NFL: Super Bowl Celebration in Philadelphia Joe Lamberti/Courier Post-USA TODAY NETWORK

Greetings, Raider Nation! Welcome to another exciting week of NFL Preseason football. Tonight there are three games for your enjoyment and edification.

First up at 4:30 Pacific Time is the New England Patriots taking on the Philadelphia Eagles in the two teams’ first meeting since the Super Bowl in February. The Eagles were victorious, and as you can see by the picture at the top of this article, their fans had a raucous celebration. The only way that picture could be more Philly is if the man wearing the traffic cone had vomit on his jersey. It’s a beautiful thing, and a picture that truly sums up what it means to be a sports fan.

As I understand it, Tom Brady should play about half of the game. So let’s all raise our hands to the sky and give Goku Derek Barnett our energy. For the greater good.

Also on the docket tonight is a game on ESPN between the Jets and the Washington Indigenous Persons. The Jets have a long-term solution at QB with the promising and impressive Lego Carson Palmer Sam Darnold, while the Persons have Alex Smith and a total lack of hope for the future.

In the final game of the evening, the Green Bay Packers will face the Pittsburgh Steelers. A. A. Ron Rodgers and his team of undrafted free agent scrubs and losers will take on the criminally overrated Steelers, and frankly they both deserve to lose so neither team’s fan base gets their hopes up in any way.

Enjoy tonight’s games!
