The Eagles will open their preseason schedule against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Aug. 9. In a development that is sure to please South Philly traffic cops, the Phillies are off that night.
The Birds make a visit to New England on Aug. 20 in a nationally televised Monday nighter. After a quick turnaround, the Birds are back on a plane for a game at Cleveland on Aug. 24. The final exhibition contest is the night of Aug. 30 when the Jets come to Lincoln Financial Field. (The Phils have a day game against the Mets at Citizens Bank Park.)
