Champion Chargers, other schedule notes

By Dan Graziano

The Philadelphia Eagles' first home game of the 2013 regular season will be on Sept. 15 against the San Diego Chargers. Regardless of the outcome, recent history tells us this is extremely good news for the Chargers. In each of the past four seasons, the visiting team in the Eagles' home opener has gone on to win the Super Bowl. You don't even have to win the game. The Ravens lost to the Eagles in Philadelphia's home opener last year and still couldn't be stopped in January or February. It's fate. May as well start designing the Chargers' rings now.
