Friday Night is the start of a Big Weekend for Philly Sports Fans

Friday Night will be a very exciting night for Philly sports fans with the Philadelphia Eagles opening up their 2022 Preseason schedule with their annual "play-date" against the New York Jets at Lincoln Financial Field (You can hear the game with Merrill Reece and Mike Quick calling all the action on 97.3 FM ESPN Radio!). It’s been seven months since the Eagles last took the field and the excitement is palatable for fans in the region. It's the time of year when the Eagles are the main focus of so many people who wait months for any games and we know football reigns supreme in our area. The preseason doesn’t mean as much as it once did, with the starters only playing one or two series. But the fans get to see their beloved Birds on the field for the first time this year and that is always a joy.
