The Eagles haven’t played in Los Angeles in more than 25 years.

They will be making two trips to the City of Angels this season as part of their 16-game regular-season schedule, which was officially announced Thursday.

The Eagles’ game in Los Angeles against the Chargers, which is moving their franchise from San Diego, will be their first game there since Sept. 23, 1990, when the Eagles posted a 27-21 victory over the Rams.

They will be making a return trip in December as part of a West Coast swing. The Eagles will play in Seattle for the second straight season Dec. 3, then play the Rams in L.A. on Dec. 10. The Eagles are expected to stay out west between games.

Here’s one opinion on how the Eagles’ 2017 season will unfold. Spoiler alert: They will not be making the playoffs for the fourth straight season.
