2014 Philadelphia Eagles Road Schedule
It's another season and another schedule packed to the gills with intense
matchups that will have the Eagles' faithful turning up all over the country, giving you plenty of reasons to head out and
see the Eagles away from home this season. Even though home games at Lincoln Financial Field are obviously all the rage for
a reason, the home schedule is only half of the equation, and every fan needs to get out and see their favorite team on the
road sooner or later. Once you're there in the middle of a nail-biter that has the Eagles on the verging of silencing the
home crowd, you'll definitely be glad that you're not sitting anywhere else.
One of the matchups that the Eagles always
look forward to is when they head to New Jersey each season to take on the New York Giants. The Giants had a bit of a down
season in 2013, but this rivalry remains one of the biggest in the game, and you can count on the season-capper against the
Giants on the road on Dec. 28 to be one of the very best matchups of the season. Another divisional rival that could give
the Eagles some trouble this season is the Dallas Cowboys, a team that is always bursting with talent and will be a real challenge
for the Eagles on the road on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27. You can always count on the Redskins-Eagles matchup to be loaded
with fanfare as well, a matchup that will bring plenty of fans to the stands on Dec. 20.
Outside of the division, the
road matchup isn't exactly lacking in exciting games either. A Monday Night Game in Indy against the Colts is sure to be one
of the top matchups of the season for the Eagles, as will a Nov. 2 game in Houston against the Texans and a Nov. 16 matchup
against the Packers in Green Bay. Put it all together and there are all kinds of opportunities for committed fans this season,
giving you plenty of reasons to head out and join in the bone-jarring excitement as the Eagles hope to get right back to the
top of the standings.
Philadelphia Eagles Team Info
The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off a fine 2013
season, and it looks like the hire of head coach Chip Kelly was a fantastic move for this organization. Kelly found his starting
quarterback in Nick Foles, who has played incredibly well since taking over the starting gig and suddenly looks like one of
the top signal callers in the league. You obviously can't forget about LeSean McCoy either, as he was one of the best runners
and most versatile backs in the National Football League yet again last season, making life easier for Foles along the way.
Now that they've added the speedy Darren Sproles into the backfield mix in the offseason and have a very talented defensive
squad to boot, this is a team that can do some very big things in 2014.
NFL Road Experience
When it comes
to top-notch football, the only place to look for it is the National Football League. The NFL boasts some of the most exciting
sports action every time a game is played, and that's why people travel all over the country to see their favorite teams play
on the road. The Eagles will hit eight opposing teams' stadiums during the regular season this year, and you can be there
to witness all of the action for yourself. It's an amazing experience to be there amidst a hostile crowd, and it doesn't get
any better than witnessing that hostile crowd being silenced by the Eagles as they pull away with the lead late in the game.
Make sure you're there this season for all of the Philadelphia Eagles' biggest road contests and you'll be glad that you're
still sitting at home, left to wonder what the atmosphere of the big game is like.
Philadelphia Eagles History
Philadelphia Eagles first hit the field all the way back in the 1930s, making them a tradition in the City of Brotherly Love
and a major staple of the intense local sports scene along the way. It took the club more than a decade to find major success,
but they eventually got there by winning the NFL Championship in 1948 and 1949. The Eagles have made the postseason more than
20 times throughout their rich history, and have even been to the Super Bowl twice. Though they haven't yet brought home a
title, fans are excited that bringing home the Vince Lombardi Trophy will happen much sooner than later, as this is an exciting
team with an explosive roster that can win in any numbers of ways on the gridiron.
Philadelphia Eagles Trivia
did Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles play his college ball?
The answer is the University of Arizona. Foles
wasn't selected until late in the third round, though he's already proven to be an incredibly undervalued draft pick once
he made it to the Pro Bowl in 2013 following an unbelievable first year as the starter.
