How to Live Stream Eagles vs Ravens
Well, sort of. We probably won’t see much of the Eagles’ first team units. Jim Schwartz’s defense might get some limited playing time after previously playing against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week. But it’s hard to imagine we’ll see Carson Wentz and the Eagles’ starting offense.
Teams resting their starters in preseason games seems to be the way the league is going. Doug Pederson said as much earlier this week. A number of Eagles players talked about how joint practice reps are more valuable than uncontrollable preseason game scenarios.
That mindset is certainly different than how things used to be. The third preseason game was previously known for being the “dress rehearsal” game ahead of the regular season. You know, the one where the starters actually played into the third quarter.
But we probably won’t be seeing that on Thursday night. Instead, we’ll have the luxury of watching the Eagles’ backups battle for playing time and/or jobs on the 53-man roster (or 10-man practice squad).
It’s unclear who’ll get the start at quarterback. It could be Josh McCown if the Eagles want to get the 40-year-old some reps in their scheme. It could be Cody Kessler assuming he’s fully cleared for game action after suffering a concussion last week. Or it could be Clayton Thorson, who most needs the reps as a developmental player.
At the very least, we do know we’ll be getting some Eagles football action on Thursday night. And, as always, that beats no football at all. It’ll also be nice to know there’s just one more preseason game remaining after Thursday’s final whistle.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
