The Eagles have three days of joint practices scheduled this week at the Novacare Complex.

PHILADELPHIA -

The Philadelphia Eagles have welcomed the New England Patriots to town for the week. The two teams began joint practices on Tuesday in preparation for their preseason game on Friday.

Tuesday's practice was the first of three planned combined practice days between the two teams.

The Patriots are enjoying the opportunity to compete against guys in a different uniform just as much as the Eagles are. In fact, New England has also scheduled a practice with the Buccaneers.

The Eagles have not practiced with another team for 15 years. That last time was with Wade Phillips and the Buffalo Bills.
