Philadelphia vs. New England: Eagles Preseason Week 2 Game Preview
Matt Rourke/Associated Press

The Philadelphia Eagles will travel to Foxborough, Massachusetts to take on the New England Patriots in the second week of preseason contests. Fresh off a 34-28 loss to the Chicago Bears, Chip Kelly will look to get his Birds back on track this Friday night.

Nick Foles was rusty in his first action since last year’s Wild Card Weekend loss to the New Orleans Saints, and his two interceptions matched his 2013 total from the entire regular season.

With that being said, the Eagles still maintained a 28-17 lead midway through the third quarter before letting up 17 unanswered points to the Bears.

Kelly and Bill Belichick have been holding joint practices this week, giving both teams an early look at the other. The final score obviously isn’t nearly as important in a preseason contest as it would be in a regular-season game, but this will still be a difficult test for Philadelphia's offense and defense.

Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis is confident in his team, though, even against an all-time great quarterback in Brady.

One thing is for sure: The Eagles definitely can’t give up nearly 500 total yards of offense as they did to Chicago a week ago.
