Philadelphia Eagles 2012 Preseason Schedule Released

The Eagles Preseason Kicks-0ff On August 9!

The preseason may not be the most exhilarating set of games to watch, but after a painfully long few months without Philadelphia Eagles football, you will all be watching. Come on. Admit it.

Luckily, the Eagles have been nice enough to grace us with the times, dates, networks, and of course the opponents the team will be playing when the preseason kicks-off at the beginning of August. Here’s the breakdown:

August 9 – vs. Pittsburgh Steelers – 7:30 p.m. – (6ABC)

August 20 – @ New England Patriots – 8:00 p.m. – (ESPN)

August 24 – @ Cleveland Browns – 7:30 p.m. (6ABC)

August 30 – vs. New York Jets – TBD

Fun stuff. The Eagles get a re-match against cross-state rivals in the Steelers, one last run at the seemingly perfect Tom Brady Patriots, a beat-up game against the Brownies, and then a game where we get to see Tim Tebow start in New York! Overall, not too bad of a lineup, and we should get a good taste of the depth on the team. As customary for any preseason, we will likely see the starters play the first half through the first three games, and then back-ups for the last half. In game four it’s all back-ups (sorry Tim Tebow!).

Here are the opponents that the Eagles will have on the regular season schedule that the NFL will release later this month:

Home – Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Washington Redskins

Away – Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Washington Redskins

Yeah — it’s the ringer. Let’s hope Philly is in gear once the season starts or it could be a rough year!

    I am hoping for a great season from the Eagles. The preseason looks like it’ll be a few good games, and hopefully that gives the Eagles a chance to get in gear, and really pull off a great season this year!
