PHILADELPHIA -

The Philadelphia Eagles will practice with the New England Patriots this week at the Novacare Complex. The teams will cap off the week with their preseason opener at Lincoln Financial Field on Friday night.

The Eagles are excited to practice against players wearing a different uniform.

The experience will also be beneficial for Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, who can better evaluate talent and schemes against a more unknown opponent.

The Birds practiced at the Linc on Monday alone.
