Two-hundred-and-twenty-two days following the final game of a disheartening 2012 season, the Eagles finally return to the football field on Friday night at Lincoln Financial Field against the New England Patriots. So much of the chemistry of the organization has changed since the last time the Eagles suited up for game action. With a new head coach, a new coaching staff and a bevy of brand new Eagles on board, this is the first full-speed look at the 2013 Eagles.

The intrigue for preseason game No. 1 is heightened for two extra reasons. One, the Eagles have not tackled full-speed to the ground in Training Camp, so this will serve as the first true test of evaluation for individual players on the defense and along the offensive line especially. Two, the Eagles and Patriots are practicing against each other all week in the lead-up to the Friday night's tilt, so the emotional release of the two teams hitting for real will be palpable. We've got you covered on what to watch

Last Time They Met:

The legend of Nick Foles continued in his second preseason game as a rookie as he led the Eagles to a come-from-behind victory on the strength of 217 passing yards, two touchdowns and a 96.9 quarterback rating. Fellow draft pick Bryce Brown provided a glimpse of his future with 51 rushing yards on nine carries.
