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.

We here at PatsFans.com are continuing our  “Razor’s Edge”  column in 2015 to give a quick break down on some of the key matchups of the game and what you can look for in how the game plays out.

Series History:
The Patriots and Eagles will meet for the 13th time on Sunday. The all-time series is split evenly at 6-6, with the Patriots winning the last four meetings. The Patriots hold a 3-1 advantage at home and also beat the Eagles in Jacksonville 24-21 in Super Bowl XXXIX.

The last meeting between the teams was in November of 2011 with the Patriots taking a 38-20 victory in Philadelphia.

Here is a look at some of the key matchups and who holds the Razor’s Edge.
