The NFL preseason kicks into gear this week for the Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans as they face off at Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday. It’s the first action of the preseason for both squads.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. ET. Here’s a rundown of how to watch the Titans vs Eagles online without cable, with the live streaming options being dependent on where you reside:
If The Game is in Your Market

Then, if you don’t have cable, you can watch a live stream of one, some or all of these channels (in select markets) on your computer, phone, Roku, Fire TV or other streaming device via one of the following live-TV streaming services:
NBC, CBS, Fox and CW (all live in select markets; view channels in your area) are among the 95-plus live TV channels included in the main FuboTV bundle, which is largely tailored towards sports. ABC is not available, so fans in Nashville will want to use a different option.

Titans vs. Eagles Preview
The Eagles are hoping to return to the top of the NFC East after watching the Dallas Cowboys make off with the division banner a year ago. No team has repeated as the top squad in the competitive division since the Eagles reeled off four in a row from 2001-04.
Philly started last season with a bit of a hangover following the franchise’s first Super Bowl victory, starting 4-6. However, the Eagles went on to finish 9-7, making the playoffs as a Wild Card team but eventually falling to New Orleans Saints in the Divisional Playoffs.
Much of the team’s success will be linked to quarterback Carson Wentz, who is high on many lists as an MVP candidate. Wentz has suffered season-ending injuries the past two seasons — a torn ACL in 2017 and back injury last year.
The Eagles have not been clear if Wentz will see action in the team’s first preseason game. However, head coach Doug Pederson said he hopes to get backup Nate Sudfeld “as much playing time as possible.”
The Titans are entering their second season under head coach Mike Vrabel. The team finished with a 9-7 regular season record, just missing the playoffs.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota is in the final year of his contract but is focusing on staying healthy, having never played a full slate of games in his career. Last season, Mariota missed time with an elbow injury. He’s posted a 27-28 record as a starter in the regular season with the Titans.
The Titans defense should be a strength, returning nine of 11 starters from a unit that a year ago allowed the third fewest points in the league (18.9 per game).
The preseason kicked off last Thursday with the Hall of Fame Game, pitting the Denver Broncos against the Atlanta Falcons. The Broncos won the plodding preseason tilt 14-10, scoring a late touchdown to record the victory.
For most teams, the preseason consists of four preseason games — the Falcons and Broncos being the exception that play five. Starters mostly see limited reps in the preseason, with playing time peaking in the third game. The games are meant for teams to evaluate talent deeper down on the depth chart and dwindle their rosters to 53 players.
The exhibition games run through Aug. 29, with the kickoff to the NFL’s 100th season taking place on Thursday, Sept. 5 with NFC North rivals Green Bay and Chicago facing off.
