By Mark Gallagher

So, how much of a factor will be the Eagles schedule be when they take the field in September?

Here’s data from SI.com that shows the strength of schedule as far as rushing attempts (RATT), rushing yards (YDS), yards per attempt rushing (YA), rushing touchdowns (TDs), completions (COMP), passing attempts (PATT), passing yards (YDS), yards per attempt passing (YA), and passing touchdowns (TDS).

This information is based on 2019, which will work as our starting point for 2020. We’ll look at all the changes on offense on each team in the NFL plus the upgrades and downgrades on each team on the defensive side. We’ll update this table when we finish the research on all 32 teams.

2019 LG Average = the league average of all stats from all 32 teams in 2019.

2019 Results = this is the results for each team in the NFL.

2019 Adjustment is based on the 2019 league average and the 2019 results for each team, this number will show if each team is above or below the league average in each stat category and the basis for the strength of schedule.

Philly starts and ends 2020 with two top matchups for their rushing offense against the Redskins. They have two other favorable games (CIN and CLE) while expecting to be challenged on the ground by Baltimore and New Orleans.

The Eagles should have the most success passing the ball against the Cardinals and their two contests vs. the Giants. Philadelphia has three straight games (SF, PIT, and BAL) over the first half of the season vs. teams that ranked poorly in passing yards in 2019. The Browns’ pass defense also played last year.
