Patriots – Eagles Key Matchups, Who Has the Razor’s Edge?Robert Deutsch - USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots return home to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro to take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday afternoon at 4:25 p.m.

The game will be televised by Fox with their announcing crew of Thom Brenneman, Charles Davis and Tony Siragusa on the call. It can be viewed locally on Fox 25 TV. The game will also be on the Patriots flagship radio station 98.5 The SportsHub with Bob Socci and Scott Zolak on the call.

The Patriots (10-1) lost their first game of the season in overtime to the Denver Broncos 30-24. The Pats lost both LB Dont’a Hightower and Rob Gronkowski to injuries during the game. Tom Brady passed for 280 yards and three touchdowns in the loss.

The Eagles (4-7) lost to the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day 45-14 just four days after allowing 45 points to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was the first time in franchise history that the team has allowed 45 points in consecutive weeks. The good news is that QB Sam Bradford is expected back this week.
