We're 60 minutes away from kickoff and seeing two teams who will meet again in the regular season opener. The Cleveland Browns host the Philadelphia Eagles in a game where the real playbooks are probably left at home. Look for both teams to run more conservative offenses and fewer blitz packages.

The Eagles will most likely keep their starters out for the first quarter or so, with Nick Foles at quarterback while starter Michael Vick continues to recover from the shot he took Monday against New England. It's another great opportunity for Foles to gain experience with some of the first-team offense. Right now he is the favorite to back up Michael Vick in the regular season.

The results on the scoreboard from this game will have no influence in their Week 1 matchup. What will matter is how some of the younger players on both sides perform tonight. The third week of preseason is critical for everyone who is right on the border of making the roster or getting cut.
