Early Kickoff

New England won its first game of the preseason last night, 24-6 over Philadelphia. The starters didn't play much, as expected, especially with the pouring rain early in the game. It's always dangerous to draw conclusions from preseason, though new additions RB Corey Dillon and P Josh Miller appear to be upgrades at those positions and NT Keith Traylor held his own between Richard Seymour and Ty Warren on the defensive line. Backup QB Rohan Davey was shaky, and one of his touchdown throws was lofted into a crowd and likely would have been intercepted if more experienced defensive backs were in the game. Of course, Philadelphia is a young team in the secondary, especially at cornerback, so New England's success through the air last night needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
