PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets kick off their preseason tonight at Lincoln Financial Field, a rare opening meeting in the preseason for both teams (Philadelphia and New York typically play each other in the last game of the preseason).
For the Eagles (+1 via Caesars Sportsbook), the starters are expected to play a series or two Friday night. Zach Wilson is expected to start for the Jets as the first team offense and the defense is also expected to play a series or two. Jets head coach Robert Saleh said he would pull the starting offense after a good first series. Joe Flacco will take over after Wilson, followed by Mike White.
Gardner Minshew, who has struggled in training camp, will come in for Jalen Hurts. Reid Sinnett will likely follow as he’s battling undrafted rookie Carson Strong for a roster spot, even though Sinnett has built a huge gap on that spot.
Plenty of second and third team players will get a look in the opener, so follow along here for all the action!
