Philadelphia vs. New York Jets: Report Card Grades for Each Eagles Unit
Michael Perez/Associated Press

It was mainly just backups and camp bodies, but the Philadelphia Eagles trounced the New York Jets by a 37-7 score, rolling on offense, defense and special teams.

Matt Barkley played a fine game from the quarterback position. The running backs totaled nearly 300 yards on the ground, which was helped by a tremendous all-around performance from the offensive line. The defense allowed just a single touchdown, coming when rookie safety Ed Reynolds misjudged a deep ball to Clyde Gates.

Winning a preseason game isn’t important aside from the fact that it’s good to know there is solid depth on the roster, but still, the Eagles couldn’t have asked for much better of a performance as a team.

Chip Kelly now has just two days to trim his roster from the current 75 players to the league-mandated 53. That means 22 Eagles who suited up Thursday night won’t be on the team, although up to 10 of those players are eligible for the practice squad.
