Vikings-Eagles will open the 2018 NFL season

The NFL schedule hasnít been released yet, but the first game has reportedly been decided.

The Vikings will visit Philadelphia to take on the Eagles in the annual Thursday night opener in the Super Bowl championís host stadium, according to longtime Philadelphia media member Howard Eskin.

Philadelphiaís slate of home opponents in 2018 is a good one, so the NFL really couldnít have stepped wrong: In addition to the three NFC East opponents and the Vikings, the Eagles also play the Falcons, Panthers, Texans and Colts at home.

But the Vikings game is probably the marquee game on the Eaglesí home schedule, both because itís an NFC Championship Game rematch and because the Vikings caught the biggest fish in free agency, Kirk Cousins.

The game would continue the NFL's tradition of opening each season with the previous season's Super Bowl winner at home on a Thursday night.

It is good for ratings too. Advertisements. I think this has become a good thing the NFL does to start each season.
