Les Bowen previews tough Eagles schedule ahead this season

Pro football starts up again Thursday night, and we preview the season with Philadelphia Daily News sports columnist Les Bowen.

For professional-football fans, the off-season wait is almost over. Thursday night, the Denver Broncos will look to avenge last season’s tough divisional playoff defeat when they host Superbowl champs the Baltimore Ravens.

Eagles fans have to hold out through the weekend. Monday Night Football features the birds versus the Redskins of Washington.

We preview the game with Philadelphia Daily News sports columnist Les Bowen. He says he doesn’t think the likelihood of an upset at Fed Ex Field is really strong. For a preview of the rest of the season, listen to the interview above.
