You can catch Thursday night’s preseason clash between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers live from Lincoln Financial Field on television, radio and online. Here’s all the information on how you can do so.
We’ve finally made it. Even with a shiny new Lombardi Trophy, it feels like it’s been too long. After six long months, the Philadelphia Eagles return to the field of play. On the other side of ‘The Linc’ will be the Pittsburgh Steelers, who, themselves, are no strangers to Super Bowl glory.
As is the case with every Week 1 matchup of every preseason, the starters will go for a series or two at the most. We’ll get a ton of reserve action and should get a peek at those guys who are battling for roster spots.
There won’t be any Carson Wentz or Nick Foles game film to pull from this one. Both are fixated on getting healthy for game one, and there’s no need to risk further injury so they can throw five passes. Expect a ton of Nate Sudfeld and Joe Callahan in this one.
