Chip Kelly’s new-look Philadelphia Eagles are in action on Monday against the Atlanta Falcons on the road, while the San Francisco 49ers — led by Jim Tomsula — host the Minnesota Vikings.

Thanksgiving, on November 26, sees the Lions playing host to the Eagles, the Cowboys entertaining the Panthers, and the Packers and Bears going head-to-head at Lambeau Field.
