These groups will be rather knowledgeable about one another by the time the video game kicks offs after rolling through a variety of joint practices throughout the week leading up to this head-to-head. Of course, the story for the Patriots continues to be the quarterback fight that is underway in between Newton and Jones. In the preseason opener versus Washington, Newton finished 4 of his 7 tosses on the night for 49 backyards, however still appear to reveal some warts that pestered New England’s offense a season earlier. As for the novice Jones, he continues to keep himself in the competitors, finishing 68.4% of his includes the preseason opener for 87 backyards. Arguably the most glaring distinction in between the 2 quarterbacks in recently’s contest was the typical pass length. For Newton, his typical pass length was 0.3 while Jones kipped down a 7.2. That fight will be the marquee story to follow.

Meanwhile, the Eagles have their beginning quarterback in Jalen Hurts — even if Sirianni has yet to really call him that for Week 1. Hurts — who has actually taken all of the first-team associates in practice — began in the preseason opener versus Pittsburgh and played 2 series while finishing 3 of his 7 tosses on the night for 54 backyards. While those numbers do not precisely leap off package rating, he had an outstanding 34-yard conclusion to Zach Ertz and had pass-catchers drop a number of tosses throughout the night, which softened his night from a statistics perspective. So long as he continues to dip into this level, it’ll just refer time prior to he’s formally crowned the starter.
