While we are hours away from learning the entire Philadelphia Eagles 2018 regular season schedule, we now know the full details on one game.

The Super Bowl champions in recent years have hosted a season-opening Thursday night game, so expect the Birds to play a high-powered opponent on September 6 at Lincoln Financial Field.

However, with the schedule set to be released later on Thursday, an early schedule leak has the Eagles hosting the Falcons, not the Vikings according to a report by Philly.com's Jeff McLane.

For the third straight year, the National Football League will stage a game in Mexico City: the Los Angeles Rams will host Kansas City in a Week 11 Monday night game on 19 November at 8.15pm ET.


ESPN reported the New York Giants will visit the Dallas Cowboys for a Week 2 divisional matchup while the Green Bay Packers will host the San Francisco 49ers in a Monday night game on 15 October.

The NFL launched the International Series in 2007, with a regular season game between Miami and the New York Giants at Wembley Stadium.

An intriguing home game will feature New Orleans returning to U.S. Bank Stadium. It'll be interesting to see how many of those five games end being played in November and December.

The game will take place at 9:30 a.m. ET (1:30 p.m. local time) at England's Wembley Stadium, the third of three games to be played in London this season. Because they finished last in the NFC West previous year, they will also face the last-place teams from the NFC South and NFC East.
