The Eagles and Jets wrap up their respective preseasons on Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Philadelphia Eagles will host the New York Jets in their final preseason tune-up tonight.
Most of the starters will get to sit back and enjoy the show as the bottom of the roster battles it out to avoid being cut by the Friday 9 p.m. ET deadline. Of course, Michael Vick won't be in action with his rib injury still in need of some rest and relaxation.
Other Eagles players who have ruled out include Mike Kafka (hand), Nate Allen (hamstring), Jason Babin (calf), Casey Matthews (ankle), and Riley Cooper (collarbone).
Head coach Andy Reid has already said Nick Foles will get the start in Vick's stead but will only play one quarter before handing over the reigns to Trent Edwards.
As for the Jets, they'll be trying to just score a touchdown. New York is yet to score a touchdown of any kind this preseason, the first team to have that dubious distinction through three exhibition games since the 1977 Atlanta Falcons.
Time: 6:35 p.m. ET
Odds: PHI -4.5 and 37 O/U
