Report: Eagles to Open Season Against Vikings In TNF Action

Philadelphia media member Howard Eskin tweeted Monday morning that according to sources, the Eagles will open their season against the Vikings at home on Thursday, September 6th.

This game will serve as a rematch of the NFC Championship Game where Nick Foles and the Eagles went on to desecrate the Vikings 38-7. The Eagles went on to win Superbowl 52 against the Patriots two weeks later.

The Vikings will also have to see the Eagles have their Superbowl 52 banner raised in a ceremony before the game.
