Philadelphia – The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets kicked off pre-season tonight at Lincoln Financial Stadium, a rare pre-season opening meeting for both teams (Philadelphia and New York usually play each other in their last pre-season game).
For the Eagles (+1 via Caesars Sportsbook), beginners are expected to play a series or two on Friday night. Zach Wilson is expected to start with the Jets as the team’s first offense and the defense is also expected to play a series or two. Robert Saleh, the Jets coach, said he would pull the primary attack after a good first streak. Joe Flacco will take over after Wilson, followed by Mike White.
Gardner Minshaw, who struggled in training camp, will replace Galen Hurts. Red Sennett will likely follow him as he battles undecided debutante Carson Strong for a spot on the roster, even though Sennett has built a huge gaping hole in that spot.
Lots of 2nd and 3rd team players will be getting a look at the opening match, so stay tuned here for all the action!
