Philadelphia Eagles: 8 observations from week two of the preseason

Share

"It feels good to win, but you know, there's certainly a lot of things we've got to do better".

Oddly enough, "the preseason" wasn't really something Johnson fell back on when trying to pump himself up for a meeting he said he had been looking forward to since the Super Bowl. The two quarterbacks shook hands and embraced. "We've been competitive here", coach Bill Belichick said at halftime on the team's television broadcast on WBZ-TV, as the Patriots led 27-7 at the break. "But, I have a lot of respect for Nick and Carson [Wentz], all those quarterbacks, and that team and the way they played".

But during the game, one Eagles fan topped them all by flying an airplane over the stadium with a banner that read, "41-33 Philly Philly SB LII".

Tom Brady met Nick Foles at midfield after the game. The good news is that means you can save yourself some time and skip this game altogether.

"I'm going to do everything I can to get back on the field and hopefully practice the first day we get back practicing [Sunday]", Foles said ( via ESPN.com ), "and be ready to roll". He was 3 of 9 for 44 yards before suffering the injury early in the second quarter of the Patriots' 37-20 win.

Erstwhile Eagles starter Carson Wentz is on the verge of returning to 11-on-11 practice, but the team is not sure if he will be ready for the September 6 opener against Atlanta.

Foles attempted to unload on a pass down the field, but had his right arm hit before he could throw the ball.

Hoyer completed five of 13 passes for 32 yards and an 11-yard touchdown pass to Cordarrelle Patterson.
