Wallyhorse Posted January 30 Share Posted January 30 Here's what I think will be the 2023 Schedule: (NOTE: This schedule is revised to reflect Aaron Rodgers intending to play for the Jets as he announced Wednesday 3/15 on The Pat McAfee Show). Do note the Phillies are at home on Sunday 9/10, however, if the Eagles opened at home that day it would almost certainly be the Sunday Night game and it could be agreed to have the Phillies move up that game with the Marlins to a 12:05 PM start (or earlier if the MLBPA allowed or play a day-night doubleheader on Saturday 9/9) if that were the case. Phils are also home Sunday 9/24 against the Mets. This also allows for the possibility the Phillies could be hosting playoff games. Week 1: at Jets, Sun 9/10 at 8:20 PM on NBC (Aaron Rodgers's Jets debut). Week 2: vs. Vikings, Monday 9/18 at 8:30 PM ET on ABC (Week 2 has MNF games on both ESPN at 7:15 and ABC at 8:30). Week 3: at Giants, Sun 9/24 at 4:25 PM ET on FOX Week 4: vs, 49ers, Sun 10/1 at 8:20 PM ET on NBC Week 5: at Commanders, Sun 10/8 at 1:00 PM ET on FOX Week 6: at Bucs, Sun 10/15 at 1:00 PM ET on FOX Week 7: Bye Week 8: at Chiefs, Sun. 10/29 at 4:25 PM ET on FOX (full national game on FOX) Week 9: vs. Cardinals, Sun 11/5 at 1:00 PM ET on FOX Week 10: vs. Bills, Sun 11/12 at 4:25 PM ET on CBS Week 11: vs. Dolphins, Sun 11/19 at 1:00 PM ET on CBS Week 12: at Patriots, Thurs. 11/23 at 8:20 PM ET on NBC (Thanksgiving Night) Week 13: vs. Cowboys, Thurs. 11/30 at 8:15 PM ET on Amazon Prime Week 14: at Seahawks, Mon. 12/11 at 8:15 PM ET on ESPN/ABC Week 15: at Rams, Sun 12/10 at 4:05 PM ET on FOX (Eagles fly to LA immediately after the Seahawks game and practice in LA between the Seahawks and Rams and then the Rams and Cowboys games) Week 16: at Cowboys, Mon. 12/25 at 4:30 PM ET on FOX (NFL will have Christmas Day games again in 2023) Week 17: vs. Giants, Sun. 12/31 at 4:25 PM ET on FOX (cross-flexed to CBS if they have the doubleheader that week). Game could be played at 3:25 IF the NFL has to move up the start times an hour on New Year's Eve (with SNF at 7:20 instead of 8:20) to accommodate NBC having Miley Cyrus's New Years Eve special that has aired on NBC the past two years and started at 10:30 PM ET). Week 18: vs. Commanders, Sat.-Sun 1/6-7, Time and Network TBD This is how I think it goes. I suspect Amazon Prime will be asking the NFL for one of the two Eagles-Cowboys games especially given the relatively lame slate they got this year. It makes sense for Amazon Prime because NBC can advertise Eagles-Patriots on Thanksgiving as a "Super Bowl LII rematch" (even if we know it isn't) to casual fans who watch that game, which is why I suspect that game will be Thanksgiving night. I also suspect FOX will get the other Cowboys-Eagles game on Christmas Day as a full national telecast (and since CBS had the "late" game on Christmas Day this season, FOX should get it this time) and it would be the second time they played Christmas Day (2006 was the one time that happened). I can also see them do a SEA-LA-DAL road trip where they are based out of LA for two weeks where they practice before and after the Rams game before they go to Dallas. And yes, I think FOX will keep Eagles-Chiefs with that game a full national telecast on FOX while NBC gets the NFC Championship rematch with the 49ers in Week 4. With Rodgers now intending to play for the Jets, I do think the Eagles open in The Meadowlands against the Jets (also solves a problem the NFL would have with the Eagles opening at home due to the Phillies being at home Sunday 9/10 and MLB likely wanting Monday 9/11 being kept "open" in case the Phillies have to make up a game previously rained out at home that day). If so, the Eagles for the second straight year open at home in an ABC-only Monday night game against the Vikings. Also, as Disney is getting additional NFL games this season between ESPN and ABC and again there will be games on Christmas Day, I believe the limit on prime time appearances will be increased to 7 (not including Week 18). Edited to reflect Aaron Rodgers saying he intends to play for the Jets. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
