Eagles 27, Patriots 17

Eagles trip up Patriots backups

FOXBOROUGH — The visiting Eagles didn’t hide the fact that they were going to play their starters for much of the first half of Monday night’s exhibition game against the Patriots. Although it was their second preseason game and most teams use their third as a dress rehearsal for the regulars, coach Andy Reid announced a few days before the game that his starters would see a lot of time.

The Eagles left Gillette Stadium with a 27-17 win, though their top units didn’t get a chance to face the Patriots’ regulars.
