Inside the Schedule

Few teams in the NFC are shrouded in more mystery than the Eagles. Chip Kelly takes his custom-smoothie-drinking roster into action with two prime-time games in the first three weeks. The first pits Kelly's up-tempo offense against the Redskins and Robert Griffin III (if he's healthy). A Week 3 matchup on Thursday night against Andy Reid's Chiefs offers plenty of subplots. Then it gets real, with a nightmarish September-into-October slate that includes the Broncos, Giants, Bucs, Cowboys and Big Blue all over again.
Key Game
Week 1 at Redskins
A football-nerd paradise. If Robert Griffin III is healthy (not to mention Michael Vick), Washington's read-option will take on the Eagles in our first look at Kelly's up-tempo offense. This rivalry has been a dud in recent days, but two of the league's most innovative attacks make this an opening-week gem that will be heavily studied by film junkies.
