PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The Philadelphia Eagles' 2024 regular-season schedule includes a game against former Super Bowl-winning coach Doug Pederson, a trip to Brazil and several prime-time games.

Familiar faces return to the Linc

Jason Kelce retired from the NFL in March after playing with the Eagles for 13 seasons, but he'll make his return to Lincoln Financial Field in his new role at ESPN on "Monday Night Countdown" earlier in the season. 

The Eagles will host the Falcons in their home opener at the Linc on Monday Night Football, and Kelce will be on the pregame and halftime broadcast. It will also be the third straight year the Birds play Kirk Cousins in their home opener in a prime-time game. They've won the past two games. 

Another familiar face, Pederson, will return to Philly in Week 9 for Sunday Night Football when the Eagles host Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Pederson, who helped Philly win its first-ever Super Bowl, is heading into his third season with the Jags. The Eagles beat Pederson and the Jags in the 2022 season at the Linc. 

Eagles will be tested on the road early

After an ugly finish to the 2023 season, the Eagles will be tested early on the road in the 2024 regular season. 

Five of Philadelphia's first seven games will be played away from the Linc. The Eagles-Packers game in Brazil on Week 1 counts as a home game for Philly, but they'll only play in South Philly twice before the start of November. The Eagles went 5-4 on the road in the 2023 season. 

However, the Eagles finish the year with four of their final games at home with some easier opponents, including the Panthers, Commanders and Giants. 

Eagles 2024 schedule is easier than 2023

Last season, the Eagles faced a gauntlet of opponents and had the most difficult schedule in the NFL, according to ESPN. They faced Super Bowl contenders like the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers consecutively, but the 2024 schedule doesn't include a stretch that compares to 2023's grueling stretch.  

Philadelphia's toughest stretch of the schedule will likely be a stretch from November to early December when they face the Cowboys, Rams and Ravens. Surprise teams emerge in the NFL every year, but the Eagles' 2024 schedule is much easier on paper. 

The Eagles have one of the easier schedules in the NFL in 2024 based on their opponent's combined winning percentage from the 2023 season. 

According to Deniz Selman on X, the Eagles have the sixth easiest strength of schedule based on average opponent ranking by current Super Bowl odds.

Eagles fans react to 2024 schedule

Inside Chickie's and Pete's in South Philly, some Eagles fans weren't that excited to see five prime-time games on the 2024 schedule and the early bye week. 

"I really don't like the prime-time games like that because I go to bed early," Mike Covington said. 

"I don't like it, I wish it was later in the season," he added about the bye week. "But it's the NFL, what are you going to do?" 

Birds fans were all in agreement the team needs to get off to a hot start, and Reuben Bobo said he thinks general manager Howie Roseman and the front office have done their job this offseason to help the team succeed. 

"I'm happy that we shored up our secondary," Bobo said.
