The Philadelphia Eagles are set to kick off their season opener on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans at 8:30 p.m.
ET, the team announced on Monday.
The team announced the schedule at a news conference on Monday morning.
It will mark the second straight year that the team will have two preseason games, the first being the 2016 opener at Detroit.
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, who has a history of scheduling his preseason games for Sunday, will have a long-term goal in mind.
“I’ve said from the beginning, we want to play every week, and we want this to be our first preseason game,” Kelly said.
“The week before, we had to do it because it was Thanksgiving weekend.
We had to start with a bye and then do it again.
And then we have to do the preseason opener.
And I think that will be a long term goal.”
The first preseason opener is set for Oct. 31 against the Washington Redskins, and the second will be Oct. 12 against the New Orleans Saints.
The season opener is scheduled for Nov. 7.
