NFL Preseason Preview: Eagles Focused On Monday Night Visit To New England
The Philadelphia Eagles will visit the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football this week. Although it’s only the second week of the preseason, expect them to treat this like their third preseason game and hold the starters in a little longer than normal.
Next week, the Eagles will face the Cleveland Browns, which just so happens to be the team that the Eagles are facing in Week 1 of the regular season. That means they won’t want to show them very much.

The Eagles are a veteran team with a lot of consistency from last year’s roster, so they don’t have a lot to prove in preseason games. Many people making their preseason NFL picks expect the Eagles to be one of the NFC’s best Super Bowl contenders but even so, they’ve got a little bit of fine-tuning to do on Monday night.

Philadelphia, we have a problem.
It may be “just” the preseason, but after Mike Vick suffered his second injury in as many preseason games you really start to worry. Every conversation about the Eagles chances this season involve some variation of the phrase, “IF Mike Vick stays healthy.” As he hasn’t been able to make it through even two preseason games without injury...
Michael Vick has always been injury prone. The way that he plays the game somewhat dictates that as does his stature. As electrifying as he can be to watch, there’s years of tape on him for defenses to understand how to play him.
This point is less about packages and schemes and more about Vick’s habits and routines.
His spin move, his shoulder shimmy and even his ankle dance...
According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Eagles head coach Andy Reid said that quarterback Micheal Vick suffered a rib injury during Monday night’s preseason game. He’ll undergo an MRI and CT scan on Tuesday.

Michael Vick gets crushed by Patriots Jermaine Cunningham 2012 (HD) (by BenjiPreseason)
When it's solid advice to tell an NFL quarterback to be more like Donovan McNabb, that quarterback must be in serious trouble. Michael Vick is. The Eagles' speedy passer hasn't even reached the regular season yet, and he's already dealing with significant pain, if not a sidelining injury. Why? Because he finds no problem in risking his season on scampers and heaves...
8 a.m. ET: In their first preseason game of the year, Tom Brady and the Patriots offense looked lost. But while the offensive unit managed just seven points en route to a 7-6 win, the defense far exceeded expectations. Jerod Mayo, Patrick Chung and Co. confused the Saints all night, and rookie defensive end Chandler Jones looked like an unstoppable force off the edge. But they'...
