PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets kick off their preseason tonight at Lincoln Financial Field, a rare preseason opener for both teams (Philadelphia and New York typically face off at the last game of the pre-season).
For the Eagles (+1 via Caesars Sportsbook), starters should play a series or two on Friday night. Zach Wilson should start for the Jets as the team’s first offense and the defense should also play a series or two. Jets head coach Robert Saleh said he would retire the starting offense after a strong first series. Joe Flacco will take over after Wilson, followed by Mike White.
Gardner Minshew, who struggled in training camp, will replace Jalen Hurts. Reid Sinnett will likely follow as he takes on undrafted rookie Carson Strong for a roster spot, even though Sinnett has pulled a huge gap there.
Many second and third team players will get a preview of the opener, so follow here for all the action!
