1 p.m.

Eagles DT Tim Jernigan fired up for 2019: 'I believe in Timmy'

Eagles DT Tim Jernigan fired up for 2019: 'I believe in Timmy'

Tim Jernigan has had a turbulent time since being part of the Eagles' Super Bowl victory two seasons ago. A mysterious offseason neck injury sidelined the defensive tackle for most of 2018. He was then released by the Eagles at the beginning of this offseason before being brought back at a significantly lower salary. The Eagles also added former Pro Bowl defensive tackle Malik Jackson as Jernigan sat on the free agent market.

Jernigan spoke to the media following the Eagles’ first day of OTAs on Tuesday. He had nothing but positive things to say about the addition of Jackson but was also outspoken about the confidence he has in himself for 2019.

“I believe in me, I believe in Timmy, straight up, I believe in Timmy” he said.

Jernigan seems determined to get back to the same productive form he showed during the Eagles' Super Bowl run.
