All three of the Eagles' NFC East rivals will be in action tonight and with starters scheduled to play around a half, we should actually have a chance to do some real advance scouting.
The Giants are up first against the Jets in an intrastadium rivalry game that starts at 7:00pm. As meaningless preseason games go, this one is actually pretty interesting and usually gets a bit chippy as each side tries to claim NY/NJ supremacy. The Giants, despite being Super Bowl champs, have taken a back seat to the Jets this offseason as the ESPN/Tim Tebow circus has come to town. Even Eli Manning seemed a bit bugged by the media's total focus on the Jets this offseason, so it should be interesting to see how the Giants react in this one.
