The Eagles have an impressive, challenging and exciting schedule in 2014.

The biggest highlight is undoubtedly the Eagles traveling to Dallas for a 4:30 p.m. Thanksgiving date with the Cowboys.

They also have an impressive four primetime games, the first coming against the Colts on Monday Night Football in Week 2.

They will take on the Giants under the lights at Lincoln Financial Field for a Sunday night match in Week 6, the Panthers on Monday night in Week 10 and the Cowboys on Sunday night in Week 15.

The Week 15 matchup will mark the second Eagles-Cowboys game in less than two weeks.

The Birds start the schedule off with the Jaguars, a pretty simple kickoff to the year. DeSean Jackson won’t have to wait long to make his return to Philly, the Eagles will take on the Redskins at home during Week 3.

The prominent placement of the Eagles in primetime and on Thanksgiving is a good sign that the networks believe the Birds will be a big draw, and be competitive in 2014.
