Philadelphia Eagles vs Buffalo Bills: How To Watch, Radio Call, Odds, Thoughts


You can catch Thursday night’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Buffalo Bills from Lincoln Financial Field on television, radio and online, and we’ve got the information on how you can do so.

Things are heating up. The Philadelphia Eagles officially wrapped up training camp on Tuesday. Practices will, obviously, continue to roll on as they normally would, but camp, itself, is over. Thankfully, there have been no major injury issues. The second preseason game is on Thursday, August 17th and the Buffalo Bills are coming to town.

The return marks the return of Bills head coach Sean McDermott, who learned the ropes of NFL coaching by being the understudy of the great Jim Johnson. McDermott would eventually assume the role of defensive coordinator and secondary coach for the 2009 and 2010 seasons before the two sides, eventually, moved on from one another.

Two of the newest Eagles, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and cornerback Ronald Darby will both make their debuts in the all-white Eagles jerseys. Darby will be facing his former team, and the seemingly always bitter LeSean McCoy returns to Philadelphia to face his. That should get everyone fired up despite the fact that Jordan Matthews, as we reported earlier this week, won’t be in the lineup for Buffalo.
