Preseason games are rarely highly anticipated affairs, but today’s contest between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles is different. After all, the two teams met six months ago in the Super Bowl. The Eagles emerged victoriously in February, and the Patriots will not be able to get revenge in an exhibition contest – but they will get more knowledge about their roster as cutdown day nears.
With that in mind, here is all you need to know about the matchup
