The Browns (1-1) are coming off a loss to the Lions and will travel to Eastern Pennsylvania to redeem themselves against the Eagles on Thursday night as part of the third week of the NFL's preseason schedule. Browns quarterback Colt McCoy will look to build off two fairly impressive starts in which he completed 19 out of 28 passes for 231 yards and four touchdowns. Against the Eagles, the Browns will have Peyton Hillis, who didn't play last week against the Lions, and it's likely that they'll also get second-year running back Montario Hardesty on the field for the first time since he tore his ACL in the last preseason game of the 2010 season.
The Eagles (1-1) will look to bounce back from a 24-14 loss to the Steelers in week two. Quarterback Michael Vick is especially looking to be better this week. Against the Steelers, Vick only completed five passes for 47 yards and three interceptions. While wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will not be back on the field yet, defensive tackle Mike Patterson will likely be taking the field for the first time since suffering a seizure in training camp earlier in August. One possible position battle to keep an eye on could be at second-string quarterback. Vince Young looked fairly unimpressive against the Steelers but third-stringer Mike Kafka completed 14 of 19 passes for two touchdowns.
