It won’t be on the biggest of stages, but the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles are scheduled to meet again in Week 2 of this upcoming preseason, just months after their Super Bowl LII matchup.
The NFL preseason schedule was announced on Wednesday, and the Patriots-Eagles matchup is surely one of the highlights. Look for Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles to get the start, while Carson Wentz continues to recover from his knee injury late last season. Eagles coach Doug Pederson isn’t worried about Wentz playing in the preseason, “I need him ready for Week 1,” he said recently.
Besides facing the Philadelphia Eagles at home in Week 2, New England will also receive a visit from the Washington Redskins in Week 1.
Weeks 3 and 4 will be away games for the Patriots. The team will travel to take on the Carolina Panthers and the New York Giants, respectively.
