The full Philadelphia Eagles 2022 schedule will be officially released on Thursday night with the rest of the NFL schedule. As anticipation builds, early announcements and schedule leaks are front and center on the Thursday news cycle.

Eagles Schedule Leak

Philadelphia is one team fortunate enough to hear a pair of of schedule leaks from Eagles insider Jeff McLane, who alleges the team will open up on the road against the Detroit Lions in Week 1. McLane also details a Christmas Eve matchup on the road against the Dallas Cowboys.

Week 1 Eagles vs Lions

It's back-to-back years with the Eagles drawing favorable Week 1 matchups. Philadelphia opened up against the Atlanta Falcons a year ago, handing their opponents a 32-6 win.

Atlanta is expected to take another step back after going 7-10 in 2021, but losing longtime quarterback Matt Ryan to the Indianapolis Colts this offseason.

Eagles vs Cowboys Christmas Eve

The Eagles' Christmas Eve matchup should be one of the best of the year, according to this schedule leak. Arguably the best NFC East rivalry, a Christmas Eve matchup against the Cowboys is sure to bring fireworks if both teams are still vying for playoff contention.

Philadelphia will look to avenge an 0-2 record against the Cowboys last year, while both teams hold top odds to win the NFC East on FanDuel Sportsbook. Dallas is slightly favored at -110 odds, but the Eagles are in the mix at +260.
