The Philadelphia Eagles will host the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night. Here are ten players to keep an eye on.
We’re officially heading into the second-half of the NFL Preseason on Thursday night for the Philadelphia Eagles. Earlier this week, the Baltimore Ravens came to town as they met with the other Birds at the Nova Care Complex for two joint practice sessions.
On Wednesday, both teams prepared separately as they put together their game plans for Thursday night’s exhibition game. Typically, week three is considered to be the ‘dress rehearsal’ in the NFL Preseason, but this year might be a lot different for the Eagles.
So far, not too many starters got to appear on the field. During the first week, pretty much the entire starting lineup on both sides of the ball were out for the Eagles. Last week, notable stars such as Malcolm Jenkins and Brandon Graham asked to play, but they didn’t acquire a ton of snaps. This week, we’ll see if some other veteran starters will get to play as well.
Regardless if they do or not, that’s not what the preseason is about. The preseason is about those players who are trying to stand out so they can make the final 53-man roster. With final cuts coming in about two weeks, these next two games are absolutely crucial for the roster hopefuls. So with that, here are ten players to keep an eye on for Thursday night.
