The Indianapolis Colts (1-1) will face the Philadelphia Eagles (2-0) in what is the third preseason game for both teams.
This game is often considered to be the most important of the four preseason games, as this is the one in which the starters will see the most playing time. The Colts plan to play their starters for the entire first half, go through halftime adjustments, and then start the third quarter with the first team unit, and the Eagles will do something similar. It will be the last time we see the Colts’ starters until the regular season opener against the Detroit Lions on September 11, as the first team guys won’t play in the fourth game against the Cincinnati Bengals. That means there is plenty to watch for in this game, and while the result still doesn’t matter it’s the closest to a regular season game you’re going to get around this time of year.
It will be the 21st meeting all-time between the Colts and the Eagles in the preseason, and the two teams are split at ten wins each in the series. Last year, week one of the preseason featured a Colts vs. Eagles matchup, with Philadelphia winning 36-10.
