Eagles to host Falcons in NFL regular-season opener as Super Bowl title defense begins
The starting point of the Philadelphia Eagles’ title defense is set.
The reigning Super Bowl champions, seeking to become the first team to repeat since the New England Patriots in 2003-04, will kick off the NFL regular season on Sept. 6 at home against the Atlanta Falcons. The league’s full slate of games for 2018 was revealed Thursday evening.
That game will be a matchup of last season’s NFC divisional showdown, which Philadelphia won 15-10.
The NFL’s International Series will also continue in 2018 with three clashes in London (Raiders-Seahawks on Oct. 14, Tennessee Titans-Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 21 and Eagles-Jaguars on Oct. 28) as well as the Los Angeles Rams squaring off against the Kansas City Chiefs in Mexico City on a Nov. 19 Monday Night Football matchup.
In three seasons at ECU after transferring from Marshall, he made 96 catches for 1,040 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Just having a bunch of brilliant offensive minds around me, I’m just getting a lot of information, Trubisky said.
It all caused Trubisky to remark: I feel like these last three days, I’ve been coached more than I ever have.
The Bears finished 30th on offense and have been ranked in the bottom half of NFL offenses three of the past four seasons. Coach John Fox was fired after going 5-11 in his third season, with Trubisky starting the final 12 games of his rookie year.
Defensive end Dwight Freeney will retire as a member of the Colts on Monday, team officials said.
Freeney was a seven-time Pro Bowler, a three-time first-team All-Pro selection and played in three Super Bowls. He won his only title with the Colts following the 2006 season.
