Eagles Announce 2012 Schedule

Posted:

PHILADELPHIA, PA - The Philadelphia Eagles today announced their 2012 regular season schedule, highlighted with six nationally televised games (subject to change). The Eagles are slated to be on NBC's Sunday Night Football twice (week four vs. Giants; week 13 at Dallas). They will also play twice on ESPN's Monday Night Football (week nine at New Orleans; week 12 vs. Carolina) and once on the NFL Network (week 15 vs. Cincinnati).

"It's always an exciting day around the NFL when the schedule is announced," said Eagles head coach Andy Reid. "It looks to be another competitive slate of games for our football team this year and we're hard at work now going through the process of getting ready for training camp. The draft is right around the corner, our offseason conditioning program for the players is now in full swing, and the mini-camps and OTAs are coming up soon. We're excited about the energy around our football team and we're looking forward to the opener at Cleveland."

"This is a day Eagles fans look forward to," said Eagles president Joe Banner. "You look at those home and away dates and the season starts feeling really close. It's time to start planning tailgates and road trips and when to come in to work a little late on Tuesday morning. We're excited to have five prime time games so that Eagles fans around the country can share the excitement with all our fans in Philly."
