Yates had a chance to win it late, but threw an interception on the game's second to last play.

The Eagles came away victorious against the Buffalo Bills 20-16 Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 2 of the National Football League preseason as cornerback Ronald Darby and Alshon Jeffery took the field for the first time with their new team.

One of the biggest positives on the Buffalo offense was LeSean McCoy.

The team fell 20-16 to Philadelphia Thursday night in its second exhibition -this one following a 17-10 loss to the Vikings a week earlier.

One player to watch in tonight's game is Bills rookie receiver Zay Jones. "I just played it right, got high shoulder, and just went up, attack the ball", Darby said on his interception. I have never seen a coach succeed without the respect of all of his players. "They had receivers stemming at me and running different things, so I was just being patient with everything and just cutting off him", he said.

Game Preview: Both the Eagles and Bills are hoping to improve from a less than stellar 2016 season. He was Philadelphia's most productive receiver with 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns.

It was his best yardage output since his last Eagles season and best season from a scoring production standpoint since 2011.


The Bills list Matthews as week to week, and general manager Brandon Beane told The Associated Press on Monday he's "hopeful" the newly acquired player will be ready for the season opener in four weeks.

"I'm comfortable there, for sure", Burton said. Since I was drafted, that was my team.

Darby found a way for Buffalo to pay, as he picked off one of Taylor's passes later in the game. What are you getting back?

"But the cool thing about it is is that it won't be as hard because of the guys I have around me". My line is really good.

Pederson merely said he wanted to see some flow to the offense and he jump-started it by going no-huddle and lowering the degree of difficulty.

"So I look forward to it". The Bills will hold their final day of practice at training camp on Tuesday. The Eagles have very little depth at linebacker, but Roseman had no depth last year at cornerback and still dealt second-year corner Eric Rowe for a conditional fourth-round pick. The Bills' 22-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans on January 8, 2000 would be the last time they sniffed the postseason air.

If you have never had the crab fries from Chickies and Pete's, the next time you are in Philadelphia make sure to grab a cup or a basket. We would not have tried to get Jordan Matthews - who, if you look at his numbers in his first three years, they're pretty good. "I just try to have an attitude of gratitude and keep balling, man". Blount is supposed to help provide that balance, so seeing how Pederson handles that throughout the game, even with the backups in, will be telling after this week. I'm guessing McCoy handled his fare admirably in this incident because McCoy is friendly with the owner of Chickies and Pete's.
