Nick Foles leaves Eagles' preseason game with shoulder strain

Tom Brady and Nick Foles finally shake hands after silly Super Bowl'controversy

Most starters were on the field for New England on Thursday, including quarterback Tom Brady.

Tom Brady went 19-for-26, 172 yards and two touchdowns in a stellar first half in the Pats' 37-20 win in National Football League preseason play Thursday night at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

Foles got the start Thursday because No. 1 quarterback Carson Wentz continues to work up to full speed after last season's torn ACL. "We've been competitive here", coach Bill Belichick said at halftime on the team's television broadcast on WBZ-TV, as the Patriots led 27-7 at the break.

In what was undoubtedly a complete coincidence, and not a troll job pulled off from within the Patriots' own stadium, the Eagles' Twitter account posted a pregame photo Thursday showing a pair of jerseys that would be used in the upcoming game.

It was a different Super Bowl MVP that everyone was talking about last night, however.

Arrest after 'mass overdose' in U.S. park
Doctors said some victims improved after being given the opioid overdose antidote drug naxolone, while others did not. A suspected drug dealer has been arrested after more than 70 people overdosed in the space of 24 hours in CT .

But during the game, one Eagles fan topped them all by flying an airplane over the stadium with a banner that read, "41-33 Philly Philly SB LII".

"That was kind of made up to me because that was never my intention that I would be a bad sport", he said after the Patriots' 37-20 win in the rematch.

With no shortage of chances to prove himself, Brady finished the contest going 19-of-26 for 172 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions on the night. "I've always respected Tom, I met Tom several times and it was great to see him".

"I was getting ready to throw a deep ball and a guy grabbed it as I was following through", Foles said. "We'll check it out tomorrow more thoroughly". But it feels alright, feels pretty good. Even though the Patriots would have much rather won the game in February, they will certainly take this win.

His status will be a hot topic Friday on Philadelphia sports-talk radio, all the more so because the months-long, burning issue of Brady's lack of a handshake for Foles has now been resolved.
