At last, the Philadelphia Eagles finally take way for the 2019 NFL season. Not the actual season per se, but the “season before the season”—preseason. Although the preseason demonstrates what one would call “boring,” the regular season would be just as boring without the extra yet important scrimmaging. So be somewhat thankful there’s a such thing as “preseason.”
Anyway, the Eagles start their preseason expedition at home in Philadelphia, opposing the Tennessee Titans. Whether starters are playing this week is yet to be announced, though they are expected to (play the first quarter).
However, DE Joe Ostman (ACL tear) and LB Kamu Grugier-Hill (MCL sprain) are a definite no-go, and RB Boston Scott, WR Shelton Gibson, RB Corey Clement, WR Mack Hollins, OL Corey Tucker, LB Paul Worrilow, CB Jalen Mills, CB Cre’Von LeBlanc are questionable, as they were mentioned in the Eagles’ most recent injury report.
When and where
The game will kick way on Thursday night, August 8th, at 7:30 PM EST in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at Lincoln Financial Field.
How to watch
The Titans-Eagles matchup will be available to watch on NBC10, and for listening/radio on SportsRadio 94WIP.
Players to watch for
Lets start with the rookies as we do for every preseason game—QB Clayton Thorson, RB Miles Sanders, WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside, OL Andre Dillard, and DE Shareef Miller. Some of the newly acquired guys—QB Cody Kessler, RB Jordan Howard, WR DeSean Jackson, DE Vinny Curry, DT Malik Jackson, LB Zach Brown, LB L.J. Fort, CB Orlando Scandrick, S Andrew Sendejo, and S Johnathan Cyprien. We also get to see linebacker Paul Worrilow suit up as an Eagle for the first time, after tearing his ACL during training camp last season.
As we do every preseason game, we avoid going into specific detail of our predictions… Nonetheless, I think the Eagles have a slight edge over the Titans, given their great depth. An Eagles’ victory against the Titans is also warranted for Philly’s horrible game against them last season.Follow @EaglesFeast
