The full 2022 NFL schedule won’t be released until Thursday, but Eagles fans can start planning for the Birds’ home opener.
On Good Morning America Monday, ESPN revealed the Eagles will be playing on Monday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings in Philadelphia in Week 2 on Sept. 19. The game will air on ABC, with kickoff scheduled for 8:30 p.m.
The last time the Eagles played the Vikings was in 2019, with Kirk Cousins throwing four touchdown passes in route to a 38-20 blowout at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Overall, the Eagles are 14-15 against the Vikings.
Individual tickets for Eagles-Vikings are on sale now, with the cheapest seats going for about $250 each.

Eagles-Vikings is part of a doubleheader that night that will also feature the Tennessee Titans taking on the Buffalo Bills at 7:15 p.m. on ESPN. One of the games will be called by new ESPN announcers Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, who jumped ship from Fox Sports during the offseason.
Unlike in previous years, the NFL is milking interest in this year’s schedule release, having dripped out dates over the past week. The league also released the dates of five international games and Amazon Prime’s first exclusive game.
NBC will announce a Sunday Night Football game on the Today show Thursday morning, followed by the full schedule release on the NFL Network at 8 p.m.
