May 9 – The full 2022 NFL schedule won’t be released until Thursday, but Eagles fans can start planning for the Birds’ home opener.
On Monday Good Morning America, ESPN revealed that the Eagles will play Monday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings in Philadelphia in Week 2 on September 19. The game will air on ABC, with a scheduled kickoff at 8:30 p.m.

Individual Eagles-Vikings tickets are on sale now, with the cheapest seats costing around $250 each.
