Philadelphia Eagles: 5 Things to Watch for in Friday's Preseason Game

It's called preseason football for a reason: The starters won’t play more than a series or two, and winning or losing the game really doesn’t matter as much as the teams staying healthy.

Backups have a chance to steal a roster spot or even push a starter for regular playing time. Head coach Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles return largely the same offensive unit as the one that captured the NFC East title a year ago.

The defense isn’t much improved and will have to rely on coordinator Billy Davis’ creative scheming in order to win ballgames.

The offense is what could propel this team far in the postseason, although don’t expect to see Kelly give too much away in a meaningless game in early August. Nick Foles will take snaps in his first preseason game as the unquestioned starter, and it will be interesting to see which of the wide receivers breaks through the logjam at the position.
