Defense on the field for the first time.
- Malcolm Butler starting outside again opposite Revis.
- Vince Wilfork, Tommy Kelly, and Joe Vellano inside.
- Chandler Jones and Rob Ninkovich at defensive end or outside linebacker.
- Bill Belichick loading up on the 3-4 defense in preseason again. Will it show up once the games count?
- Dont’a Hightower and Jamie Collins on for the first time as well.
Eagles offense in shotgun with running back LeSean McCoy next to quarterback Nick Foles.
Foles a quick throw over the middle and Butler in coverage strips Momah after the completion.
- Some help from Hightower with a hit.
- Tommy Kelly falls on it. Great start for the defense.
Eagles predictably threw it no where near Revis’ coverage
