The Philadelphia Eagles schedule is set for 2020, assuming there is a season. There are a lot of contingency plans in place.

However, the league must proceed as if it’s happening without a hitch. Pro Football Talk has reported there is an “extremely small” chance the season gets canceled. The Eagles would stand to benefit from a full 16-game slate since — on paper, anyway — their schedule looks to be one of the easiest in football.

Both starting right tackle Lane Johnson and Eagles Insider Dave Spadaro have predicted a perfect 16-0. Tongue in cheek? Maybe. But it is a favorable schedule. Meanwhile, Redskins head coach Ron Rivera expressed glee about seeing the Eagles pop up in Week 1. He called it a good “measuring stick.”

“I like the fact that we start off against the defending division champs (Eagles), cause its a great measuring stick for us to see where we are as a football team,” Rivera told Larry Michael on the Redskins Schedule Release Show, via NBC Sports Washington. “Then we follow it up by going out to Arizona to see a team that started anew last year, so we’ll get a good sense as to what it takes to get going.”

When Do Single-Game Tickets Go On Sale?

The Eagles haven’t announced when single-game tickets will go on sale for the 2020 campaign. This year presents a whole new set of challenges due to the novel coronavirus. The NFL has already put a refund policy in place that guarantees refunds to fans who purchased tickets to canceled games.

Traditionally, the Eagles have put single-game tickets on sale in mid-May — it happened on May 14 at 10 a.m. in 2019. Check the team’s official website for updates as they usually announce the time and date the day before.

For those unwilling to wait, StubHub has select tickets on sale right now. Upper-level endzone seats for the home opener versus Los Angeles were selling for $158 on the resale market. The prices seemed to be down overall across the website.

It’s been an interesting offseason so far. It’s only going to get weirder.
