AGENDA:

Who: Eagles at Pittsburgh Steelers

What: Second game of the preseason

When: Tonight, 8

Where: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh

TV: FOX29

Radio: WYSP (94.1-FM), WIP (610-AM), ESPN (97.3-FM)

FIVE THINGS TO WATCH:

1. DeSean Jackson: Wideout makes his debut after about a week of camp. Wants a new deal before risking injury too extensively. Looked great at Lehigh.

2. Right tackle: This is a huge chance for a huge guy, King Dunlap, who seemed to be a bit of an afterthought until Ryan Harris' back started bothering him.

3. Kickoffs: Is that facet of the game really going to be as boring as it was last week? If so, at least we know post-TD and field-goal bathroom breaks can be extended.

4. Oh, Henery: Speaking of kicking, the Eagles' fourth-round rookie, Alex Henery, had a real shaky couple of days at Lehigh after being perfect in the preseason opener. He'll stay in the spotlight all season.

5. Linebackers: See above. The starters didn't play enough last week to give us much of a feel. We need to see more.
