Week 2 of the NFL preseason continues tonight with four games on the schedule including a possible Super Bowl preview when the Eagles vs. Patriots live stream and TV coverage takes place tonight thanks to the NFL Network. Chip Kelly is looking to build off of his first season as the Eagles coach. Even though Philly was bounced in round one of the NFC playoffs last season, they are coming into the 2014 season with high expectations for 2014.
According to a Boston.com report on Aug. 15, the Patriots are looking to get off to a better start in Week 2 than they did in last week's game vs Washington. Tom Brady is expected to make his 2014 preseason debut tonight after sitting out against the Redskins.
Back-up QB Ryan Mallett didn't play all that well last week, but he should look better in Week 2. The former Michigan and Arkansas standout finished 5 of 12 passing for 55 yards in last week's loss vs Washington while rookie quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo finished with 157 passing yards and a touchdown.
Garoppolo is one kid to keep your eye on in the future. Just like an unknown Tom Brady several years ago, Garoppolo has the build and skills to become a star in this league if given the chance.
Las Vegas odds makers have the Patriots listed at -2, with the over/under set at 46. The money line on this game is New England -140 with the comeback on Philadelphia at +120.
Fans can catch all of the action for this game starting at 7:30 p.m. ET nationally on The NFL Network. The game will also be streaming live on NFL.com through their preseason live options.
