Revenge will not be on the mind of the Patriots who won a week ago against the Redskins in the opener. That win may be the reason that the early preseason odds for this game favor the Pats.

As mentioned the Pats won the season opener, but it took them awhile to get going. In that game they were down by 17 points before scoring 26 unanswered points to win the game. The Patriots have to be concerned with the play at linebacker. They do not have enough speed or talent to keep up with running backs coming out of the backfield. This was exposed in the Super Bowl and in the first preseason game. Although they won, you know that Bill Belichick is not happy with the team and will let them hear leading up to this game. Belichick is 10-8 in the second week of the preseason so he has managed to win more games than he has lost.
The Eagles lost the opener as (-3) favorites over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The biggest concern for this team so far has been injuries. Both Nick Foles and Carson Wentz are banged up and in camp, the Eagles have suffered some more injuries. In fact the Eagles may be without Alshon Jefferey for the first six weeks of the regular season.

The quarterbacks are slowly returning to practice but it seems like the Eagles are more concerned with staying healthy then winning preseason games. The Eagles have plenty of things to be concerned with to include the play of the offensive line and their depth in special teams. Giving up over 30 point in any game is concerning.
Eagles vs Patriots NFL preseason predictions
The Eagles are always fun to watch in any game, but especially the preseason. Doug Pederson is always going to try something new, like a trick play or a 2 point conversion. The Patriots have played well at home (34-16-2 against the spread) but preseason is another story. The road team is 4-0 ATS the last time that these teams met and the Eagles are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings with the Patriots. This game it is more important for the Eagles to play well since they lost the opener. Pederson is a perfect 2-0 in the second week of the preseason and he will lead the Eagles to a win in this Super Bowl rematch.
