Philadelphia Eagles vs. Kansas City Chiefs is set for Friday night at Arrowhead Stadium, and it will be the third preseason tilt for the 2010 Birds.
Usually, Week Three of the preseason is the one where the starters receive the most reps, sometimes playing all the way through the third quarter. That’s good news for Kevin Kolb, who has looked good on the whole so far and will now be matched against a defense he torched for 327 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week Three of the 2009 season.
It’s also good news for a handful of players who will either have the chance to show they belong on the first team deserve a lot of PT from their backup positions. The Birds use a lot of rotational players, especially on defense, so the Chiefs game will give the coaching staff their “best” look at how those rotations might work out in the regular season.
These five guys in particular would really benefit if they can make an impact on Friday night—and could clear up a lot of question marks by doing so.
