Week 1 of the NFL Preseason showed some ups and downs for the Philadelphia Eagles. Now, heading into Week 2 against the New England Patriots on Friday night, Philadelphia’s starters will see some legitimate playing time in order to gear themselves up for the regular season. While the team in general needs to cut down on the penalties, a few individual players need a good showing to restore confidence. Here are five guys to watch for Week 2.
Allen Barbre is under a lot of pressure this preseason. He will likely play until at least halftime, but his time with the starters will be critiqued the most.
Reports have indicated that he has not stood out in camp thus far. For Philadelphia’s defense to have any success, they will need some of their young guys to step up. Fletcher Cox needs to be one of those guys.
Riley Cooper has missed a lot of practice time with a foot injury. Now that he is ready to go, he will need to pick right up from 2013.
He tweaked a hamstring in Wednesday’s practice, so he may miss Friday’s game. However, if he is out there, all eyes will continue to be on Jeremy Maclin.
While the interceptions may not have been his fault last week, Nick Foles still had a subpar performance. He will need to have a good showing for Philadelphia fans to take a deep breath.
