This third preseason game used to be the one that most resembled real football. The starters used to play into the second half. But even Doug Pederson noted this week that the league is sort of trending away from that. Even if starters play in this game, don’t expect them to play a ton. I suspect we won’t see Carson Wentz at all this preseason.
But there are plenty of other reasons to watch this game. Check out this list of 10 players. I remember you!
The Eagles and Ravens had two joint practices against each other this week and Tuesday began to get a little chippy at the end. That should set up a fun matchup in this game. I know the Eagles game-planned a little bit for this week, so that means they game-planned for the preseason game too. From that perspective, we might be able to get a little more out of this game than others.
Josh McCown hasn’t been with the Eagles for long, but there’s a chance he plays against the Ravens. He looked pretty good for the two days we saw him this week and he’s been around long enough that throwing him into a preseason game early won’t be too much to handle. But after that, we’ll see Cody Kessler and Clayton Thorson. The Eagles should probably play Thorson ahead of Kessler this week because Kessler isn’t long for this roster and Thorson deserves reps with higher-string players.
