The Philadelphia Eagles will host the Cleveland Browns for their preseason home opener on Thursday night. The teams had two joint practices in the days leading up to the matchup, which included a reunion of sorts with defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.

Head coach Nick Sirianni likes to utilize joint practices leading up to the season, explaining that it allows for good competition in a controlled environment. The Eagles had a bit of a slow practice on Monday, but came back and won the day on Tuesday. Given the level of performance on Tuesday, it’s doubtful that many starters get snaps on Thursday night.

Sirianni noted that one position that doesn’t get a pass from the whole preseason is running back, saying after Saturday’s game that he likes those guys to get hit a little before Week 1. Kenny Gainwell and Boston Scott didn’t dress for the first preseason game, but Sirianni said that each would likely play in one of the next two games.

It’ll be good to see more of the Eagles rookies and young players start accumulating reps and experience. Jalen Carter made a big impression in his preseason debut, and Nolan Smith and Sydney Brown had similarly impressive performances. It’s fun when even the depth players are good and exciting to watch, and that seems to be the case with this 90-man roster.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
