According to Steve Balestrieri over at Patsfan.com, this could be the Patriots’ dress rehearsal as well since the Eagles will be the first of three games over a 10-day stretch for them.
However, according to Mike Rodak of ESPN Boston, several key players for the Patriots may not play much at all tonight because they want to preserve players’ health over that 10-day span with three games.
Rodak says that Tom Brady, Brandon Lloyd, Rob Gronkowski, Wes Welker and Aaron Hernandez may see little or no action tonight.

Quarterback Tom Brady is among several New England Patriots who will not be on the field for Monday night's exhibition against the Eagles.Fantasy Spin:With three games coming up in the next nine days, the Patriots need to be smart about avoiding injuries so it's no surprise that Brady isn't in the lineup Monday.

Let's hope the Eagles make Tom Brady do some of this on the field come Monday.

When Tom Brady was hurt in the 2008 opener and missed the rest of the season, Matt Cassel was ready to step in for the New England Patriots.
If Brady gets hurt again, his replacement doesn't seem as obvious, not after his two backups shared all the snaps in the Patriots latest preseason game.
Second-year pro Ryan Mallett had better numbers than Brian Hoyer, Brady's primary...
In 2012 traditional draft strategies that have worked the past couple of years are now out the window and we have reverted back to the best player available model.
For years we espoused RB-RB-WR-RB-QB or some variation but with all the uncertainty at the RB position, Calvin Johnson, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Cam Newton and Matthew Stafford are now legit 1st round picks...

Locker was the eighth overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft out of the University of Washington...
Tom Brady: After throwing 39 touchdowns (17 to uber-stud Rob Gronkowski), Bill Belichick brought back offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. McDaniels was the coordinator behind 2007’s record-setting offense.
To go along with McDaniels, Brandon Lloyd enters the fray as someone who can stretch the field and provide another option to complement Wes Welker, Aaron Hernandez, and Gronkowski...
