The Ravens are slated to play the Philadelphia Eagles tonight at 7:00 PM EST, in Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field. The team is coming off an excellent win in Baltimore last week, and a sucessful camp session with the Eagles. The two teams still have a bone to pick with each other, so we might see some tempers and frustrations brought out on the gridiron tonight.
The major storyline surrounding tonight's game is Sam Bradford's Eagles debut. The oft-injured quarterback who was traded to the Eagles this offseason, is a definite wild card for the Eagles. Their whole season hinges around how well he can perform, as excellent quarterback play is pivotal in Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense. Reports are the Bradford has looked good in camp, but this should be taken with a grain of salt, as Bradford hasn't played a NFL snap in almost a year. The real question is, can Bradford hold up against a savage Ravens front seven?
Another thing to watch for is the feud between Steve Smith and Eric Rowe. The two have been jawing at each other all week, and nothing gets the sparks to fly like actual game-action. Our own Zac Oakes also did a splendid job profiling some key things for Ravens faithful to look out for in tonight's game.
We won't see too much of the starters as they'll likely only play for a couple of drives. Then the backups and depth will come in. Week 2 is a key week for some of the unproven players to step up and make there mark. Cuts are looming.
So how can your thirst for football be quenched? Below are the many ways you can watch tonight's festivities. Whether you have a mobile device, PC, radio, or television, we've got you covered.
