Start time, channel, how to watch and stream

The Eagles continue their preseason Sunday in a 1 p.m. game against the Cleveland Browns, but don’t expect to see Jalen Hurts or many other starters on the field.

The Eagles just completed several joint workouts against the Browns, which gave Nick Sirianni and the coaching staff an in-depth look at the roster in action. The same goes for Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski, who told reporters the most the starters will not take the field on Sundayincluding newly suspended quarterback Deshaun Watson.

“Joint workouts give you a gaming experience, a controlled gaming experience,” Sirianni said earlier this week. “For two straight days in practice working on things you want to work on and the other team wants to work on, and you don’t get your quarterback, stuff like that. It’s not straight to the ground. It is therefore a controlled experiment.

The game airs at 1 p.m. on NBC10, with play-by-play from former Phillies announcer Scott Graham and analysis from former offensive lineman Ross Tucker. Dave Spadaro will report the touch.

Sunday’s preseason game can also be heard on 94.1 WIP. Merrill Reese and Mike Quick – in their 24th season calling games together – will handle the broadcast, with longtime WIP host Howard Eskin reporting from the sidelines.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Where: FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland

  • TV: NBC10 (Scott Graham, Ross Tucker, Dave Spadaro), NFL Network (Chris Rose, Joe Thomas, Aditi Kinkhabwala)

Good news for Eagles fans who don’t live in Philadelphia — the Birds’ second preseason game will be broadcast live nationwide on the NFL Network.

Because the game is in Cleveland, the NFL Network will air local coverage of the Browns on News 5, which features Chris Rose’s play-by-play and analysis of 10-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman Joe Thomas. Aditi Kinkhabwala will report from the sidelines.

While the Eagles’ final preseason game against the Miami Dolphins on Saturday, August 27 will not be shown live on the NFL Network, fans who live outside of Philadelphia can stream it live on NFL+, the new league streaming service. It’s $4.99 per monthalthough they do offer a seven-day free trial.

Eagles fans living in a handful of areas west of Philadelphia — including Harrisburg, York and Lebanon — can watch the game even though providers don’t carry NBC10.

Fox43 airs NBC10’s coverage of the Eagles’ three preseason games, a decision that drew some complaints from viewers last week when the network shoved MLB’s “Field of Dreams” game in favor of the Birds.

“This is an atrocity to sports fans everywhere,” a follower wrote on Fox43’s Facebook page. “A meaningless preseason football game based on a movie baseball game that countless baseball fans can relate to.”

Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson was an active participant in both joint practices against the Eagles and took a few snaps during Cleveland’s preseason opener.

So why is he allowed to play if he was suspended 11 games by the NFL for allegations of sexual misconduct involving two dozen women.

Watson’s suspension will not take effect until the Browns reduce their roster to 53 players on August 30. Until then, Watson is free to pray, train and be a general distraction for his team.

Although cleared to play, Watson will not take the field against the Eagles. Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters that Jacoby Brissett will start against the Birds and that Watson won’t take a picture in the team’s final two preseason games.
