For the Patriots, they'll look for more offensive production from both the first and second team, as they come off a disappointing performance on August 9 against the New Orleans Saints. The team compiled only 279 total yards despite winning 7-6.
For the Eagles, it will be the team's first game with Andy Reid on the sidelines following the death of the head coach's son Garrett. Additionally, it will be interesting to see how much playing time cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and quarterback Michael Vick receive after suffering various injuries in the past week. The team has announced that Asomugha did not suffer a concussion despite whip-lash symptoms after a mid-air collision during training camp on Monday. Vick, who smashed his hand on an offensive lineman's helmet during in the team's first pre-season game, is good to go according to reports.
