I’m going to leave this up as a feature story for the rest of the NFL preseason, which is two more weeks, and I’m going to continue updating it with Eagle news. For your convenience, the news will be dated with the most recent on top.
8/25/19- The Eagles are traveling to New Jersey to play the Jets for their final preseason game.
8/23/19- Not that it really counts, but the Ravens beat the Eagles last night 26-15. The Eagles are now 1-2 this preseason.
McCown looked really good. Statistically, he completed 17 passes out of 24 attempts. He threw two touchdowns and had zero interceptions. That’s not bad at all.
Both teams headed into the locker room with 11:43 on the clock in the fourth quarter because of severe weather concerns. The game was eventually called off, and that’s where it ended.
8/22/19- Tonight, preseason, Eagles vs. Ravens. I don’t think Carson Wentz will see any game time.
8/20/19– Right now, the eagles have five quarterbacks on the roster, and one just came out of retirement. I guess you could say the Eagles “quarterback situation” is somewhat of an emergency after losing Nate Sudfeld (broken bone on his left wrist) and Cody Kessler (concussion) in the first two preseason games.
Josh McCown, who is now 40, just came out of retirement for his 17th season. He signed a one-year deal that could be worth up to $5 million.
The other two QB’s on roster are Carson Wentz and Clayton Thorson.
8/19/19– Preseason for the Philadelphia Eagles began this year on August 8th. They opened with a home lose against the Tennessee Titans 27-10. The following week the Eagles traveled to Jacksonville, and evened their record with a 24-10 win over the Jaguars.
They have two preseason games left, and that will wrap up the month of August. They’re at home hosting the Ravens on Thursday August 22, and then they’ll travel to Jersey to play the Jets.
Official regular season play begins Sunday, September 8th. The Eagles will play home against the Washington Redskins.
