Report: Eagles to open at home against Washington

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz will get to open the season against Washington quarterback Whoever-He-Might-Be in the opener.

According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles will host their division rivals in the Sept. 8 opener.

They also hosted Washington in the opener two years ago and went on to win the Super Bowl, so perhaps it’s a good omen.

They’ll also play at Atlanta in Week Two.

There will be plenty of uncertainty in Washington about that game. After Alex Smith‘s horrible broken leg which is expected to cost him the entire season, they traded for Case Keenum, but have been aggressively scouting all the top college quarterbacks as well.

    I don’t know about that, but I’m certain the Redskins will fare much worse…

  3. Redskins would have won the Super Bowl two years ago if it wasnt for injuries. Last year, we would have won the NFC Championship if the injuries hadn’t hit again. All of you will see how good that front 7 is this year. I dont care if we line Gruden up at QB. The running game and stout defense will carry this team.

  4. Wouldn’t it be something when Colt burns the Eagle defense while Wentz struggles to stay upright and on the field.

  5. The year the Eagles played in the super bowl they had a lot of injuries to some players especially some key players and still won. No injury excuses

  6. Says the 6-3 record before the injuries btw Carson with maybe a running back was your major players hurt.

  7. Willfields try Jason Peters Jordan hicks(our defensive captain) and Chris maragos(eagles special teams captain) to me are also big losses. Not just Wentz and sproles.
