Eagle vs Browns will play a preseason game tonight at Lincoln Financial Field (7:30 PM kickoff, NBC10 locally, NFL Network) after two days of joint sessions. What is at risk?
Naturally, a lot.
Less than two weeks from now, on August 29, the Eagle vs Browns will cut their roster from 90 players to 53, joining the rest of the NFL, thus there are positional fights and roster slots to be earned.
1.The Running Back Work
Eagle vs Browns In the first preseason game, head coach Nick Sirianni rested Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott in favor of running backs D’Andre Swift, Rashaad Penny, Trey Sermon, and Kennedy Brooks.
Gainwell and Scott may play in the game against Cleveland to make sure they are prepared for September 10 and the start of the regular season in New England. Sirianni has stated that he wants his running backs to be tackled once, twice, or even more during the preseason to prepare for the regular season Eagle vs Browns.
Sirianni has praised this bunch since the spring, and once Training Camp started, everyone has had their moments. The Eagle vs Browns will keep how many running backs on their 53-man roster? There is no proof that four is the ideal number, even though history suggests that it is .
2.Sorting It Out Among The Pass Catchers
We are aware of DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown . They’re famous. Quez Watkins had a stellar summer and is currently hindered by a hamstring injury, but it is not anticipated to keep him out of the rest of the regular season .
Recently, Britain Covey has been out with a hamstring ailment. What about Olamide Zaccheaus following those four? The Eagle vs Browns have liked what they’ve seen from him in terms of his blocking, short-area burst, and receiving . Tyrie Cleveland played well against Cleveland after a great performance in Baltimore.
Likewise for Greg Ward . Against the Eagle vs Browns, Devon Allen, Jadon Haselwood, Johnny King, and Joseph Ngata are hoping to make some big plays .
3.More Reps For The QB Room
More repetitions are preferable. It’s unclear whether Jalen Hurts will play in this game (perhaps improbable, even), despite the fact that he had an outstanding performance versus Cleveland, especially on Tuesday.
Against a strong, aggressive, and physical Cleveland defense, Marcus Mariota, Ian Book, and Tanner McKee are likely to see some significant playing time.
4.Who Wins Jobs Along The O-Line?
The Eagles’ offensive line room is very strong, and there are some heated competitions going on to make the roster. After two physically demanding days versus Cleveland, the starters are unlikely to play, thus Lane Johnson, Cam Jurgens, Jason Kelce, Jordan Mailata, and Landon Dickerson might have the night off. The rest of them will be seen, and backup positions will be available.
5.Making Sense At Linebacker
Since Haason Reddick won’t be participating, it’s possible that all of the linebackers, with the exception of Nakobe Dean, may get some playing time. Dean is healthy and performed well in practice against Cleveland, so he might get to see his first preseason action of the year.
While freshman Nolan Smith is difficult to keep off the field and veterans Nicholas Morrow, Myles Jack, and Zach Cunningham are still adjusting to the system, Christian Elliss is hoping to build on his great summer.
6.Young Corners Moving Forward
Josh Jobe has received a lot of playing time and appears to be playing well this month; he finished the joint practice on Tuesday with an interception, while fourth-round draft prospect Kelee Ringo is improving.
These two prospects, along with a few others, including ex-Brown Greedy Williams, ought to see action as the Eagles sift through a young, bright group to identify the five or six players (I’m just estimating the amount of roster spots here) who will make the 53-man roster Eagle vs Browns.
7.Rotation Continues At Safety
The Eagles are working on combinations at safety as a number of players are receiving first-team reps. In two days of practice against Cleveland QB Deshaun Watson, Reed Blankenship had three interceptions, and he has likely stood out among the bunch the most.
We’ll see how the other players fare as they have all performed admirably and will continue to receive action. Though it’s clear that K’Von Wallace, Terrell Edmunds, Justin Evans, and rookie Sydney Brown have stepped up to force the coaching staff and Executive Vice President/General Manager Howie Roseman to make a number of difficult decisions, that’s how a team wants it to be Eagle vs Browns.
