The game will be played during Friday of the Opening Weekend at the Corinthians Arena in Brazil. Their opponent has not been announced yet.

Their opponent to be named will be announced when the NFL releases their schedule in April or May. This will be one of several International games in 2024. However, it’ll be the first NFL game in Brazil.

The Eagles ended their 2023 season in Tampa, Florida. They suffered a loss in the Wild Card Round against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

The loss to the Buccaneers was expected as the team struggled down the stretch. The Eagles went 1-5 to end the regular season before the loss to the Bucs.

This will be the first game with the revamped Eagles coaching staff. If the team struggles, then head coach Nick Sirianni will be under a tremendous amount of pressure.

The Eagles hired Kellen Moore as their offensive coordinator after they fired Brian Johnson. Then, the team hired Vic Fangio as their defensive coordinator.

Fangio, the veteran coach and former NFL head coach, replaced Sean Desai, who was fired after the season. Desai was demoted towards the tail-end of the season.

Matt Patricia, a former defensive coordinator and NFL head coach, replaced Desai. The Eagles defense struggled under Patricia following Sirianni’s decision to make him the play caller.
