NFL Preseason 2012: What to Watch for During Week 2
Week 2 will end with the Philadelphia Eagles facing off against the New England Patriots on Monday night, but there is plenty of action in between. Every squad in the league will look to see what it has in its starters and, most importantly, its backups.
Who Will Win?
This matchup features the two teams that call MetLife Stadium home, but the defending Super Bowl champions will technically be the “road” team in this contest.
Expect to see a lot of Tim Tebow and the Wildcat offense from the Jets, who will try to fine-tune their unique system in time for the regular season.
The G-Men will likely be more conservative, as they are the superior team and would much rather spend time evaluating their reserves.
Regardless, it should be a great game and a fun one for the fans in the New York area.

Sam Bradford will try to rebound from his poor performance against Indy as he looks to get back into the swing of things following a sophomore slump in 2011.
Matt Cassel seems more ready than ever to manage games for the Chiefs and played a solid outing against the Cards.
Both of these teams will be attempting to fine-tune their offensive attacks in preparation for the opening of the regular season. This is going to be a shootout at the Edward Jones Dome.

The “Dream Team” has a tough preseason matchup against the Super Bowl runner-up, and expectations are high for both squads in 2012.
This particular contest is crucial to watch because of the defenses. The Eagles have a highly-touted unit that should be better than it was last year, while the Patriots are hoping to get some sort of production out of the worst group in the league (in 2011) against a high-powered offense.
