The Eagles are playing the Chiefs this season but the Super Bowl rematch apparently will not be the NFL's annual Thursday season opener.
It looks like the champs will be hosting the Lions — who are up and coming to be sure but also made some interesting and questionable decisions on draft night.

The Eagles found out they will not have a short week around Thanksgiving time — at least we think — as they apparently will not be playing in the NFL's first Black Friday game.
We do know the Birds will host the 49ers on December 3, and they will not be playing in any international games. The other confirmed date we know about so far is that they'll be be home for Christmas, hosting division rivals the Giants.
Eagles leaked schedule so far:
Week 2: Vikings (Thursday night)
Week 13: 49ers (home)
Week 16: Giants (home)
